Rudolph Makes 2011 NFP All-Rookie Team

Posted by Mike Wobschall on January 4, 2012 – 11:03 am

The Vikings selected Kyle Rudolph in the 2nd round of last April’s draft in a move that was a bit of a surprise. It wasn’t a surprise that Rudolph went that high in the draft (some thought he could’ve gone earlier), it was a surprise because TE wasn’t considered a position of need for the Vikings.

Whether you’d consider TE a position of need for the Vikings or not, though, it’s become clear in Minnesota that Rudolph very well could have a significant place in the offense. He also has a significant place among 2011′s rookie class because the National Football Post named him to their 2011 All-Rookie team.

Greg Gabriel of the NFP says “Rudolph has the bulk, size and power to play as an inline tight end and the speed and finesse to be a move type.”

Once Rudolph arrived at training camp and found his way onto the field, he consistently made highlight-caliber catches, often times in traffic and over defenders. While it would’ve been nice to see him involved more often earlier in the season, Rudolph did finish the season well and his numbers were obviously good enough to earn him some post-season recognition. He had 39 receptions and 3 TDs on the season.

    Hmmmm….He didn’t seem to be utilised all that much, but then again, maybe most rookies weren’t used much this year.

    His going to be a pro bowl tight end for years to come.

    Thats all cool and things i know rudolph is a amazing tight end but what about years to come? Shiancoe will be gone and we don’t really need him we need RECIEVERS, OFFENSIVE LINEMEN, AND DEFENSIVE BACKS! I would like to come on here and see that the vikings have made some moves to improve our team. Im sure a lot of people would like to see that…. GO VIKES!!!!

    We need an offensive line ASAP. Kalil will be a strong pick. If he gets taken then we have the O-Lineman from Stanford. First 2 Picks need to address the O-Line. We need another star caliber Receiver in the free agency this offseason. The secondary needs to be addressed soon too.. With the exception of Raymond, Griffin, and Cook if he will ever be back.. Everybody needs to be out.. Asher Allen would be an alright backup but even Winfield is too old and needs to be taken off. E.J. Henderson should not be resigned, we need a better MLB. What’s wrong with the D-Line?? J.Allen, K. Williams, E. Griffin, and B. Robinson are all fine D-Lineman.. Unless you can get someone on Williams and Allen’s caliber it’s not worth a pickup.

    I agree Jordan that EJ is not the MLB of old and either needs to go to Special Teams or be traded for draft picks. The D really missed Leber, I think it was a mistake to let him go. I think Greenway should Move to MLB and E. Griffen should be the strong side. Brinkley and Henderson (Erin or EJ) can compete for weakside. Griffen is faster then both of them and bigger and stronger. He would be a beast as a LB. He was a gunner in Special teams for pete’s sake.

    Rudolff will make Growkoski look average once they really start utilizing him and taking advantage of his size and speed, and catching abilities. He is a beast and has some of the softest hands I have seen in the tightend world. I have never seen Witten or Gonzales make those type of catches. He is going to kill D’s.

    Way to spin the positive Wobschall. A part of the article about the TEs that Wobby strategically left out was “Two stood out from an average class”.

    I think Rudolph could have stood out a lot more, but he was used far too sparingly. He has the skills, but the coaches were too timid to utilize them. This is most likely because of Shiancoe (I think I got it right this time) and Kleinsasser’s veteran statuses. I’ll be looking for a much bigger breakout from Rudolph next year, as the vets are unlikely to return.

    I still think we need to address CB and possibly WR before the OL, I can’t remember how many times I saw the Vikes get torched on defense. This is the off season the Vikes need to go crazy with free agency signings and get a solid draft class signed.
    To think again about it, a CB, WR, and OL is actually needed equally, and I would feel safe to try and see what OL are out in FA, but the Vikes should use their 2nd round pick to pick up an OL at least. Idk, maybe I don’t know what I’m talking about, and I’ve lost track of what I was going to say, so w/e, can’t wait for the draft xD

    28th most sacks allowed = MINNESOTA VIKINGS = 3-13 = 28th in passing = 18th in total offense = NO PLAYOFFS

    Why dont the Vikings find a pass blocking specialist for Phil Loadholt. I understand we cant switch tackles constantly.

