Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Enough arm strength to drive the ball through tight windows up to 20 yards downfield. Spreads the ball around to multiple receivers.
  • Good zip and ball placement on the quick slant. Good touch down the seam and on post-corner, flag routes to attack the defense vertically and horizontally.
  • Most of the time Daniels is at ease mentally in the pocket, and he’s willing to stand in and absorb hits while making a throw.
  • Ball placement at short and intermediate levels is a strength. Daniels moved quickly through progressions when asked to.
  • Physically, he is a natural athlete who plays with the balance and light feet to float in the pocket.
  • Daniels has good arm talent, and it could get better as he polishes his mechanics and footwork.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • He’s going to have a tough time with full-field reads. Accuracy’s an issue when throwing into tight windows.
  • Daniels often fails to set his feet; his stride is extremely inconsistent, leading to constant accuracy problems.
  • He’s clearly more effective when on the move, and many of his reads were half-field.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
