Minnesota Vikings: Five potential late-round receiver targets
By Dan Zinski
The Minnesota Vikings could have some interesting options if they elect to pick a receiver in the late rounds of the draft.
Many many thousands of words have been expended on this blog and others discussing the Vikings’ options if they intend drafting a wide receiver in the first round. I thought that, for a change, I would get away from the Josh Doctson/Laquon Treadwell/Corey Coleman talk and instead focus on some lesser-known players who could be on the Vikings’ radar as late-round picks or perhaps undrafted free agents.
I picked out five guys who for me have potential value as end-of-the-draft prospects or UDFA pick-ups. Basically, we’re talking about players who do one or two things well but also have lots of question marks. Will any of these players ever turn out to be starters in the NFL? Probably not. But then again you never know. There could be a sleeper out there just waiting for Rick Spielman to find him.
A couple of these players will already be somewhat familiar to fans who either follow the Golden Gophers (hint hint) and/or follow the Vikings. So let’s take a deep dive into the draft field and check out some potential late-round options for the Vikings at wide receiver.
