Bleacher Report believes undrafted free agent wide receiver Quartney Davis of the Minnesota Vikings will be an exciting player to watch and rightfully so.
When a team takes a chance on an undrafted free agent, one can only hope they find a diamond in the rough. There are many stories in the NFL of UDFAs that end up becoming bonafide stars for the team that saw something in them from the start, Hopefully, the Minnesota Vikings can join that list when it comes to wide receiver Quartney Davis.
In just two seasons at Texas A&M, Davis totaled 1,201 receiving yards, 99 receptions, 11 touchdowns, and averaged 12.1 yards per catch. Davis is all about making a big play when his team needs it most as this is an area he can contribute on when it comes to the Vikings’ offense. At 6-1 and 201lbs., Davis was worth investing in as the Vikings went into a bidding war just to acquire his services.
Even though he has a small sample size from his collegiate career, Davis has solid speed and has the capability to keep those chains moving. As always with any UDFA, it’s going to be hard for him to make the final roster of the Vikings once training camp is in the books but the potential is undoubtedly there.

In an article written by Kristopher Knox of Bleacher Report, he picked every team’s most exciting UDFA and selected Davis for the Vikings. It’s a great choice as he could truly be a nice surprise in training camp and be fun to watch in preseason action.
Knox believes that Davis can find a good role on the Vikings’ offense by being a middle-of-the-field receiving option to take the top off of opposing defenses. The Vikings’ offense was a strength of the team last season as adding more talent with this skill set can only help the cause.
Davis will more than likely be an exciting player to watch as he could thrive in the slot role if he makes the final roster. He could be used in plays that take shots downfield as his ability to quickly run down the field to grab those 50/50 balls in a one-on-one situation is an area he thrives in.
Overall, Davis could add a nice dimension on the Vikings’ offense as they do their best to make up for not having Stefon Diggs around anymore. It won’t be easy but perhaps spreading the love across multiple wide receivers this upcoming season could be just as productive if not more successful if this group develops into a consistently high-quality receiving group.
