Danny Vitale   #45 FB

Height: 6-0   Weight: 239   Age: 25

Born: 10/26/1993 Wheaton , IL

College: Northwestern

Experience: 4th season

High School: Wheaton-Warrenville South HS [Wheaton, IL]









Draft 2016

Pick No.197

Selected By: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Round: 6

Pick (Overall): 22 (197)

Pick Analysis: Northwestern's "superback" is a one-of-a-kind position in college football, and Vitale's (vuh-TAL-ee) intelligence, size, physicality, and receiving skills were made to fill that role. Hes consistently been a part of the passing game during his career (102 receptions for over 1,000 yards and seven scores his first three years), and when the Wildcats want to focus on the run, Vitale can open up holes for running backs from an H-back or in-line spot. He capped off his career with a second-team All-Big Ten effort in 2015, leading the team with 33 receptions for 355 yards and a career-high four scores.
