Scouting Report:

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1692684/mike-daniels wrote:
Strengths: A coordinated athlete with a lightning quick first step and natural explosion ... routinely the first defensive lineman off the ball. Built low to the ground and is most effective when he keeps his pad level low and battles. Has active hands to slip blocks and a high motor to never give up on the play ... plays hard and hungry on every snap. Agile and nimble footwork with smooth body control ... very light on his feet. Fights through the whistle and is always chirping and going at full-go ... love his effort and determination. Extremely tough, battling through an ankle sprain most of 2011. A leader and hard worker off the field, adding over 50-pounds since enrolling
as a 230-pound freshman. Consistently productive over his career (27 tackles for loss and 15.5 sacks). Weaknesses: Undersized and lacks elite bulk and girth for an interior defensive lineman ... doesn't have NFL measureables or length. Lacks a stout anchor and can be redirected off the snap with underwhelming base strength. Tends to play too upright at times and needs to be more consistent with his leverage to maximize his potential. Has short arms and has room to improve his pass rush technique. Struggles to disengage with inconsistent hand use and power ... too often gets lost in a crowd. Needs to wrap and finish, too often settling to just hit the ballcarrier. Battled a leg injury for most of the past season so his medical will be important. Will be scheme-specific at the next level because of his lack of size and strength - won't be a fit for everyone. NFL Comparison: Drake Nevis -- Dane Brugler



General Consensus on the forum: A lot of shrugs here. Few had heard of him, but even in uncertainty, this pick shows how far the Packers fanbase has come in their faith in Ted Thompson. After seeing some highlights and learning about the guy, the forum seems to have few qualms about selecting another interior linemen that specializes in getting after the passer. Contributions to subpackages expected as early as this year.

I haven't seen him at all. He's so short for a de. Any chance he's a OLB?

Don't really know him, but the highlights on ESPN looked impressive.

just by looking at his stats, it seems like he can put some pressure on the qb from the d end spot.

Doubt it. Think Anthony Hargrove.

I really like this pick Mike Daniels might not have the ideal height you want but brings everything we need. Pressure from the inside and he does this really well, as you can see from his nine sacks last season. I think he will become a situational rusher on our defensive line and was a very solid pick.

As a die-hard Hawkeye fan, I've seen Daniels play quite a bit in the last 3 years. He was the strongest player on the team(ala Mike Neal) and he works his butt off. He's a little short but he is very thickly built. I thought he was the best player on the Dline two seasons ago that included Adrian Clayborn(drafted by Bucs in 1st last year) and Christian Ballard(drafted by the Vikes in the 4th last year). Good pick to add to the Dline competition.
