Former Ole Miss wide receiver Laquon Treadwell is easily the best at his positions in this year’s NFL Draft class. He comes out of the SEC, so he has played against some of the country’s best defensive backs.
On Thursday, he spoke with reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. One of the reporters asked him who the best cornerback he played against during his career was.
He answered with a Florida Gator, but it wasn’t Vernon Hargreaves, who is projected to be a top ten pick this year as well. It was current Gator Jalen Tabor.
Treadwell: "I faced a lot of good CB's. Cyrus Jones, the Florida guy. Not Hargreaves but the younger guy." #NFLCombine

The rising junior is one of the best corners in the SEC and in 2015, he recorded four interception, two of which he returned for touchdowns. Don’t be surprised if Tabor is considered a top prospect for the 2017 NFL Draft.
I guess you could easily call Florida “D.B.U.”
