LSU wide receiver Justin Jefferson is headed to Minneapolis, after being taken 20th overall by the Vikings in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Jefferson caught 111 passes for 1540 yards and 18 touchdowns for the national champions last season, leading the Tigers in receptions but finishing second in yards and touchdowns to teammate Ja’Marr Chase.

Jefferson joins a Minnesota offense that will be looking for production at the wide receiver position to replace Stefon Diggs, who Minnesota traded to Buffalo last month.
