Randall McDaniel – Minnesota Vikings

Randall McDaniel Inducted Into The Minnesota Vikings Ring Of Honor.
The next step is the NFL Hall Of Fame for All Pro guard Randall McDaniel. Although Mr. McDaniel was not elected in the class of 2007, (His first year of eligibility) he will most certainly achieve this highest honor for an NFL player. Randall McDaniel played 14 seasons, (1988-2001 and enjoyed tremendous success as he was voted to the pro bowl 12 consecutive years.
Drafted 19th over all by the Vikings in 1988, Mcdaniel weighed in at at roughly 270 pounds and many scouts believed he was to light to battle 300 pound plus defensive linemen week after week. Twelve consecutive pro bowl selections later McDaniel proved the cynics wrong.
The election into the NFL Hall Of Fame is the highest honor to be bestowed upon a player. Randall McDaniel retired from professional football but not from the community. Mr. McDaniel now shares his time with the Robbinsdale Area School District in Minneapolis as a tutor for elementary children that have fallen behind or need an academic challenge.
The Grassy Knoll Institute sends a large thank you to old number 64, twelve time all pro guard Randall McDaniel for the Minnesota Vikings. I appreciate the autographed Ring Of Honor booklet, autographed playbook, and autographed Jets / Vikings Game Day program. Photo-copies will soon adorn my own Vikings Ring Of Honor in my office.
