Scouting Report
A versatile athlete, Daniels wrapped up an extraordinary collegiate career as one of the defensive leaders on a Cincinnati team that went 12-1 and finished the 2009 season ranked eighth in the nation. He began his career at Minnesota as a defensive lineman before moving to running back as a sophomore. He was the Golden Gophers' second-leading rusher in 2006, amassing 309 yards on the ground with five touchdowns. That was the last season he suited up at the running back position and for Minnesota. Daniels sat out the 2007 after transferring to Cincinnati, and played in all 27 games in his two-year career with the Bearcats. While most of Cincinnati's success last season had to do with its prolific offense, Daniels did an excellent job of disrupting the opposing team's offense. He finished his senior year with 56 tackles - including 11 for loss - and led the Bearcats with 8 1/2 sacks. Despite proving to be a well-rounded athlete, Daniels hasn't received much attention leading up to the draft and is unlikely to be selected.
