One of the top wideouts in the 2016 NFL Draft class is coming to Berea.

Ole Miss wide receiver Laquon Treadwell is schedule to meet with the Cleveland Browns on Thursday, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal.

The team's policy is not to confirm meetings, though Pro Football Talk has also reported on the upcoming meting.

Treadwell becomes the third wideout to visit Berea, following Baylor's Corey Coleman and Temple's Robby Anderson.

Draftniks call Treadwell the best in a thin corps of wideouts in the upcoming draft. As our friends at Red Cup Rebellion wrote, Treadwell ran a slightly disappointing 40-yard dash time of 4.63 at his pro day. But considering his 6'2, 221-pound frame, the number should not impact his draft stock much. Treadwell is slated to come off the board midway to late in the first round.

The 20-year-old wideout enjoyed a nice 3-year career at Ole Miss, recording 2,393 yards and 21 touchdowns. Treadwell's senior season numbers are particularly impressive, as he hauled in 82 receptions for 1,153 yards and eight scores.

Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze had plenty of praise for Treadwell at the Crete, Illinois native's pro day on Monday, according to Collin Brister of the Daily Mississippian.

"If you’re looking for a guy that can just run a straight line fast, that’s not what he is," said Freeze. "If you’re looking for a guy, that when you put on the tape, can use his physical abilities and body to win in one-on-one situations and tight quarters and win 50-50 balls, that’s him."

Considering Treadwell's stock, taking him at #2 would be a reach, and he will likely not make it to #32. However, Treadwell could certainly bolster a slim wide receiver corps in Cleveland.
