Minnesota has a very talented wide receiving corps
The Vikings are a team that will be throwing the ball a lot this season, and it’s for good reason, as their wide receiver room is absolutely stacked and that has been proven so far in camp.
Obviously, things start at the top with Justin Jefferson. He has looked better than ever through the first two weeks of camp, and it is apparent he is Kirk Cousins’ favorite and go-to target. He should be in for his best season yet.
Adam Thielen also looks as good as ever. Despite getting up there in years, he still shows great speed, route-running, and of course syrupy mitts.
K.J. Osborn is closing the gap on him, and he is putting together another solid camp, fooling corners with his route-running, showing good speed, and catching just about everything that has been thrown to him.
It’s not surprising that these three look as good as they do, but the guys lower on the depth chart are also showing up.
Bisi Johnson has been heavily involved with the second team, but he has also gotten some first-team looks. He looks 100 percent recovered from his ACL injury, and he has been running sharp routes and showing those reliable hands that we all remember.
Other guys who have stepped up are rookie Jalen Nailor, Trishton Jackson, and Albert Wilson. Nailor has especially been on a tear lately showing off his wheels and making big plays down the field.
The Vikings are going to have some very difficult decisions to make on cut day, and some talented pass-catchers will have to be let go. Hopefully, they can stash a couple on the practice squad, but other teams will surely be looking to see if they can snag one of these talented receivers from the purple.
