Has Ed Ingram won the starting guard job?

·1 min read

After the Vikings selected Ed Ingram in the second round of the 2022 NFL draft, he is currently trending to be the starter at right guard.

Trending is the key word here, as head coach Kevin O’Connell hasn’t confirmed who the opening day starter will be at right guard will be against the Green Bay Packers.

Where does this leave the other competitors for the job? Jesse Davis has shown a lot of struggles, including a sub-five-point pass blocking PFF grade against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Chris Reed – who played in his first preseason game this week against the Denver Broncos – suffered an elbow injury early in training camp. After signing with the Vikings after playing the Indianapolis Colts last season, Reed has split time at both center and guard.

Oli Udoh and Wyatt Davis have also been in contention at one point but both are firmly on the roster bubble.

If Ingram wins the job and plays well, it will be a home run selection for new general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah.
