MyCole Pruitt – TE

2020 Stats:

  • 5 catches (8 targets)
  • 59 yards
  • 2 touchdowns

Originally selected by the Vikings in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft, MyCole Pruitt has developed into a very good blocking tight end at the pro level.

During the last three seasons, Pruitt has played a part in the Tennessee Titans emerging as one of the best rushing offenses in the league. When needed, the former Minnesota tight end also has the capability to run routes and make plays with the ball in his hands.

With Kyle Rudolph possibly being a salary cap casualty this offseason, the Vikings bringing in someone like Pruitt could be an option. He would be cheap, he would improve their tight end depth, and he could be utilized basically as a sixth offensive lineman in certain offensive packages.
