Quartney Davis – WR (Texas A&M)


The Vikings drafted two wide receivers this year. As mentioned earlier, they got great value when Justin Jefferson slipped to them at the No. 22 pick.

Minnesota then surprised many with the selection of K.J. Osborn in the fifth round. He’s a bit raw, but he is seen as a guy who could be the team’s primary kick returner as a rookie.

The Vikings also signed a couple of pass-catchers after the draft concluded and the one they got from Texas A&M was an unbelievable value.

Quartney Davis is a player many figured would’ve been drafted fairly early on the third day of the draft. He boasts good size at 6-foot-1 and 200 pounds to go along with his nice wide shoulders and very sticky hands.

Davis likely went undrafted due to a past ACL injury that kept him off the field for two years and the fact that he lacks elite speed. There were also thoughts that being the primary receiver for the Aggies, he should’ve been more productive than he was.

Despite his knocks, Davis is a much more polished and experienced wide receiver than Osborn. He excels working out of the slot and if the Vikings end up keeping six receivers he’s almost a lock to make the team.