    What Im suggesting is start the pass block specialist untill we get a 10 point lead and then play ” The Load ” to pound Peterson.

    I just had a random thought. Players / WRs are judged by their 40 yard dash time and a time of 4.3 is one of the best times. thats 4.3 seconds to run a straight 40 yards.

    That means a WR needs 4.3 seconds to get “deep” if he isnt touched. So my question is how many times has our QB had 4 seconds to stand in the pocket ?

    Again thats just random thought but it seems pass protection is a bigger issue right now than WRs. Percy could be a deep threat if we had time to run deep routes

Plenty of time to do so, but sooner would be better!! Rebuild the foundation of this team, which is your offense and defensive lines!! If you look at those teams that made it to the NFC Championship games, they all had great offensive and defensive lines!! Let’s go “old school” and back to the days of the great Viking teams of the “70′s and build an outdoor stadium and build a rock solid defense, so we can have an identity to this team, something we haven’t had in a long time!!!!!!!!!

    Camarillo has a very solid will to do what it takes for the team– not just on catching and he has made some big catches– but remember when he chased down that interception last year and saved the TD at like the one yard line? There was even a punt return where he was very elusive and went about 50 yards- not sure if it was brought back for a penalty. Then when he has acted as defender and stopped interceptions — just in general a very good solid team player–

He wasn’t able to do everything he wanted the years prior in which he was involved in personnel, just like recently in MN he has had to deal with other people and red tape, now its his turn to show if he is able to fully get this team together over the next 2-3 years.

    Cris Cook came into his own this year by not letting good WR get the deep ball, but that said he was just as sloppy as the rest of the secondary in the intermediate routes. and letting other teams extend their time on the field. Sloppy tackling too esp in the intermediate yardage. You prevent the long shots but keep giving first downs that eventually leads to touchdowns.

    You all are too easily to let poor decisions by the coaching staff and personel get past just because they promoted one to GM.

I would rather see them gone, but we will all see how this plays out. I am not throwing either any support until I see how this off season goes. It really bugs me how Frazier so easily praised Asher Allen. The guy is spotty at best and bad most of the time. They need to step and say hey we made mistakes with the OLine and didn’t get better onthe Defesive secondary. they accept responsibility of the outcome but not the whys. Why was our OL so bad? Why has our secondary been bad for so many years? Why not have the ability to get down field with the ball to keep other teams defenses honest? These questions were mostly avoided all year no blame fell on anyone. One exception Cedrick Griffen got benched as he wasn’t aggressive enough. Should have benched the entire defensive back field except they had no one to replace.

    Yeah but now Frazier doesn’t matter, if Spielman wants a 3-4, Frazier will put up with a 3-4, clearly the two were split, Frazier thought we could somehow win now with this terrible team and wanted McJoke to start while clearly Spielman was trying to rebuild, and Allen coming off a defensive MVP type year I think will still get us at least a first round if not more for a team looking to win now that just needs a great pass rusher since he probably only has 2-3 real good years left. And Frazier is too committed to the guys who was on his defense when he was DC which is why he pretends c. griffen and A. allen are good, but now with someone else making personnel decisions without needing him we will see a lot of changes I think for the better

It will take us that long just to be relevant again and by then he will be gone. Or should we get a few more good young starter’s to help us rebuild

    Current favorite Viking for me would be, Percy Harvin on offense and on defense, I really like A. Winfield!! Percy is just getting started and there’s nothing but greatness written all over him, we just need to sign him to a long term deal!! Do the right thing Mr. Spielman!! A.Winfield on the other hand is at the end of his career, but could finish it on a high note if they moved him to FS!! Let him roam around like he did in the Philly game in 2010, where he had 2-3 sacks on M. Vick!! When he first came to us he was a really good corner, now age is catching up to him and it’s time to move him to FS!! Best tackler on the team!!

    Here are some calculations on “deep threats.”

    Average QB can throw 70-80 yards. Average speed of throw is 50mph, which is 24 yards/second. To throw a ball 50 yards downfield takes a QB 2 seconds from when the ball leaves his hand, 70 yards takes 3 seconds. Add in the drop back, setting feet, and winding up.

    A fast WR can run the 40 in 4.3-4.4 seconds. To get 50 yards downfield takes about 6 seconds (without a 5-yard chuck). 70 yards takes 7-8 seconds.

