2013

Hodges isn't particularly well known as a fourth-round pick from Penn State, but Minnesota's lack of talent at linebacker gives Hodges a great chance to start and earn a three-down role as a rookie. If this should occur, it wouldn't simply be by default. Hodges was a good player at Penn State with standout athleticism to the point that the team experimented with him as a punt returner at one point. Although he's rangy, Hodges still makes an impact at the point of attack, as he had 18.5 tackles for loss the last two years. With a little luck, Hodges might be Minnesota's second-leading tackler behind Greenway.
