NFL WR: Minnesota Vikings
Career Highlights: An undrafted wide receiver out of Minnesota State University, Adam Thielen worked his way up from the Minnesota Vikings practice squad in 2013 to leading the team in receptions this past season. An underdog and relative unknown, Adam Thielen became the unsung hero of the Minnesota Vikings in 2016 leading the team with 967 receiving yards, while also adding a career-high 69 catches and five touchdowns. Two of those touchdowns were in an impressive 202-yard performance against the Green Bay Packers on Christmas Eve at Lambeau Field. His 202 yards receiving was just the fifth 200-yard performance in Vikings history. 2017 was another breakout year for Thielen, as he became the Vikings go to wide receiver and totaled 1,276 receiving yards and four touchdowns, while being one of the most productive wide receivers in the NFL. He was rewarded by making his first career Pro Bowl and was also named to the All-Pro second team.
