Only 2 Vikings make it to PFN’s Top 100 list

And to implement that forecast — or to win more than 8.5 games — the Vikings will need consistently outstanding performances from several players. According to pro football networka site that ranks leagues top 100 playersOnly two Vikings personalities have achieved the Top 100 accolades.

Danielle Hunter, TJ Hockenson, Kirk Cousins ​​and Harrison Smith ain’t got no love pfnBut these people did it.

Justin Jefferson

Of course, Jefferson couldn’t be left off the list; He is the NFL’s Offensive Player of the Year and has recently received the best rating To anger, pfnDalton Miller ranked Jefferson at no. 8, located between Tyreek Hill (Miami Dolphins, No. 9) and Lane Johnson (Philadelphia Eagles, No. 7).

Miller explained, “Think about Diggs for a second. He’s one of the best wide receivers in the NFL, and the Minnesota Vikings replaced him with a more athletic version of himself.

The Vikings traded Diggs to the Buffalo Bills in 2020 and obtained the needed draft pick a few weeks later to select Jefferson.

“Justin Jefferson is the best receiver in the NFL. He glides down the field, and his ability to manipulate defenders with pacing and stride length while attacking with leverage is unmatched. But Jefferson can also go up and get the ball and doesn’t hesitate to go under middle. He is a three-tier threat that should have an easy task in 2023 with full seasons of help from Jordan Addison and TJ Hockenson offensively,” Miller concluded.

Like last year, Jefferson is expected to chase the 2,000-yard mark via receiving yards in 2023, a feat not accomplished in a single season by any individual.

Christian Darrisow

Last summer, people started tweeting at Vikings training camp that Darrishaw had Trent Williams’ ceiling as an offensive tackle. The smoke felt premature, but then 2023 arrived in Darrisow played like trent williams,

Miller dropped Darrisow to no. He ranks 87th on the list, ahead of Von Miller (Buffalo Bills, No. 88) and behind Za’Darius Smith (Cleveland Browns, No. 86). He wrote, “For Christian Darrisau it was only a matter of time. Penny Sewell and Rashon Slater hogged most of the buzz around the 2021 OL class, but Darrishaw had the same kind of potential coming out of Virginia Tech.

pro football focus graded Darrisow was the second best offensive tackle in the league last year for – you guessed it – Trent Williams,

Miller said, “Darrisaw played well but he is clearly a rookie in 2021. He was excellent at guarding Kirk Cousins ​​a season ago, and he is one of the most effective run blockers in the NFL.”

At this time next year, you will be reading and talking about Darrissau receiving one of the largest contract extensions by a lineman in league history.