    So, a QB needs 4 seconds of protection to connect on a 50-yard pass, 5-6 seconds for a 70-yard pass.

    So NOW what’s more important – a “deep threat” WR, or a competent O-line???

    NVF … Not sure where you got that but it sounds right and its pretty much what i was thinking. plus add in the fact a WR makes 1-2 moves and most times gets a little jam to slow him down. Its not a straight sprint for a deep ball so like you hinted it takes a little longer to get “deep”

    Im with you we need OL much more than a WR. Im not saying a WR wouldnt help but Percy is on the faster side of fast. Just need to give the QB 4-5 secs to make the throw

    Those numbers are based on NFL QB averages, but the math works out any way you slice it. Actually, you should add another half to a full second of protection needed, because the 40 times are out of pads.

    I agree with Northwood. We have some fast receivers and I think Harvin is not only fast but has sure hands like CC had. Excellent choice in the slot. I know not everyone is 100% behind the Ponder choice, but I think if he’s given time in the pocket, is accurate enough to pick apart some defenses. Missing piece is decent OL. AP’s yardage has been good but half the time the defense is in our backfield on runnings plays as well. AP is the modern day Barry Sanders. He could have run forever with a good OL. Next area is DBs. We have sucked back their forever. Year in and out the most glaring weakness of the Vikes. Really address these two areas and we improve greatly in one season.

  130. By NorthwoodsVikesFan on Jan 5, 2012 | Reply

    The other point to make is we lost 9 games by a TD or less this season.

    I think most people will agree the secondary gave up many more points than the D-line.

    If our secondary had stopped each team from scoring just one additional TD per game, we end the season at 12-4. TWELVE – FOUR!!!!!

    Yeah, there were pick-6s, and yeah, there were missed scoring opportunities by our offense, but our secondary gave up a LOT of TDs through the air.

    Just one less TD per game given up by our secondary – 12-4. Playoffs. Even with a porous O-line that couldn’t give our QB time to throw.

    61Vikings your post about getting good people on the OL and DLines reminded me of what is really important. You do not hear it on TV, but the linemen have to be good if we expect to have a championship qualiber team. No doubt.

    But those areas are actually strong compared to the OL and DB.

    @ Northwoods What is the average height and high jump ability of those players mentioned? Harvin is a great WR but too short to be your protypical outside WR. We need a TO/Moss type receiver to keep the defense away from the line. It will have the benefit of helping the OL protect. I counted many times how many were in the box against us and most of the time it was 8 and sometimes 9 guys in the box. Defenses do this to a “Run” first offense. It’s time to open that up. It was a mistake by Frazier to build the team around a single player. It makes the defense too easy against it.

    Good points Mr. Jones, but Donovan was having significant trouble getting the ball to reach even his short-distance targets without the assistance of a bounce or two.

    @ Fred I agree with you Fred our OL was so bad McNabb wasn’t able to step into his throws, so you get a lot of bad p@sses. Farve had a heck of time last year also. The OL is an important part. You can get healthy at OL though with lower round draft picks. You have to have scouts good enough to find those rough diamonds.

    There is no reason Percy Harvin can’t catch the Bomb, except that our QBs do not have the time to whip it.

    The OL causes most of our offensive problems. They are collectively 5/11ths of the offense. EVERYONE must do his job for the Vikings to win.

    Mike B, there were all too many times when only 3 or 4 got to the QB. Again, if we don’t fix the O-line first, I don’t care if Yao Ming lines up at WR – the ball will never get there.

    Greg Jennings, Santana Moss, Steve Smith, DeSean Jackson, Wes Welker, Laveranues Coles, Percy Harvin. All under 6′.

    Joe Webb 6’4″, Michael Jenkins 6’4″, Manny A, Devin A, and Greg C all 6’2″.

    We scored enough points to win games if our secondary had performed. We would have scored more points if our O-line had performed. Either way, we could have been 12-4.

    Griffen seems very high strung — he might actually help out the line– maybe help Allen. But I am not the coach for a reason– I follow the game, but I am not a fanatic. I enjoy it but I do not analyze it like some bloggers. Spence, you best ask someone who knows more about the game. Like Mike Wobbs. Or Parody.

    @Titus,

    You know I read your posts almost over anyone else’s.

