After two years at Lackawanna Junior College in Scranton, Pennsylvania, where he was converted from defensive line (where he played in high school) to offensive tackle after training up from 250 pounds to 320 pounds, McKinnie left JUCO as the top-rated offensive lineman in the country, and signed with the University of Miami.

Also in 2001, McKinnie was the winner of the Outland Trophy, finished 8th overall in voting for the 2001 Heisman Trophy, was the CNN Sports Illustrated "Player of the Year" and a key part of the Hurricanes' 2001 National Championship.

FHM magazine article

In the September 2006 issue of FHM magazine, McKinnie was one of five University of Miami alumni prominently featured in an article titled: "University of Miami Hit Squad: The Hurricanes are Taking Over the NFL.

NFL career

McKinnie was the 7th overall pick in the 2002 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings, and has been the starting left tackle for the Vikings since his rookie season, in which he held out until mid-November. Some say his 2005 performance was worthy of a Pro Bowl trip, although he did not receive one. Many are expecting the addition of two Pro Bowl linemen to the Vikings line, (Steve Hutchinson next to him on left guard and center Matt Birk, who is returning in 2006 from injury) to boost McKinnie's performance even more in the 2006 season.

On May 26th, 2006, McKinnie pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and being a public nuisance on a watercraft in connection with the Love Boat scandal. He agreed to pay a $1,000 fine and perform 48 hours of community service. Vikings owner Ziggy Wilf said, in addition to community service, he would participate in numerous service events this season. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said fines were likely, but he said McKinnie won't be suspended.


Comments about Daunte Culpepper

In February 2006, the Vikings were considering trading quarterback Daunte Culpepper and McKinnie told the St. Paul Pioneer Press: "We already made one mistake [trading Moss]. Don't do it twice [by trading Culpepper]. If that's the case, let me go." Culpepper was traded shortly afterwards to the Miami Dolphins and Mckinnie re-signed with the Vikings anyway.
