With six consecutive Pro Bowl selections from 2011–16 (the longest active streak amongst guards at the time) Yanda is widely considered to be among the best offensive linemen in football. He missed most of the 2017 season due to injury, but was elected to his seventh Pro Bowl in 2018.
Yanda played for the Iowa Hawkeyes football team while attending the University of Iowa, where he was an economics major. He was selected as a third-team All-American by The NFL Draft Report in 2006 and earned second-team All-Big Ten honors from the league's coaches in recognition of his contributions on the field. Yanda's first two college football seasons were played for North Iowa Area Community College.
