Vikings’ Stefon Diggs having a big day in Detroit

AP

Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs is a little-known rookie fifth-round draft pick. But he won’t be little-known for long.

Diggs, playing in just the third game of his career, has five catches for 92 yards and a sensational diving touchdown grab today in Detroit, and thanks largely to Diggs the Vikings have a 22-17 third-quarter lead.

Diggs didn’t even play in the first three games of the season, but he caught six passes for 87 yards in his first game, seven passes for 129 yards in his second and is now having another great game in his third.

The Lions’ defense has bottled up Adrian Peterson today, but they can’t contain Diggs. Until they do, they’re going to be in trouble. And Diggs is hard to stop.

  1. Diggs is little known only to casuals. Guy was a top college recruit and was a beast at Maryland. in fact most mock drafts had him in the first round his last season until he got hurt.

  2. Diggs lasted until the fifth round because yes, he had great college games but he wasn’t completely lighting it up every Saturday like some people thought he would coming out of high school. Does not mean he is not a great player, though.

  3. Hey GB Choker fans…..

    Kendricks looks pretty good, doesn’t he?

    And to think you could have had him in the draft….

    But you drafted a backup qb instead.

    Nice choice Ted.

    Really.

    Better run the breathalyzer on yourself. The Packers picked the “backup qb” 3 rounds and 102 picks AFTER the queens drafted Kendricks. You might as well compare draft picks from 2 different years while you’re at it. And if you want to play that game, minny passed on Aaron Rodgers TWICE.

  5. It is looking more and more each week that Diggs might turn out to be a phenomenal player which is good news in Green Bay because it will give the cheeseheads another player they can hate on.

  6. He was the #1 WR prospect in the nation coming out of HS. He was offered scholarships to just about every football school in the country, but he decided to go to Maryland to stay close to home. He was taught by Keenan McCardell at Maryland. He had a couple injuries that limited his playing time in college. I think the injuries and his Anthony Carter-esque physique caused concern during the draft. If the kid can stay healthy, it looks like he’s got a very bright future ahead of him.

  7. Diggs is on the small side and had some injury concerns coming out of college. That is why he dropped.If you watch college football then you are aware of his skills.
