Vikings Who Need To Make An Impact In 2014 No. 5 Xavier Rhodes

#5 | Xavier Rhodes Number 5 on the list goes to cornerback Xavier Rhodes.  Rhodes overcame a tough start to his rookie season to finish arguably as the Vikings top cornerback.  Early in the year he was often flagged for pass interference as he was too physical in coverage.  As the season progressed, Rhodes’ technique was much more refined and he started seeing less laundry on the field.  By week 14, Rhodes was playing at a high...

When Floyd slipped all the way to pick 23 in the 2013 NFL Draft, it was looked as an all-out gift for the Vikings and my howls could probably be heard for miles.

Vikings Who Need to Make an Impact in 2014 #8 Kyle Rudolph

#8 | Kyle Rudolph Number 8 on the list goes to tight end Kyle Rudolph. ** Rudolph recently signed a 5 year extension ** Kyle Rudolph has proven he can be a top tight end in the NFL. The only problem has been his quarterback situation since joining the NFL. It is actually amazing the numbers he has put up with average quarterback play (at best). Whether it is Cassel or Bridgewater in 2014 it will already be a big improvement over...
