Wayne Daniels, DE, TCU

On TCU it usually takes some time for a defensive player to work his way into the starting lineup. That was the case with defensive end Wayne Daniels. Daniels was one of a few true freshman to see action in 2006, but his playing time was limited. The following year the 6-2, 250 pound Kilgore, Texas native redshirted. In 2008 Daniels was once again stuck behind some talented players on the depth chart and only tallied 11 tackles.

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.
