WATCH: Chase Ford makes behind-the-back catch in OTAs

Minnesota Vikings tight end Chase Ford did an admirable job filling in for the injured Kyle Rudolph in 2014.

He joined the team as an undrafted free agent and punched above his weight class on the year, but now things have changed. Rudolph is healthy, he's already competing with Rhett Ellison and the Vikings spent a fifth-round pick on tight end MyCole Pruitt.

The position is crowded, but that just might mean competition will bring the best out in the players competing for snaps. Ford appears to have a bit of a head start in the "wow factor" category at the first OTA sessions of the year.

10s across the board for Chase Ford's behind-the-back catch.

Ford finished his rookie season with Minnesota with 23 catches on 35 targets for 258 yards and a touchdown. He'll have a chance to compete for the No. 2 tight end spot with Pruitt and Ellison, likely behind Rudolph.
