RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Rudolph was a touchdown specialist last year, tallying nine scores despite recording only 53 catches, thanks to increased work in the red zone - his 17 targets there were second among tight ends. Rudolph is an ideal red-zone weapon as his 6-6, 260-pound frame allows him to get the ball in places opposing defenders can't reach. Rudolph is also considered a good blocker for the running attack, displaying the ability to open up holes or seal the edge when necessary. Other than the scores, however, the Rudolph-Christian Ponder connection was lackluster – Rudolph's yards per target fell to a paltry 5.3. And while Rudolph was targeted a healthy 93 times, he caught fewer than 57 percent of the passes that came his way, accounting for only 493 yards, 25th among tight ends.

2012

Rudolph had a decent rookie season as he saw his role in the offense grow in the second half. The 6-6, 260-pound tight end caught all three of his touchdowns in the final six games, showing improved chemistry with Christian Ponder. While Rudolph only had 39 targets, he showed enough receiving skills to have a much larger role this season with Visanthe Schianco gone via free agency. Unfortunately, the Vikings signed John Carlson to replace him. Carlson, though, is coming off a season-long shoulder injury, and the Vikings run a lot of two tight-end sets anyway. Look for Rudolph to win the starting job and be the bigger factor in the Vikings’ passing game.

2011

Rudolph was the first tight end drafted in 2011, but he begins the season as the second tight end on the depth chart with the opportunity to learn the nuances of the game from veteran Visanthe Shiancoe. Big and physical at 6-6, 260, the Notre Dame standout still needs to improve his blocking skills, which might be his weakest attribute. He has good speed for his size and will continue to develop strength as a 21-year-old. Coaches have raved about his “coachability” and with his physical tools, Rudolph has the most long-term upside of any rookie tight end. A hamstring injury that had nagged him during the early part of the Notre Dame season shut him down completely for the last six games, but isn't expected to be a problem when training camp starts.
