The Vikings return some essential wide receivers from 2020.
Extensive receiver Justin Jefferson is coming off a stellar rookie year. Fellow wideout Adam Thielen, who was a terrific crimson zone concentrate on in 2020, is also nonetheless beneath deal. The team even re-signed Chad Beebe.
But Minnesota could use a much better huge receiver a few, especially if the Vikings want to improve their offense and make the most of the passing match additional frequently. A excellent way to locate a definitive huge receiver 3 is by means of the NFL draft.
Could Auburn WR Anthony Schwartz be the answer? In accordance to Draft Network’s Justin Melo, Schwartz has fulfilled with the Vikings. Though, to be reasonable, the Auburn wideout has fulfilled with a lot of other NFL groups, for every Melo.
Nonetheless, Schwartz could nonetheless be a good choice for Minnesota. Schwartz ran a 4.26 in the 40-garden sprint at Auburn’s professional day, so he could increase some more velocity to the slot placement. He’s also 6-toes, which does not make him a massive-bodied wide receiver, but doesn’t make him small, either.
Schwartz could go everywhere in the draft, but mock drafts have him normally going in rounds 3-5. If Minnesota finds itself however searching for a capable wide receiver at that stage and Schwartz is continue to obtainable, I consider he’d be great choice.
