Draft Analysis:

The Vikings fielded arguably the worst offensive line unit in the NFL last season. Isidora should at least provide some competition in camp entering the season. --Mark Dulgerian

Overview

For the past three years, Isidora has been a steady performer at the right guard spot for the Hurricanes. A four-star recruit from Weston, Florida, he redshirted his first year on campus to get stronger and then missed the first 10 games of the 2013 season due to a foot injury. Isidora grabbed the starting spot for the start of the 2014 season and did not relinquish it through the rest of his career. He finally received notice for his play by league coaches after the 2016 season, being one of three guards to be voted second-team All-ACC.

Analysis

Strengths

Has size of an NFL guard with thick bubble and good arm length for interior. Big man with light feet and plus agility. Can lead the charge as pulling guard and has reactive quickness for sudden adjustments in space. Never loses sight of his second level target on work-up blocks. Strong hands can snatch and sustain his blocks. Won't linger on secure block long and climbs quickly up to linebackers. Instinctive. Recognizes when tackles are setting up twists and immediately searches for the second block. Will find additional work in pass protection. Patient and quiet with his hands and uses well-timed, stiff punch with inside hand. Feet can mirror throughout the rep.

Weaknesses

Plays with an excessively wide base causing him to get jostled off-balance by power. Issues holding up to power showed up at the Senior Bowl practices. Had to fight overtime to maintain his positioning. More stalemater than block winner. Has some wasted motion in his movements in space. Needs to work feet into position for better block security. Can be frenetic up to second level. Allows momentum to carry him beyond his target at times.

Round 5-6

Bottom Line

Isidora is an athletic guard with good size and above-average hands who plays with a base that can get too wide. He has the lateral quickness to be a fit for teams looking to get their guards out in space, but his issues anchoring against bull-rushes at Senior Bowl were a concern. Isidora has enough talent to become a starter, but his issues holding up against power could derail those plans if he doesn't address them.
