Vikings wideout Justin Jefferson is off to a hot start in his NFL career.

He finished 2020 with 1,400 receiving yards and seven touchdown receptions, breaking rookie records in the process.

Dalvin Cook thinks Jefferson could get even better. Cook recently talked about Jefferson on The Herd w/Colin Cowherd (H/T Pro Football Talk).

“It’s squarely about how you carry yourself, what he stands for, who he is,” Cook said of Jefferson, via The Herd. “And you can see right now, him doing the ‘Gritty’ — and that’s something he brought to the game just being who he is. And I think JJ, his ceiling is so high, if he just keeps being who he is and keeps working hard, I think he can be one of the best in the game.”

Cook is coming off a big season himself. The Minnesota running back had 1,557 rushing yards and 16 rushing touchdowns in 2020. The Vikings will need to improve both the defense and special teams, but at least the offensive unit isn’t that far off.
