Vikings 53-man roster projection

Wide receivers (6)

  • Justin Jefferson
  • K.J. Osborn
  • Jordan Addison
  • Jalen Nailor
  • Jalen Reagor
  • N’Keal Harry

This is one of the toughest units to predict. Although Justin Jefferson would likely be the number one reciever on any team's depth chart, the spots under him could be in any order and some of the individuals could be interchangeable for the time being.

Either K.J. Osborn or Jordan Addison will be starting opposite Justin Jefferson this season. Osborn would be the safer option with his experience but Addison has been impressive in camp and made a couple of nice grabs on Thursday night.

Jalen Nailor has a very solid opportunity to be the team's No. 4 on the depth chart. The team seems to really like him a lot and he has shown flashes of potential in the past, giving him an edge over some of the other pass catchers.

His contract makes Jalen Reagor a safe bet to make the roster while the physical size of N'Keal Harry makes him an appealing option for the roster. Brandon Powell will need to impress in the remaining preseason games at receiver or punt return if he wants to make the 53.
