Backup Interior: Forrest Lamp, Cohl Cabral, Calvin Throckmorton
The Saints brought back Forrest Lamp a few weeks ago after he spent the 2021 season in New Orleans. Lamp went in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft to the Chargers but didn’t stick on there. He appeared in one game for the Saints in the 2021 season and is probably the backup plan at left guard should Peat get injured.
Cohl Cabral attended Arizona State and hasn’t seen playing in the NFL yet. He’s spent time with the Rams, Texans, and Vikings and now is trying his luck with his fourth NFL team. He played center in college and could be an option at said position if McCoy is forced to miss an extended period of time (though Ruiz is likely the one who would slide over).
Lastly, there’s Calvin Throckmorton, who stepped in at right guard when Ruiz took over at center and then slid to left guard to fill in for Peat. Throckmorton wasn’t great but he knows the offense so it’s not surprising to see him still on the roster.

The offensive line depth chart should see some changes once the NFL Draft is in the books. For now, however, this is what Saints fans are looking at when it comes to the position.
