Myles Dorn – S

When the Vikings signed Myles Dorn as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina in 2020, some thought he could potentially develop into a starting-caliber safety one day.

Minnesota has had some success with undrafted safeties in the recent past with Anthony Harris and Andrew Sendejo both starting a significant amount of games for the purple and gold during the Mike Zimmer era. But it doesn’t seem like Dorn is going to follow their path.

Harrison Smith and Camryn Bynum are expected to open the upcoming regular season as the Vikings’ starting safeties, and rookie Lewis Cine and Josh Metellus appear to be on track to enter the 2022 campaign as the top reserve safeties.

Minnesota doesn’t really need to carry a fifth safety into the regular season, and Dorn hasn’t really done much this preseason to convince the team otherwise. A spot on the Vikings’ practice squad for the second-straight year seems to be the best-case scenario for this young safety.
