INDIANAPOLIS — Two days after former Ole Miss wide receiver Laquon Treadwell called out former Florida cornerback Vernon Hargreaves at the NFL scouting combine, the latter prospect played nice.
Thursday, Treadwell purposely left out Hargreaves when listing the three best cornerbacks he faced during his SEC career, adding, “not Vernon Hargreaves,” for good measure.
Hargreaves avoided that route on Saturday morning, saying Treadwell is the draft class’ top receiver.
“He can do everything,” Hargreaves said. “He’s big, fast, strong. Catches the ball in traffic. There’s not a lot you can do to get the ball off of him.”
Moments afterward, he was made aware of Treadwell’s lack of respect.
“Hey,” Hargreaves said, “everybody’s entitled to their own opinion.”
