Stefon Diggs’ brother thinks it will be easy to cover him in the NFL
By Adam Patrick
Trevon Diggs, the brother of the current Minnesota Vikings wide receiver, is one of the top cornerback prospects available during this year’s NFL Draft.
Stefon Diggs is a competitive guy. Diggs has proven a lot of people wrong during his tenure with the Minnesota Vikings and at just 26-years-old, the best could still be ahead for the talented receiver.
Starting in 2020, Diggs could be going up against a very familiar face as his brother, Trevon, is one of the top corners available in this year’s NFL Draft pool.
Trevon has been participating in the events at this week’s NFL Scouting Combine and on Friday, he was asked about the possibility of going up against his brother at the pro level. The younger Diggs didn’t hold back with his answer.
"“It would be easy.”"
After beginning his college career at Alabama as a receiver in 2016, Trevon spent the last three seasons at the school as a cornerback. His elite athletic abilities allowed him to develop into one of the best cover guys in the country and he could be one of the first corners drafted in April.
The younger Diggs has been connected to Minnesota by a number of draft analysts during the last few months given the team’s need for a new top cornerback and the fact that his brother is already on their roster.
Apparently, the Vikings’ interest in him as actually real as they are one of the teams who have met with the young corner during this week’s Combine.
In addition to his skills on the defensive side of the ball, Trevon is a very talented returner as well. He returned both punts and kicks during his time at Alabama and this a potential need that Minnesota will be looking to fill this offseason as well.
Whether the time comes for these brothers to match up against each other during practice every week as teammates or in an actual game as opponents, there is no question that these battles will be incredibly fun to watch.
