Randall McDaniel - Class of 2009
Regarded as one of the finest offensive linemen in NFL history, McDaniel was named to the NFL’s All-Decade Team of the 1990s.
McDaniel blocked for six different 1,000-yard rushers and five 3,000-yard passers during his 14-season career.
McDaniel was selected to play in a record 12 consecutive AFC-NFC Pro Bowls
McDaniel immediately earned a starting role with the Vikings, played in all 16 games in his rookie season, 15 as a starter.
His efforts were recognized that year as he was selected to several all-rookie teams and named a second-team All-NFC pick.
Randall McDaniel embarked on a streak of 202 consecutive starts that continued through the end of his career.
McDaniel became the first guard in Pro Bowl history to be on the receiving end of a TD pass.
In 1998 he showed his skill at both pass and run blocking, McDaniel allowed only 1.5 sacks all season while clearing run lanes for Minnesota running backs to average 5.4 yards per carry on his side of the line.
McDaniel joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for two final seasons (2000-01) before retiring from the NFL.
Adding to an already talented offense, McDaniel in his first season with the Bucs, helped pave the way for a team that rushed for 2,066 yards. That included a team single-game record 250 yards rushing against the Dallas Cowboys.
