Nailor was selected in the 6th round by the Vikings after 4 strong years in east Lansing. Nailor’s senior season was his strongest, seeing the talented WR haul in 37 receptions for 695 yards and 6 touchdowns. He totaled 12 touchdowns across his Michigan State career.
He had just 2 receptions for 28 yards heading into this week’s game against the Packers.
