RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Cole will need to earn a three-down role in training camp to justify this ranking, but he did well for himself during his 2013 audition, and the Vikings didn't add any noteworthy MLB talent in the draft or free agency. Cole showed significant IDP upside in his four starts last year, posting 42 tackles and a sack. So long as he beats out Jasper Brinkley for the starting MLB role and can hold off fellow youngsters like Gerald Hodges and Michael Mauti, Cole should provide at least LB2 upside in most formats.

2013

Cole is expected to serve as a backup at middle linebacker to the newly acquired Desmond Bishop.

2012

Cole, Minnesota's 2012 seventh-round draft pick, was a Butkus Award semifinalist last season with 108 tackles and 5.5 sacks for N.C. State. He could win a backup role this summer, but it's not clear if he has the speed to eventually win a starting job.
