Xavier Rhodes – CB
Throughout the team’s recent history, pass defense has certainly not been a strength of the Vikings. But with players like Rhodes on their roster, Minnesota is now one of the best in the NFL when it comes to defending the pass.
During each year of Rhodes’ career with the Vikings, he has been able to continuously take his play to the next level. In 2017, his performance during the season resulted in him being selected as a First-Team All-Pro for the very first time.
If his first five years with Minnesota have shown anything, Rhodes may be even better in 2018. The rest of the league should be pretty frightened if this turns out to be the case.
