Scouting Report: Strengths
- Daniels has reliable hands and shows the willingness to make catches in traffic over the middle.
- Does not have exceptional straight-line speed but takes advantage of open seams when his quarterback is on target.
- Tracks the ball well downfield and shows good ball skills, including the ability to go up and high-point it in contested-catch situations.
- Balanced, savvy route runner with top field awareness, setting up and selling routes beautifully.
- He’s also a catch-and-run threat, a creative runner who has good vision in the open field; he’ll be an option to return kicks as well.
- Does not possess top breakaway speed, though he's rarely caught from behind.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Daniels won't threaten the top of the defense.
- Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
- Inconsistent high-pointing passes. Allows too many throws into his body when facing the quarterback.
