Overview:

Daniels who finished his career at Iowa has great size, he is a good run blocker, he opens holes up for his backs, and he has good speed. He is also very athletic, he is a tough nosed player, and he has good instincts. He is also a good pass blocker, he is a mauler, and is very powerful. He also gets a good push on the defensive line, and does not get pushed around that easily. He is very active using his hands to get leverage, he does a good job of resetting his legs, and stopping defenders, and he does a good job of bending his knees, showing off his athleticism. On the other hand, he has some issues with faster defenders being able to by him when the quarterback rolls out of the pocket. With that said, I see Daniels as a late 1st-round, to early 2nd-round pick, and one of the first 2 centers taken.
