Danny Isidrora has officially moved on from Miami, after being selected by the Minnesota Viking in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Isidora will be blocking for former FSU nemesis, now teammate, RB Dalvin Cook. He’ll also be tasked with protecting quarterback Sam Bradford. The Vikings offensive line has undergone some changes after tackle Matt Khalil left to join the Panthers this off-season.

An athletic guard, Isidora will look to pull and down-block his way to success at the pro level. At six foot three, weighing 306 pounds, Danny Isidora ran a sub 5.00 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine this past March.

Danny Isidora has started on the Hurricanes offensive line since the 2014 season. Isidora was a part of an offensive line group that allowed the fewest tackles for loss in the country with an average of 4.31. They were also 34th in the nation in sacks allowed with a 1.46 average. UM’s passing offense was second in the ACC ( and 29th in the country)

Isidora did not allow a pressure in 9 of the 13 games he played in the 2016 season (ProFootballFocus.com).

Isidora has the ability to get to the second level of the defense, opening lanes in the run game. Best suited for a zone blocking system, Isidora is nimble for a man his size, possessing the power to drive defenders backward at the point of attack. One of the better pass-blocking guards in the draft

CONGRATUATIONS DANNY!