    I did not contradict myself. Read some of my other posts dating back to 2010.

    We are the 12th man, and as such MUST work together to get the word out.
    And as you have said, the words mostly go only between ourselves.

    So, NO I did not contradict myself.

    Besides, if I wanted to change arguments I have the FREEDOM to do it.

    Further more if you had thought about it a little you would have come to the same conclusion.

    Sometimes I think you just want to fight against me!!!

    It is possible for Spielman to obtain some good free agent d-backs like we did in 2000 with Brian Russell.

    Russell spent 2000 on the practice squad, and then started for the team for a few years after that at Safety. He had 9 interceptions in 2003.

    Some of the Linemen like Love, and Fusco could contribute in 2012.

    Marcus Sherels was used occasionally as a nickel back, but saw very little duty overall at D-Back. This could be a mistake, or maybe he will continue to work hard as Russell did back in 2000.

    Spielman has the responsibility to spend a lot of money on OLs and DBs this year. We MUST make sure he remembers that.

    I am not even sure whether he agrees with the need for OLs and DBs. You would think he would have mentioned it at least ONCE!!!

    From what I have heard from him in pressers, and interviews, his mind is not on
    Offensive Linemen and Defensive Backs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Frederick Jones, yes, sometimes we as bloggers post too quickly and then think later maybe we overreacted or didn’t think our reaction through– I am guilty as anyone. But seriously, you wanted a GM to tell everyone how it is going to get done. If the fans start chanting who to draft and who to hire and fire, and Spielman reacts to them, well, then your reasoning for a GM is void and gone. Anyway, sometimes it is fun to heat up the blog– we all do it.

    We still haven’t heard about the coaches evaluations. Is Frazier going to actually fire coaches or tell them they are free to look elsewhere while he is looking for their replacement. What kind of manager is that? That’s exactly what he did last year with the offensive coaching positions. Pretty weak is what I call it. It’s fine to pay people until they find another place, but it should be known that they are out.

  202. By Mike B. on Jan 6, 2012 | Reply

    Raheem sounds like a good fit for Frazier. He’s a 4-3 cover 2 guy and it a place where Frazier is comfortable. I wouldn’t expect the team to change the defensive scheme especially how their top Defensive player feels about going 3-4. I don’t buy into trading vested vets for picks and don’t feel you get equal value for them.

  203. By Mike B. on Jan 6, 2012 | Reply

    For those hoping that Spielman is going to change how the vikings are going to plan games aren’t listening to the pressers. Spielman doesn’t have control over game day operation. The mean the Head Coach will determine how the players Spielman gets will play on game day. The Head Coach has control of who the other coaches are and not Spielman. Looks like all we got was a GM that is Head of personel, so the GM can control what players come in and out of the team. He has no power beyond that other than contributing to the HC decisions.

    @ Spence
    You’ll never get a straight answer out of TT!!! I think the Vikes should move E.Griffen to LB and make him a pass rushing specialist!! I’ve never seen a defensive end on special teams move as fast as that guy!! When healthy, I think A.Winfield is the second best player on this defense!!! He’s not the CB he used to be, but he’s a great tackler and seems to make some big plays when it counts!! When you get up there in age, it’s up to the player and the coaching staff to get together and find the best place for that player on the defnse!! I think he should be moved to FS, let him roam the field like the Steelers use Troy Palamalua!!! He’s still a great player, let him finish his career on a high note!!!

    I thought about the Raheem morris interview and I think what we as fans can take from it is Coach Frazier despite defending his players really does see an issue with the secondary / defense.

    Early in the season Frazier was being all Chilly on us and saying nothing but at some point you could tell he knew what the problems were but publicly saying a starter sux would do no good for the team.

    I still have faith in Frazier ….

    With a couple of moves we can really adjust and fix our secondary. I’m done with Cedric Griffin and Asher Allen. I’ve seen enough. Cedric used to be good but after he hurt both his knees he not only lost some ability but more importantly he lost his confidence. When I watch him play, it’s almost like he second guesses him self before making a tackle because his scared of getting injured again. I’m sure now his more worried about his future and getting paid now that he realizes 1 more knee injury and his possibly done.

