Sixth Round (Pick No. 206)

Binjimen Victor – WR (Ohio State)

Many fans will solely focus on the loss of Stefon Diggs as a reason for the Vikings to bolster the wide receiver room, but the facts are there’s still a need for more.

With Bisi Johnson and Chad Beebe as the only real incumbents after Adam Thielen, Minnesota will need to take some shots on a class that has been lauded on a historical level for its depth.

One prospect who could be worth the plunge late is Binjimen Victor. As a receiver in a “spread the wealth” offense at Ohio State, his stats weren’t eye-popping as he never exceeded 573 yards in a season.

But it’s his route-running chops that have pro scouts excited and his ability to get open downfield that would work in the Vikings offense. Mix in a 75 percent contested catch rate, and he’s worth a gamble.

The main concern with Victor is his physical stature. At 6-foot-4 and 198 pounds, Victor looks like he’s on stilts running down the field. His inability to create yards after the catch (4.8 per reception) is also an issue.
