SCOUTING REPORT

Daniels' combination of athleticism, mobility, and arm strength places him in the 'High-End Starter Potential' category (65-69). His ability to make plays both on the ground and through the air, coupled with his leadership qualities, makes him a promising prospect. However, his need for further development, particularly in pocket passing and deep throw accuracy, suggests that he would benefit from a supportive developmental environment in the NFL.

Primary scout:

Brandon Lundberg

PLAYSTYLE & SCHEME FIT

Daniels is a prototypical dual-threat quarterback, excelling in plays that leverage his running ability to set up passing opportunities. His skill set is particularly suited to offensive schemes that emphasize RPOs (Run-Pass Options), quick hits, and plays that move the launch point, allowing him to utilize his mobility and athleticism. His ability to make plays on the move and outside the pocket would be maximized in an offense that incorporates these elements.
