RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Kendricks looks like one of the league's top young LBs after a promising rookie year in which he had 92 tackles (72 solo) while playing 763 defensive snaps, pushing aside a pair of veterans in Chad Greenway and Gerald Hodges to earn his three-down role. Now fully locked in as Minnesota's lead 'backer, Kendricks should breeze past triple-digit tackles, and his combination of speed and instincts makes him a candidate to break out as an interception threat. Kendricks already appears adept as a pass rusher, as his four sacks are a great number for his limited play count.
The 45th overall selection in the 2015 NFL Draft, Kendricks should replace Jasper Brinkley (who departed in free agency) as the starting middle linebacker Minnesota in 2015. Kendricks is an undersized linebacker at 6-foot, 232 pounds, and he's not likely to establish a disruptive presence in the NFL, but Kendricks has the excellent instincts and range necessary to play a sideline-to-sideline role.
