3 potential Stefon Diggs replacements for the Vikings in the NFL Draft

Bills, Stefon Diggs

The Minnesota Vikings will be looking to replace the impact Stefon Diggs provided as the team’s second option. The next best method of doing so will be in the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft.

It should not go understated how important Diggs became for the Vikings since being drafted in the 5th round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He ended up totaling 165 receptions, 2,151 receiving yards, and 15 touchdowns in 30 regular season appearances over the last two seasons.

Losing an elite secondary receiver when there was already a need to surround the top two targets with more talent is not easy to overcome. That’s especially the case when considering that Adam Thielen was sidelined for six games last season due to injury.

It appears unlikely that the Vikings will decide to draft a wide receiver in the first round of the draft since they have plenty of other needs. With this year’s receivers class being so deep, they don’t have reach to add a talented prospect that can step in from day one.

With that being said, there are three potential options the Vikings could turn to in the NFL Draft to replace Stefon Diggs.

  1. I like all 3 players….really like the Colorado kid. Would also be in favor of drafting Jefferson from Florida later in the draft. Maybe a 2nd and a 5th on WR would give us good options and depth.

  2. I like Pittman and the other Jefferson in the 2nd round and fourth round trade out of 25 pick up a top five 2nd round and third round selection.

    • No no and no for Laviska aka Treadwell, we could have had Michael Thomas says Vikings fan.

  3. I’d love to see that Devin Duvernay kid from Texas in the 3rd or 4th rd. 5’10.5, 200 with 4.39 speed. He has returner written all over him. I love Mims and Jefferson but I’d be shocked if they picked the receiver in the first round. First, because it’s a deep draft for receivers. Secondly, I think Spielman might be spooked after the Treadwell bust
