Starting Offensive Line

  • Christian Darrisaw – LT

At only 24 years old, Christian Darrisaw has been a reliable left tackle for the last two seasons. The first-round pick of the Vikings in 2021, he provides stability to an offensive line that can struggle as a unit at times.

  • Ezra Cleveland – LG

Entering the final year of his rookie deal, Ezra Cleveland has 43 games of starting experience and likely won't be someone the Vikings would like to let walk in free agency. He is a serviceable starting left guard and should be a starter in the NFL for many more years.

  • Garrett Bradbury – C

Garrett Bradbury is coming off his best year as a pro and will look to expand on that after signing a three-year contract this offseason. He still has room to improve but is a stable and familiar face on the line.

  • Ed Ingram – RG

Ed Ingram struggled at right guard during his rookie year with the Minnesota Vikings. The hope is that he will continue to grow and evolve as he gains experience as part of this returning offensive line grouping.

  • Brian O’Neill – RT

Standing six-foot-seven and weighing over 300 pounds, Brian O'Neill holds down the right side of the offensive line as a strong pass blocker and capable run blocker. He is under contract through the 2026 NFL season.
