Kendrick Rogers (Texas A&M)

Kendrick Rogers’ durability issues could see him slip in next month’s NFL Draft. If he can alleviate these concerns during the final stages of his evaluation process then he represents good value in the mid-rounds.

The former Texas A&M wide receiver was a hugely influential figure during critical moments for the Aggies. This is down to his incredible wingspan and agility.

Rogers is another big frame wideout that has the scope for real growth at the next level. If he bulks up and adds to his route-running repertoire then there is plenty to suggest he is going to be a big hit in the pros.

The player has good hands and has impressive speed considering his size. Rogers caught 68 balls during his three college seasons on his way to 786 yards and seven touchdowns.

One thing Rogers will need to prove is whether he can become a dependable option on every down. He was not utilized much in normal situations and made the most of his opportunities as the go-to guy when the team needed to come up with important yards.

Having someone of Rogers’ size and scope would be beneficial for the Minnesota Vikings. Adam Thielen is on the slight side for a receiver and is not the most imposing red zone threat. They do have two quality tight ends, but quarterback Kirk Cousins needs someone on the outside he can throw the ball to that is capable of grabbing at height.
