Stefon Diggs had a phenomenal rookie season in 2015.
Just days into Minnesota’s training camp, Diggs is already making jaw-dropping plays. During Wednesday’s practice, the former Maryland wide receiver caught a one-handed touchdown pass from quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
Diggs caught the ball in the corner of the end zone while being defended by veteran cornerback Captain Munnerlyn. To get a better idea of Diggs’ highlight reel reception, check out the video below.
Diggs appears to be picking up right where he left a season ago.
During his rookie campaign, Diggs caught 52 passes for 720 yards and four touchdowns. The former Terrapins led the Vikings in receptions, receiving yards, targets (84), 20+ yard receptions (13), and yards-per-game (55.4).
Diggs didn’t appear in Minnesota’s first three games, but really had a breakthrough performance against the Denver Broncos on Oct. 4. The former Good Counsel (Md.) standout caught six passes for 87 yards and was targeted on 10 different occasions.
Most will remember the Denver game due to the fact that Diggs turned cornerback Aqib Talib inside out while running a route.
In his first four NFL games, Diggs went on a torrid stretch in which he recorded 25 receptions for 419 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The highlight of the stretch was against the Kansas City Chiefs on Oct. 18 when the former Terp caught seven passes for 129 yards.
Diggs did cool off towards the end of the regular season, but it was still a very impressive rookie season for a guy that was drafted in the fifth round.
Part of the reason for Diggs going that late was the inconsistent quarterback play during his time in College Park. Obviously, the injury concerns were part of the equation as well.
Diggs definitely put all doubts to rest during the 2015 season. If Wednesday’s drills are any indications, the former Maryland star could be in for another stellar year this fall.
