2017 NFL Draft: Minnesota Vikings Select Danny Isidora

New, comments

Minnesota goes back to the offensive line well for the second time in this draft.

NCAA Football: Senior Bowl-South Practice Glenn Andrews-USA TODAY Sports

After a pretty lengthy break between picks, the Minnesota Vikings had a pair of selections in Round 5. After taking South Florida wide receiver Rodney Adams at #170 overall, Rick Spielman and company stayed on the offensive side of the ball and got some more line help.

With pick #180 in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings have selected Danny Isidora, a guard out of the University of Miami.

Isidora was a long-time starter for the Hurricanes, grabbing the starting spot at right guard in 2014 and starting every game for “The U” from that point on. He’s got very light feet for a big man and is a very good pulling guard with nice mobility. Sometime he tends to get his base a little too wide and get knocked off balance, but overall he projects to someone that could potentially be a solid contributor to the Minnesota Vikings’ offensive line.

The Vikings are next slated to pick again at pick #199 overall in the sixth round.

Welcome to Minnesota, Danny Isidora!
