Drafting Diggs in 2015
Don’t scream. This would probably be higher if Stefon Diggs was still with the Vikings, but he’s not.
Diggs appeared to become malcontented with Minnesota sometime early in the 2019 season. He went AWOL, returned, got fined, and then began tweeting cryptic stuff. So goes the life of a professional wide receiver.
Prior to that tomfoolery (and after, to an extent), Diggs was a terrific contributor to the Vikings. He’s globally known for snatching a walk-off touchdown against the New Orleans Saints in the 2017 playoffs. But he did a lot more than that for the franchise.
Diggs was arguably the most talented wide receiver the Vikings drafted since Randy Moss, heavy emphasis on the arguably. From the moment he was drafted until the date he was traded to the Buffalo Bills, Diggs accumulated the 13th-most receiving yards in the league with 4,623.
Not bad for a fifth-round selection by Rick Spielman.
