The Miami Dolphins added depth to their offensive line on Friday, trading a 2020 seventh-round pick to the Minnesota Vikings for left guard Danny Isidora. They followed that deal up with another one, landing another interior lineman from the Indianapolis Colts in Evan Boehm.
A three-year starter at the University of Miami, Isidora was a fifth-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft. He never materialized into a starter with the Vikings, however, receiving just five starts in two seasons.
Michael Deiter, Kyle Fuller, and Michael Dunn are currently the Dolphins’ top three left guards. Deiter, a former standout at Wisconsin, was a third-round pick in this year’s draft. Fuller, a 2017 seventh-round pick, made two starts during his rookie season with the Houston Texans before appearing in two games last season with the Washington Redskins. Dunn, who played for the Birmingham Iron of The Alliance of American Football, initially broke into the NFL with the Los Angeles Rams. He had two different stints with the Rams before spending time on the Jacksonville Jaguars‘ practice squad last season.
Boehm is a fourth-year pro who has seen starts in each of his first three seasons. He made just one start as a rookie for the Cardinals in 2016 then another eight starts for the team one year later, appearing at right guard. He landed with the Colts in 2018, where he made four starts at center.
It’s highly unlikely these acquisitions have any relation to the reported Laremy Tunsil.turned down involving projected starting left tackle
Isidora and Boehm traded to Miami a day before each NFL team is required to get their roster down to their 53-man unit before the start of the regular season.
