Ben Gedeon – LB

Back in 2017, the Vikings decided to use a fourth-round pick on Ben Gedeon after he had an impressive senior season at Michigan that resulted in him racking up 94 tackles (15 for a loss) and 4.5 sacks.

Since Gedeon has been with Minnesota, however, he’s primarily been a contributor on special teams. In his three years with the Vikings, he’s never been on the field for more than 30 percent of the team’s defensive snaps in a single season.

Gedeon is also coming off a 2019 campaign that was limited to just eight games due to suffering multiple concussions.

During this year’s NFL Draft, Minnesota decided to use one of their three picks in the fourth round to select former Oregon linebacker, Troy Dye. With the addition of Dye and the continued emergence of Eric Wilson, the Vikings might feel like a roster spot would be better spent on someone else in 2020 rather than Gedeon.
