Laquon Treadwell will be introduced to Minnesota when the Vikings hold a press conference at 3 p.m. Friday. We'll hear from Treadwell then, but here's what the rest of the world is saying about him.

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer, via "This kid is really a lot like I'm trying to build this football team. He's a tough, physical player that's a heck of a competitor. He is the best blocking receiver that I've ever seen."

North Dakota native and lifelong Vikings fan, actor Josh Duhamel, called the pick the "best possible start" to the draft.

While Zimmer said Treadwell runs a lot of the routes that the Vikings like to run, Pro Football Focus gave the Vikings a low grade for the pick, saying Treadwell and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater isn't a good marriage because Treadwell can't get separation from defenders and Bridgewater can't make throws into tight windows. gave the pick an A for a grade, saying there's no reason he won't immediately become Bridgewater's go-to receiver.
