Add the Vikings to the list of teams that have signed all of their draft picks.

They signed seven of their eight picks in one fell swoop last week and rounded out the group by getting wide receiver Laquon Treadwell under contract on Thursday. As a first-round pick, Treadwell signed a four-year deal with a team option for a fifth season.

The Vikings made Treadwell the 23rd overall pick of the draft in hopes of adding some potency to their passing game. He set a record at Ole Miss with 202 career receptions and turned them into 2,393 yards and 21 touchdowns.

Treadwell isn’t the fastest receiver in the class, but his precision and hands more than made up for it during his college career. Stefon Diggs is established at one receiver spot and Treadwell should have every opportunity to get the spot across from him with the first team.
