Defensive back Xavier Rhodes is entering his rookie season with the Minnesota Vikings. Rhodes, a Florida State alum, was the 25th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. Rhodes is part of the Vikings much talked about draft class, which also includes fellow first round picks, defensive end Sharrif Floyd and wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson. The Vikings boldly traded three picks, allowing them to get back into the first round and select Patterson.
During his time at Florida State, Rhodes won the 2010 ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year and was a member of the 2012 All-ACC First Team.
Sunday afternoon, per the above iFolloSports.com original video, Rhodes made one of his first professional autograph appearances at AME Sports, in the Twins Cities suburb of Roseville, Minnesota. Rhodes, a Miami native, signed for an hour, while also posing for photos with fans.
