The Minnesota Vikings wide receiver room is one of the most interesting stories in the league, considering they have a former first round pick from just a few seasons ago waiting in the wings, but players that were drafted much later or not drafted at all have emerged as the star playmakers for the offense. There is no shortage of storylines when it comes to the position and as we get closer to training camp, we take a look at the Vikings' stable of wideouts and the biggest questions they have entering the 2018 campaign with some new faces in the mix.

Is Stefon Diggs worth a huge contract?

Diggs is one of the Vikings waiting on a big payday like some of his fellow teammates, but the question remains whether or not he could be worth that type of money. He has emerged as one of the best playmakers on the roster, but has yet to play an entire season while healthy and has not surpassed 1,000 yards in a campaign, either. That is not entirely on him, but it is still a knock that he has against him heading into negotiations, where he is expecting to command a deal that pays him similar to the five-year, $75 million contract that Jarvis Landry received from the Cleveland Browns.

Diggs still feels like he could be worth that money, especially with the need to surround Kirk Cousins with weapons. He does not turn 25-years-old until November and could still be scratching the surface of what he could be in this league. With a talented quarterback finally in town, his best football could still very much be ahead of him if he sticks around in Minnesota. During Week 2 of last season heading into a game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, we took a look at how he has compared to someone like Antonio Brown in the early part of his career.

Can Adam Thielen continue his strong play?

Thielen has been a godsend for the Vikings organization with his breakout the last few seasons. He took his game to another level in 2017 and was a crutch that Case Keenum relied on almost all season long and someone who was able to make plays when things had to be improvised. Now, he is getting ready to play for his third quarterback and third offensive coordinator in three seasons and even with expectations raised, it will be interesting to see how he lives up to the bar that has been set.

Thielen caught 91 passes for over 1,200 yards in 2017 and did his damage all over the field. He could again be the go-to guy for the offense with Cousins under center and the two have gotten some work in outside of the facility this offseason, along with Diggs. The Pro Bowler has a chance to further entrench himself as one of the league's best pass catchers on a contract that is among the biggest bargains in the league.

Will Laquon Treadwell finally break out?

If not for guys like Diggs and Thielen breaking out, Treadwell would be under the microscope a lot bigger than he currently is. However, this is the most important season of his NFL career and he has to emerge as much more of an option than he has, which is claims can happen with more balls thrown his way. That has been a bit of a problem so far, as he only has 21 receptions in two seasons since being selected in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Head coach Mike Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman said this offseason his biggest hurdle is getting out of his own way and the early returns on that have been positive and he has been one of the team's best performers in offseason practices. We will have to wait and see if he is able to translate that to training camp, the preseason and ultimately regular season football.

Is Kendall Wright an upgrade over Jarius Wright?

The Vikings raised some eyebrows this offseason when they released Jarius Wright, also known as "Mr. Reliable," who had been valuable for the team on third downs and made a lot of big catches even if his production was not all that high. They replaced him with another Wright, however, this one in the form of Kendall (no relation). The former first round pick of the Titans had 59 catches last season in Chicago and should be in line for the No. 3 job behind Diggs and Thielen. On the surface, it looks like an upgrade, but he will have to make some big-time grabs to endear himself to fans like his predecessor did.

Is there someone who could surprise?

Outside of the names that have been mentioned here already, the Vikings have an interesting crop of young players and undrafted rookies that could wind up sneaking onto the roster and making some noise. Stacy Coley is an option heading into his second season, but former CFL star Brandon Zylstra and undrafted free agents Jake Wieneke, Korey Robertson, Chad Beebe and Jeff Badet are all players to keep an eye on during camp as they fight for roster spots. The Vikings kept six wideouts last season, so assuming that Diggs, Thielen, Treadwell, and Wright are safe, that leaves two spots to be battled for.
