Where does the Chicago Bears guard depth chart stack up in comparison to their rivals in the NFC North?
As we enter the long offseason with minimal roster change it is a good time to go back and review the roster as a whole. This series will look at each position group in comparison to their rivals in the division. We will look at talent and depth. Who has the best guard combination in the NFC North?
4. Minnesota Vikings: Nick Easton, Tom Compton, Danny Isidora, Colby Gossett
The Minnesota Vikings have a lot of work to do at this position. Nick Easton played all three interior positions and was arguably their most reliable lineman last season. However, his year ended on the IR with ankle surgery. He expects to be fine and ready for this season, but when he is the leader of the group, the group is not strong.
Danny Isidora is a fifth-round pick who played less than 200 snaps as a rookie in 2017. Colby Gossett is a sixth-round pick who is set to be a rookie this season. It is safe to say neither is proven and neither deserve a starting spot. However, the rest of the competition is Tom Compton. Yes, the Compton that the Chicago Bears elected to keep Bradley Sowell over. Brian O’Neil might slide to guard, but this is not a pretty picture being painted right now for the Vikings interior line.
