BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Minnesota Vikings drafted former University at Buffalo wide receiver K.J. Osborn with the 176th overall pick on Saturday.

Osborn played at UB for four seasons from 2015-2018. After redshirting as a true freshman, the Michigan native racked up 96 catches for 1,490 yards and 12 touchdowns in the following three seasons.

He joined the Miami Hurricanes this past fall as a graduate transfer and led his new squad in nearly all receiving categories with 50 catches for 547 yards and five touchdowns.

Osborn is the second wide receiver taken by the Vikings; they also chose LSU's Justin Jefferson with the 22nd overall pick on Thursday.
