Tight Ends (4)

  • Kyle Rudolph, Irv Smith Jr., Tyler Conklin, Brandon Dillon

Entering his 10th season with the Vikings, Kyle Rudolph could also be entering his final year in the Twin Cities. So if this going to be Rudolph’s last run in purple, he should make it a good one and help deliver Minnesota it’s first-ever Super Bowl victory.

Irv Smith Jr. is expected to make a big leap this season after a promising rookie campaign in 2019. Thanks to the departure of Stefon Diggs this year, Smith could end up becoming one of Kirk Cousins’ new favorite receiving targets this season.

Tyler Conklin could potentially become a bigger factor for Minnesota this year if the team is looking move on Rudolph in 2021. Conklin just has to prove that he can be reliable as both a pass-catcher and a blocker this season.

Brandon Dillon shocked the world when he made the Vikings final roster last year and he’ll do it again this season.
