2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Wayne Daniels, DE, TCU
In 2009 Daniels finally stepped into a starting role at the defensive end spot and ranked second on the team with 5.5 sacks behind only Jerry Hughes. Daniels added 9.0 tackles-for-loss and 50 tackles. As a result Daniels earned Second-Team All-Mountain West Conference accolades. With Hughes off in the NFL, 2010 was supposed to be Daniels year. Early on it appeared to be the case as Daniels tallied 5.5 sacks in the four early season games, but ended his senior campaign with just one more sack. His 6.5 sacks still led the team and it was often Daniels who garnered most of the attention from the opposing offensive line.
Daniels will likely move to the outside linebacker position in the NFL. Ideally that would be as a rush linebacker in a 3-4 scheme, but he could be an end in a 4-3 as a pass rushing specialist. The fact that he is generally not considered strong enough to be an end or fast enough to be a linebacker is hurting Daniels' draft stock and he will likely be a late round selection.
