Chase Daniel #10 QB
Height: 6-0 Weight: 225 Age: 26
Born: 10/7/1986 Irving , TX
Experience: 5th season
High School: Carroll HS [Southlake, TX]
Although Daniel lacks prototypical height, he has not come up short in his production or moxie for the Tigers. The 2007 Heisman finalist was a three-year starter in Missouri's spread offense (which he also ran in high school), completing 68.5 percent of his passes (72.9 percent in 2008) for 12,515 yards and 100 touchdowns. Though he's rarely given credit for his mobility, Daniel also ran for almost 1,000 yards during his career.
His pro grade may depend on which film teams use when grading him, as he started off his senior campaign as hot as any quarterback in the country, leading Missouri to as high as a No. 4 ranking by throwing for a staggering 15 touchdowns against only one interception. A tough outing against Oklahoma State (one touchdown, three interceptions) led to a steady decline in consistency and production as the 2008 season wore, culminating in a disappointing week of practice at the East-West Shrine Game.
No one can argue with his production, but Daniel's lack of height, arm-strength and ability to rally down the stretch could result in him falling completely out of the draft. Had an arm span of 28 3/4 inches and a hand span of 9 1/4 inches at the combine.
