It is always interesting to see how linemen develop when coming off of their redshirt year. That is the case for today’s player.

Defensive Tackle

2018 Projection: Contributor on the Defensive Line

Purdue has a need at defensive tackle this year. Lorenzo Neal is the one proven tackle we have that comes back, while guys like Alex Criddle, Anthony Watts, and Keiwan Jones have varying levels of experience coming back.

Daniels certainly has hte size to contribute this season. In high school he had 89 tackles and six sacks. His job will be to be a large human being in the middle of the defense plugging holes. Since defensive tackle is a spot where having depth and a rotation is critical, I’d expect him to be a pretty major contributor. With only six returning defensive tackle we’ll need him to.
