corner back battle. The battle is between Sheppard and Asher Allen. As of right now, Allen is the starting CB on the left side. This is due to a knee injury that starting CB Cedric Griffin sustain in the NFC Championship game.
Asher Allen is taking this first depth chart as a grain of salt. He may be impressing the coaches right now, but he cannot keep his guard down. This fight is not even close to being over as of yet.
Lito came to Minnesota to have the best chance to start and bring veteran experience to a secondary that has not been the Vikes strong suite in the past years.Everyone figured that Lito would fill in while Griffin was out with his injury.
It will be something to see how each player performs in the preseason games. It sounds like both player have and will get the same amount of reps with 1dt and 2nd team defenses.
If anyone has any thoughts of this depth chart give a shout out.
