Vikings rookie Laquon Treadwell wasn't the first wide receiver picked in the NFL Draft, but he does have the best chance to succeed as a rookie – that's what Randy Moss is saying.

In a wide-and-ranging interview with The MMQB, Moss said Treadwell is in a good place because he has a good quarterback throwing him the ball.

"I like the pickup that the Minnesota Vikings made in Laquon Treadwell because he has a quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater. Sometimes you have to look at the quarterback, because there could be a wide receiver who goes to a team where the quarterback may not be that good in terms of arm strength. And sometimes a quarterback may go to a team where the wide receivers really aren’t that good. But I think when you look at Laquon Treadwell going to Minnesota, that’s a good situation. Teddy Bridgewater is going into his third season, and he’s had his feet wet a little bit and has the ability to understand how to move the ball down the field. I am definitely waiting to see how that is going to play out."

Bridgewater has been working out at his "Teddy Two Gloves" passing academy in Florida with the likes of Odell Beckham Jr., Antonio Brown, Cordarrelle Patterson and Stefon Diggs. That's some pretty good company for a QB entering his third year in the league.
