Saints Signing Former Vikings Third-Round Guard

When Ohio State guard Wyatt Davis was drafted in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft, many believed that the Vikings got themselves a steal, but in his rookie year, he was able to appear in just six games, all of which came on special teams, logging 0 offensive snaps in his entire rookie campaign. Unfortunately for Davis, his struggles in the pre-season allowed Oli Udoh to take win the battle between the two, and after just one season, the Vikings had seen enough, and moved on from the former All-American. 

Davis was considered a steal for Minnesota in the third round, and after being cut, the New York Giants signed him to their practice squad, making clear that he has potential if he continues to grow and develop, and today, the New Orleans Saints have signed Davis off the Giants practice squad.

Davis is still just 23-years old, and he has the potential to become a solid starter in the NFL, and if the Saints can be patient with his development, there's no reason why he can't become a great player in the future. The Saints have designs on making a genuine, deep playoff run in 2022, and a lot of that potential will come from protecting Jameis Winston and allowing this offence to thrive, and while Davis may not play a huge role in 2022, he may become a big part of this team in future seasons.
