Andrew Sendejo has improved his game immensely. He's not somebody who stands out the way Harry Smith does, but he's a guy the Vikings really miss when he's out.
same analysts that defend dak prescott? same analysts that still put earl thomas over hitman?

Zimmer typicaly singles out Sandejo as one of the most improved players on the team. There was a comment made last season that when Zimmer first arrived he didn't think Sandejo would even make the team. 4 years later and Sandejo is cemented as a starter. Rather than hypothesize about some random sports journalist, is there an opinion that Zimmer and Spielmen are over-rating him? Take it a step further: Is there an opinion that Spielman and Zimmer are poor evaluators of the safety position?

Me... I think Sandejo is a testament to the abilities of Zimmer and his defensive staff to develop players.
