WRs da primeira rodada de 2016 Josh Doctson, corte de Laquon Treadwell


Following three seasons of falling short of first-round expectations, wide receiversJosh DoctsonandLaquon Treadwellfell short of making their now-former teams’ 53-man rosters.

Doctson, the 22nd overall pick of the 2016NFL Draft, was cut Saturday by theWashington Redskins, while Treadwell, the 23rd pick of the 2016NFL Draft, was waived as theMinnesota Vikingsannounced their squad.

Neither move was hardly a surprise and what’s next for both remains to be seen as Washington and Minnesotashopped the receivers, but obviously found no suitors.

Of the two, Doctson was certainly the more productive as he’s coming off a 44-catch 2018 season in which he tallied 532 receiving yards and had six touchdown grabs in 2017. It wasn’t enough to hold a spot for him on the roster as theRedskinswill give a chance to younger talent such asTrey QuinnandTerry McLaurin, asPaul Richardsonis likely to be the team’s No. 1.

Hardly a surprise, it marks the conclusion that many saw coming even before training camp began asChad Beebeemerged as the team’s No. 3 receiver.

The 24-year-old never found his way in Minnesota as three seasons of toiling totaled but 56 receptions for 517 yards and one singular touchdown.

In 2018, Treadwell produced 35 catches for 302 yards and the aforementioned TD. Those numbers were all career-highs.

It wasn’t the only notable cut for Minnesota, whichparted ways with kicker/punterKaare Vedvikjust a few weeks after trading for him.

As memorable as the 2016 second-round draft class of receivers —Sterling Shepard,Michael ThomasandTyler Boyd— has been, the first-rounders — which consists ofCorey Coleman,Will Fuller, Doctson and Treadwell — have been forgettable and cuttable.
