ROUND 1 LIVE ANALYSIS

Follow along with live coverage and instant analysis from Post NFL writer Mark Maske and draft analysis John Harris.

LAST PICK

23. Minnesota Vikings

Team needs: WR, OL

The pick: Laquon Treadwell | WR | Mississippi

The Vikings selecting Laquon Treadwell is a sensible, far-from-surprising choice. They needed another wide receiver to help their young quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater, and this was the portion of the opening round in which the wideouts were expected to come off the board quickly. Unfortunately for the Bengals, who are up next and lost Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu in free agency, the top four wide receivers are now gone. — Mark Maske

What he brings: He’s the prototype, next-level big receiver, but he won’t run away from cornerbacks or get a ton of separation in
