Welcome to the Vikings, Laquon Treadwell: Social Media Reaction

The Vikings used their No. 23 slot in Round 1 of the 2016 NFL Draft to bring Ole Miss wide receiver Laquon Treadwell to Minnesota.

A number of analysts projected Treadwell to go higher than he did, and both Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman and Mike Zimmer said they were incredibly pleased with landing the 20-year-old receiver. Judging by social media reactions, Spielman and Zimmer aren't the only ones excited to see Treadwell suit up for the Vikings in 2016.

Here are some of our favorite Twitter reactions from day one of the draft, starting with Treadwell himself:

It's a blessing to be apart of the Vikings organization, couldn't be more excited.
