Wayne Daniels
Position: DE
Class:  5Sr
School: TCU
Conference: Mountain West
HT: 6-0.5
WT: 260
40 Time: 5.03
Biography: All-Conference selection the past two seasons as a full-time starter. Senior totals included 39/14/6.5 after he had 50/9/5.5 as a junior.

Positives: "Productive college pass rusher with poor size/speed numbers for the next level. Moves well on his feet, plays with good pad level, and makes plays down the line of scrimmage. Quickly changes direction, effectively drops off the line, and plays in space when necessary. Adequate speed off the edge, works his hands throughout the action, and chases plays hard. Shows an array of moves working to get off blocks."

Negatives: Undersized and struggles getting off blocks once engaged the point. Not forceful up the field when stood up over tackle. Has poor speed.

Analysis: Daniels was a forceful player for TCU the past two seasons but lacks the size to be an every-down defensive end and the speed to play linebacker. He's a potential nickel pass rusher in third-down situations.

Projection: FA
