Your thoughts ?
What strikes me about this highlight reel is he's making some plays against some good football schools...not just against Davy Crockett St. and such. Check out 3:35 of this...he just tosses aside an oncoming rusher.
Also, I'm not even sure if he had any playmakers on offense to help him stand out... are any of the WRs/RBs/TEs or O-linemen (that he played with in college) in the NFL tearing it up?
The only one I can think of is Jason Pierre Paul, BUT he was on defense...

He might be our #2 before you know it and McCoy might get dropped. His instincts are way too good.
I am with you 100%, I would be shocked if can't beat out Tolzien, so I am definitely booking it !!
I also believe the only thing McCoy has over him is experience and nothing more. You are totally right about the instincts, he has a great sense of feel where all the receivers are and how best to throw to them.
I would say let him simmer a bit behind Kap for a year or so, dare I say he might even give Kap a run for his money. If you look at his rushing, he has a far more elusive style witn a lot of side-stepping and yet he still has a great top end speed. Throws wise, his arm is not weak neither and I like the way he can arc the ball which to some extent is lacking in Kap's game.

I was really impressed with Daniels in this interview posted today on CSN Bay Area (link: http://www.csnbayarea.com/blog/matt-maiocco/versatile-daniels-doing-little-everything). Seems to really have great perspective for a rookie coming into the NFL, let alone a top team like the 49ers. He could be a great addition/third-string QB on our team (he's not overtaking McCoy for #2). He's got charisma, seems to have a good work ethic (from how he speaks about it), and he seems like he's a leader-type. Who knows...this type of competition between him and Tolzien is what camp is all about. May the best man win.
I just watched it. He seems mature, very well-grounded and yet confident. I hope he won't just end up playing special teams cos I see great QB potential in him.
