Justin Jefferson – WR

Draft Year: 2020

Draft Selection: Pick No. 22 (First Round)

Justin Jefferson has only been in the NFL for two seasons, but he’s already accomplished so much to land at the No. 15 spot on this list. There’s also a very good chance that within a few years, he’ll rank even higher.

Jefferson pretty much landed in the lap of Minnesota during the 2022 NFL Draft when the Philadelphia Eagles made the hilariously foolish decision to select former TCU wide receiver Jalen Reagor.

Since then, Reagor has been a borderline bust, and Jefferson is arguably the best wide receiver in the entire NFL.

In his first season with the Vikings, Jefferson surpassed Randy Moss and set a new record for receiving yards by a rookie in franchise history. Then he followed up that 2020 performance by coming out in 2021 and accumulating more than 100 catches 1,600 receiving yards.

The sky is definitely the limit for Jefferson, and after just two seasons, he’s already on pace to be one of the greatest players to ever put on a Vikings jersey.
