Draft Analysis:

Bucky Brooks' take: Daniels will fight for a playing time on a deep and talented Packers front line. He brings some intriguing tools to the table, but he will need to impress early to crack the lineup.

  • 6'0" Height
  • 32 1/2" Arm Length
  • 291LBS. Weight
  • 9 5/8" Hands

Overview

Daniels, a two-year starter inside for Iowa, is an active, high-motor, high-character performer. He is undersized but uses that to his advantage to get inside of blockers. He has fourth-round talent as a rotational player, but he has the physical traits and intangibles to develop into more.

Analysis

Strengths

Daniels is quick off the ball and uses his small frame to work between blockers. He has the instincts to understand schemes and work against them, and he is strong enough, despite his relative lack of size, to engage and then shed a blocker to burst to the play. He is flexible and an overall active interior player.

Weaknesses

Daniels is undersized and gets engulfed by bigger blockers and double teams. His strength and effort will suffice, but bigger players have a clear advantage on him at times. He will have to be placed in good spots and schemes to be effective inside in the NFL.