    Asher Allen was a high pick that didn’t work out. That’s it. The coaches just need to face that fact, admit that he didn’t pan out and move on. With 1 move in Free Agency and 1 high pick in the draft and we can completely turn our secondary around.

    The Vikings were seriously perusing several Safeties in FA last year but no one took the bait. I would expect the Vikings to try even harder this off season to acquire a veteran free agent safety after they saw how bad our safeties played. However, I do like rookie Mistral Raymond, he made a couple of plays here and there but I think after a full off season and more experience, he could be a very good starter (hard hitter to). #1 on my wish list would be Lerron Landry from the Redskins but I don’t know if we would be able to afford him.

    I would also like to see Winfield as a FS but I’m not sure if his fast enough, I mean he is the oldest on our team right? But I don’t know if he can survive a full season at slot with all the tackles he makes.

    Next year I would like to see Winfield at FS, hopefully another veteran SS like Landry from free agency, Mistral Raymond and Abdulla (sp) for debt. Cook on one side, hopefully Claiborn or Kirkpatrick on the other and Marcus Sheralls at the slot position. I also like Brandon Burton to step in as debt to give others a rest and get some experience.

    I think this secondary will completely turn thing around.

    Mike Tice is the new Offensive Coordinator of the Bears – Mike Tice, I wonder if he will wear his Vikes Uniform to practice complete with pads again? If we are interviewing Morris – does that mean Pagac is out? Where is Singletary?

    Grading out our players from 2011 – I give Percy and Allen A+ marks on the year – Thats it for A’s though. B’s go to Hutch and AP. That leaves me a mess of C’s D’s and some F’s – not to mention a couple of Incomplete’s as well. On a Bell Curve Grading system – that says we toss out the high and low marks and then everyone appears to get better grades……right….isn’t that how it works? No – don’t get rid of your studs in the NFL – add to them and win. Addition by subtraction some will say( like trade Allen) ……I say a bird in hand is worth more than 2 in the bush.

    I think we need some more A and B playmakers for sure, Most teams don’t have a ton of these players either, but the better teams have more than 4. Looking for our average guys to improve in 2012 also

    We have someone in the position of GM who has been partly (perhaps even LARGELY) responsible for the 6-10, 3-13 debacles.

    You knew that!

    Besides even if they had selected a Brian Billick, Dennis Green, etc. type, we might still want to “encourage” him to select Offensive Linemen, and Defensive Backs.

    I thought you agreed with that philosophy.

    Spags and Morris both…… real good wish list, but I think Xmas is over and we already got our coal.

    Did ownership forsee the current GM vacancy issue in the League and did we lock up Speilman as our GM because of it?? NOPE, no credit to ownership for the move from me – I think it was because of our very own Frederick Jones, thats my answer and I am sticking to it!

    We still had Jimmy K with us and Shiancoe was our #1 TE, now #40 is gone and Shank might either retire or not play for us next season.

I’m really looking forward to see this guy play as our #1 TE.

    And all the Draft O-Line 1st thing is getting boring. We all know O-Line is our #1 priority, so theres no need to keep repeating it. Unless of course Frazier/Spielman want to both lose their jobs next season and make an embarrassment out of themselves, they’re OBVIOUSLY drafting an O-Line. Ponder is a great QB and has potential to become elite real fast, all he needs is “A Little Help from my Friends/O-Line”(Beatles reference).

    While I don’t appreciate your post-pirating take overs with the annoying lengths, I tend to agree with your point on the O-Line. We could have a great QB AND great WRs, and they’d never find each other if the pocket collapses in such short time. Nevermind longevity/health issues to a QB getting punished so much.

    We could certainly use improvment with most of the suggested positions in here…WR is no exception. It’s just tough for us to agree on what to address first, because we have so many needs. I kow I’ll be watching the upcoming draft on the edge of my seat.

    the way to to the Vikings return to greatness is by drafting RGIII with our#1 Pick either holding on to him ourselves or trading him for better draft choices. #2 Get Blackmon if avaliable or any other good Deep threat WR. then O-line Picks D-line Picks Corners, then D-backs.

    Rudolph is going to have to become more of an every down weapon in this offense. As of now he is a terrible blocker and really is only looked at in special situations. Put him out in more pass routes and give him a serious look every play. Make safeties worry about him and free up some space down field. We did not get him as a blocker so send him out and create mismatches.
