The Minnesota Vikings went all in on former LSU Tigers star wide receiver Justin Jefferson in this year's NFL Draft after selecting him with their first and the No. 22 overall pick.

And just exactly as you'd want to see from the incoming rookie talent if you're a Vikings fan, it appears Jefferson is itching to go all in on the Vikings organization, too.

The Vikings opened their training facility in Eagan, Minnesota, earlier this week. However, the organization still has not reportedly open the doors to players and coaches just yet.

For a 20-year-old athlete like Jefferson, who hauled in 111 receptions for 1,540 yards and 18 touchdowns on the way to a College Football Playoff National Championship title for the Tigers last season, it seems far from unreasonable to expect a little excitement for things to get rolling in his new NFL home.

Jefferson should be in for a bountiful rookie campaign once he's finally allowed to get started as well, as he's currently facing a 2020 NFL regular-season receiving yardage over/under of 725.5 and 5.5 TDs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
