Irv Smith Jr. Write-Up

The Vikings have been trying to find a complement to Kyle Rudolph for some time and may have just found his replacement instead. Smith is a bit undersized at 6-3 and 243 pounds and didn't show particularly well at combine (32.5" vertical, 110" broad) or measure out well (74 7/8" wingspan, 31 1/2" arms), but he is a well-rounded player who probably would've been the top-rated tight end in many drafts. Smith is a good route-runner and does damage after the catch, which has never been one of Rudolph's strong points. Assuming Rudolph is nearing the end in Minnesota, Smith will start sooner than later for the Vikings, although is not a particularly good bet for rookie-year production. His dynasty outlook is rosier, however, and he'll probably be worth a pick in the third round in rookie drafts.
