Nailor, nicknamed Speedy, led the Big Ten in yards per reception in 2020, and finished second in 2021.
Nailor started nine games in 2021 while missing four with a hand injury, ranked second on the team with receptions (37), receiving yards (695) and touchdown catches (6) and earned honorable mention All-Big Ten honors.
He returned from the injury to catch six passes for 108 yards in a Peach Bowl win over Pittsburgh.
Nailor joins quarterback Kirk Cousins, as well as defensive end Kenny Willekes, as former Michigan State Spartans on the Vikings. Nailor has been in touch with both since being drafted.
