Taking a page out of the NFL’s media playbook, we’re exploring the Minnesota Vikings’ roster to identify players who will “Make the Leap” in 2016. Since 2014, five Vikings have appeared on the website’s annual list, from quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to wide receiver/kick returner Cordarrelle Patterson.
For a team with budding talent at nearly every position, the options are endless. Some players, like Anthony Barr, are already considered some of the best at their respective positions. Others, like Stefon Diggs, have a chance to enter the conversation this season.
The Vikings Territory team made some surprising choices in this week’s VT QOTW, from singling out a certain third-year quarterback to highlighting a few under-the-radar names. After the jump, find out who we chose, and be sure to share your own selections in the comments and poll at the end of the post!
