Alex Daniels

School: Cincinnati
Position: OLB
Bio: Transfer from Minnesota who became a full-time starter last season then posted career numbers of 56/11/8.5 from his defensive end position. Junior totals included 16 tackles and one sack. Began his career at Minnesota as a running back.
Positive: Quick, explosive athlete moving up draft boards. Bends his knees, plays with leverage, and works his hands throughout the action. Fast off the edge, wedges between blocks on the inside, and rarely off his feet. Breaks down well using his hands to protect himself and chases hard to get involved in the action. Fluid if asked to twist or stunt, immediately alters his angle of attack and pursues the play from all directions.
Negative: Lacks natural bulk, easily knocked off balance by the first block or out-positioned by opponents. Primarily used up the field and rarely asked to make plays in reverse. Average instincts.
Analysis: Daniels stepped up his last season after primarily being a backup the prior Three-years. He possesses the size and athleticism to make the transition to outside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment and could be an indispensable pass rush specialist for a squad at the next level.
