The Rookie Scouting Portfolio characterizes Jefferson as one of the most intuitive receivers in this rich draft class. Look for Jefferson to join Adam Thielen in the starting lineup this year and prove himself a productive route runner with versatility short and deep. - Matt Waldman

Summary

Out with Stefon Diggs and in with Justin Jefferson as the Vikings took no time in filling the Diggs role. Jefferson was the 22nd overall pick in the NFL Draft and seemed to fall right into the Vikings lap as the Eagles passed on him for Jalen Reagor one pick in front of him. Jefferson will be immediately put into the offense for the Vikings and could be the second leading pass catcher behind Adam Thielen in his rookie season. Jefferson skill set is based off of solid route-running and contested-catch abilities. He will look to be another weapon in the Vikings offense for quarterback Kirk Cousins. (June 1)
