Midwest short on skill players
After Cam Burrows, Laquon Treadwell talent at the skill positions is lacking
Cam Burrows is ready to earn the respect of his new teammates in Columbus. The Trotwood-Madison (Ohio) product is already enrolled at Ohio State and is eager to prove to a group coming off a 12-0 season that he belongs.
