The NFL Combine is a place that breaks down college rivalries in the interest of grading future prospects' abilities on a level playing field. Gone are such quaint divisions created by the Egg Bowl and trips to Memphis for former Ole Miss wide receiver Laquon Treadwell, who's working out this weekend opposite a number of quarterbacks in the 2016 draft.
Here's the big man catching a pass from former Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch:

Those are two very tall men playing football with, instead of against, one another.
Here too is Laquon hauling in an over-the-shoulder sideline grab from none other than former Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott:

Where once they were enemies in college, so now they must rely on one another to improve their respective draft stocks. There's beauty in that reciprocity, just as there's beauty in watching Laquon Treadwell catch bombs in full stride. Even if they're launched by Dak.
