The Vikings drafted LSU WR Justin Jefferson in the 1st round of the draft last year and was a force ever since he stepped on the field. Jefferson and QB Kirk Cousins were one of the NFL’s most dynamic quarterback-wide receiver duos last season. But despite that, Jefferson wasn’t surprised with the possibility of having another QB on the team.
Justin Fields was arguably the 2nd best QB on many draft boards. So when he fell out of the top 10 of the draft, it wouldn’t have been a surprise if the Vikings had drafted the Ohio State Alum with the 14th overall pick. However, after he was drafted by the Chicago Bears, the Vikings traded down to No. 23 and drafted OT Christian Darrisaw.
Jefferson said he was not surprised when he heard the rumours that the Vikings were interested in Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields, had he been available to them in the draft.
