Vikings linebacker Eric Kendricks had himself another solid 2020 season, despite Minnesota’s bad defense overall.

In Pro Football Focus’ end-of-the-season player rankings, Kendricks ranked 70th.

Here’s what Sam Monson wrote about Kendricks:

Another player who shined brightly but lost a portion of his season to injury, Eric Kendricks played fewer than 800 snaps but was one of only two linebackers to finish the season with a PFF coverage grade above 90 (the other was All-Pro Fred Warner). Kendricks had three interceptions and four pass breakups and allowed a passer rating of just 60.5 when targeted, more than 40 points lower than the typical linebacker target.

Kendricks was the only Vikings’ defensive player to make the list.

There were only two linebackers ranked ahead of Kendricks.

Other Vikings to make the list include Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen, Dalvin Cook and Kirk Cousins.
