The Minnesota Vikings have found themselves very thin at wide receiver this year. Who are six prospects they could end up picking in the 2020 NFL Draft?

The Minnesota Vikings have found them in need of a wide receiver. With the loss of Stefon Diggs this offseason in a trade to the Buffalo Bills, there’s a need for a top-tier wide receiver.

As we saw last year when Adam Thielen was hurt, the Vikings receiver room isn’t very deep. There are some solid pieces in place, but not the type that can take over lead duties at wide receiver opposite of Thielen.

Luckily for Minnesota, this year’s draft class of receivers is loaded. From top to bottom, the Vikings should be able to find a guy or two that can step in and contribute next season.

Minnesota ran a lot of two wide receiver sets last year, so they’ll be looking for someone to fill the void Diggs left with his departure. Let’s go ahead and dive into some of this year’s receiving prospects who could end up wearing purple in 2020.
