Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson is quickly becoming a household name in the area following a blistering start to his NFL career. The ambitious Vikings wideout already has shown NFL fans how special he is on the field and believes he has competition in this NFL wideout. While Jefferson has entered the league in 2020, he claims to consider this top 3 NFL wideout to be a legitimate threat to his plans.

During a recent appearance on the Ringer NFL Show, the Vikings WR showered high praise on the new Miami Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill. He states, “He’s the Cheetah, and no matter where you put him on the field, he’s always going to be a threat.

While Jefferson seems to be trying to explain the challenges of any NFL cornerback, he is looking to attain the same notoriety.

Hill was electrifying last season and ended up leaving the Kansas City Chiefs to move to South Beach. The deal made the former Chiefs wideout the highest-paid WR in the NFL. He has already been eclipsing some of the notable NFL wideouts. Hill was among the quickest players in the Chiefs’ ranks while recording 9.98 seconds on the clock in a 100m dash.

Can Justin Jefferson become unstoppable like Tyreek Hill in the future?

The dynamic NFL wideouts like Jefferson and Hill are going to cause matchup problems for several NFL franchises. They will try to explore ways of countering them. Jefferson remains far from the finished product while continuing to learn and setting records in the meantime. The potential of the young Vikings WR is scary, considering some of the statistics that got NFL fans excited.

Jefferson already finds himself in an exclusive company in the NFL. He led the league with 3,016 yards, a record haul for a player’s first two seasons in league history. The 2020 first-round selection will be even better in the upcoming season. The Vikings franchise is moving away from a run-first system to a pass-dominant system.

The electrifying WR is receiving a much-needed boost from incoming head coach Kevin O’Connell. He is coming after winning a Super Bowl with the Los Angeles Rams.
