Minnesota Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs
The Minnesota Vikings will have the most fights in team history in the right guard this summer.
Since the end of the 2017 season, the franchise has struggled to lock down the spot, with little stability as a result of men auditioning for the likes of Mike Remars, Dakota Dozier, Drew Samia and Oli Udoh. To be fair to a man named Josh Klein, he played admirably in the 2019 season but then chose not to return to the NFL.
So, while former general manager Rick Spielman and head coach Mike Zimmer have not fully recovered from the RG position, a new leadership tandem between Kwesi Adofo-Mensah and Kevin O’Connell is forming an RG party to fix chronic illness. In fact, five people could be RG1 for the Vikings in September – Jesse Davis, White Davis, Ed Ingram, Chris Reed or Oli Udoh.
All of these men are under contract for Minnesota and have ties to the RG position in the past
On saturday Bleacher Report Each team guessed the starting lineup and thus had a predictable verdict for the Vikings on the right guard. Maurice Motton of the Bleacher Report Rocky Ed Ingram predicts winning the jobDavis beats Reed and Udoh.
Adopho-Mensah gambled with a man of suspicious character in Round 2 of the draft a few weeks ago, bringing a controversial past to the team over allegations of old sexual harassment. All allegations against Ingram were eventually dropped, but the draft pick disappointed many Viking enthusiasts.
The Vikings were adamant they persevered in Ingram’s background, and so, Ingram should start early from the right guard or center. That’s what the offensive linemen in the 2nd round do – start in the NFL. And Moton’s forecast aligned with Ingram’s draft stock.
Ingram played 45 games at LSU and was part of the 2019 team that won a national championship – along with Joe Barrow, Justin Jefferson, Jamar Chase and others. He’s ready to play, and the Vikings have captured their excitement about him in the team’s recently released draft mini-documentary.
Another theory – not mentioned by Moton – is that if the team is dissatisfied with current Garrett Bradbury this summer, it will relocate to Ingram. So far, the Vikings’ new coaching staff has all the positive things to say about the 2019 1st-rounder, but Bradbury’s pass protection in the NFL is undesirable. Conversely, pass-blocking is the power of Ingram. According to Pro football focus, Ingram played 806 offensive snaps in 2021, including 484 pass-blocking plays. He allowed only two sacks on the way to an 82.6 pass-blocking grade.
Ingram reached out to the Vikings through trade. Early in the draft, the Minnesota deal with the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers – sending some fans into a frenzy – but the results of the deal were numerous. The Lions and Packers got Jameson Williams (DET), Josh Pashall (DET) and Christian Watson (GB), while Minnesota finally traded Lewis Cine (S), Andrew Booth (CB), Ingram, Brian Asamoah (CB) for drafting. Used. LB), Esezi Otomewo (EDGE), and Ty Chandler (RB).
The Browns, Colts, and Raiders also made low-round picks from the deal through final deals with the Vikings.
