Vikings | Like what they see from Xavier Rhodes
Thu, 20 Jun 2013 16:01:59 -0700

Minnesota Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes, one of their first-round picks in 2013, has earned positive reviews about his ball skills from first-year defensive coordinator Alan Williams. He said that in practice, Rhodes "got his hands on some balls and he's not giving up deep balls. That's the big thing because a lot of guys like to sit on passes and you see them intercept balls and you say 'wow' and then a lot of balls are going over his head. And he's not giving up either. He's tough down low and up top." Williams also said that Rhodes should pair with fellow tall, rangy CB Chris Cook to give the Norse more flexibility on their play-calling.

Harrison Smith already has helped this secondary's takeaway potential, and a group of steadier CBs could push Minny into occasional fantasy relevance..
