Kyle Rudolph   #82 TE

Height: 6-6   Weight: 265   Age: 28

Born: 11/9/1989 Cincinnati , OH

College: Notre Dame

Experience: 8th season

High School: Elder HS [Cincinnati, OH]









Draft 2011

Pick No.43

Selected By: Minnesota Vikings

Round: 2

Pick (Overall): 11 (43)

Pick Analysis: Rudolph missed the final seven games of 2010 after undergoing hamstring surgery, but he has the potential to develop into a weapon in the passing game at the next level. He is fast and has the hip fluidity to separate in and out of his breaks in man coverage. He has tremendous hands and shows a knack for coming down with the ball in traffic. He lacks the strength and bulk to be an effective run blocker, but he works hard to sustain and keeps solid position. Rudolph is a very good receiving tight end and could be a steal in the second round.
