Wyatt Davis – OG

After an impressive college career at Ohio State, the Vikings decided to use a third-round pick on Wyatt Davis during the 2021 NFL Draft.

Given his success at the college level (two-time All-American), some thought he could emerge as Minnesota’s starting right guard as a rookie last season. However, Davis only wound up appearing in six games for the Vikings in 2021 and none of his time on the field was spent on offense (only special teams snaps).

With Minnesota’s free-agent signings of Jesse Davis and Chris Reed earlier this year combined with the Vikings drafting former LSU guard Ed Ingram in the second round this past weekend, Davis’ time with the franchise could be coming to an end in the near future.

The young blocker will have a lot to prove during Minnesota’s training camp this summer. But the recent addition of Ingram to the roster might be an indication that the writing is already on the wall for Davis.
