2015 NFL Draft: BYU WR Jordan Leslie signs UDFA deal with the Minnesota Vikings

Former BYU WR Jordan Leslie has signed with the MinnesotaVikings as an undrafted free agent.

Leslie caught 55 passes for 779 yards and six touchdowns while battling injury through his one season at BYU. Prior to joining the Cougars, Leslie spent three seasons at UTEP recording 125 receptions, 2015 receiving yards, and 15 receiving yards with the Miners.

Leslie is one of the more underrated players in this year's class and could end up being a steal this late in the draft. There isn't much he doesn't do well on the football field at his position. He runs solid routes, he's has good quick hands, he blocks well downfield, and he has a good catch radius.

Athletically, Leslie has great speed for a player who is 6-2. His measurables from Pro Day stack up very well against other wide receivers in this year's draft class. It's really a bit of head scratcher that Leslie wasn't valued higher than he was, but now it will be up to him to prove his value to the Vikings and make all the other teams regret passing up on him.

Leslie has the drive, work ethic, and competitiveness to succeed at the next level.

I would be very surprised if Leslie doesn't have a successful career in the NFL.
