BIO: Three-year starter and previous All-Conference selection. Senior totals included 178/821/3 on the ground and 20/157/1 as a pass catcher. Led the ACC in rushing as a sophomore with 283/1,447/10.
POSITIVES: Well-built ball carrier who runs with authority. Waits for blocks to develop, has a burst through the hole and quickly gets into the open space of the defense. Makes defenders miss and keeps the play in bounds to pick up yardage. Runs with nice lean, falling forward when tackled. Solid receiver out of the backfield.
NEGATIVES: Gets marginal results blocking. Not a strong, sturdy back. Struggled with minor injuries the past two seasons.
ANALYSIS: A running back who combines instincts and toughness, Daniels is a force when fully healthy. Durability concerns will push him into the middle part of the draft yet he offers the tools to be a productive situational\back-up ball carrier in the NFL.
