The Minnesota Vikings have a promising young receiver in the making in fifth-round rookie Stefon Diggs. His athleticism was expected to come in handy right away on special teams, but Diggs could actually become a valuable contributor on offense sooner rather than later.

During Monday's practice, Diggs showed off a little bit of what he brings to the table by beating first-round rookie Trae Waynes with an over the shoulder catch near the right sideline and tapping his feet down inbounds.

Diggs isn't the biggest receiver (6-0, 195 lbs.), but the 21-year-old is on an early trajectory to make an immediate difference both as a return specialist and as a pass-catcher.
