2015 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs


Walsh's accuracy has been on a decline over the last two years (86.7 percent and 74.3 percent) after his incredible rookie season (35 for 38 in field goal tries - 92.1 percent). Throughout his career, Walsh has converted 17 of his 24 kicks from 50 yards or longer. During his three seasons in the league, the Vikings have given him 30 or more field goal tries. Without Peterson and weak wide receivers, Minnesota had 10 less scoring chances in 2014. They scored 36 TDs and 25 FGs on their 178 possessions. The Vikings will play better offensively in 2015, but they are going to stall many times in the red zone until Bridgewater proves he can make winning plays with his arm. I expect a top-10 opportunity in field goal attempts, but I'm not sure I trust his leg to be an elite player. He won't be an attractive name on draft day so you'll have a free ride early with replaceable value on the waiver wire.
