Iowa center James Daniels has visit planned with 49ers

Mar 27, 2018 at 9:41 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers will host former Iowa center James Daniels for a visit in April, according to Rob Howe of Hawkeye Nation.


Daniels also has visits planned with the Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos, Los Angeles Rams, Chicago Bears, Carolina Panthers, Philadelphia Eagles, and others.

Daniels has experience playing guard and center. He started two games as a true freshman in 2015 at left guard for the Hawkeyes. Iowa coaches moved him to center where he started 11 games in 2016 and 12 games in 2017.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-3 and 295-pound Daniels had a vertical jump of 30.5 inches, a broad jump of 108 inches, completed the three-cone drill in 7.29 seconds, had 21 reps in the bench press, and a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.40 seconds. Other measurables for Daniels include an arm length of 33 3/4 inches and hands that measure 9 1/2 inches.

NFL.com projects that Daniels will be a first- or second-round pick in April's draft.



Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, who compares Daniels to Chris Chester, had the following to say in his scouting report:

"Daniels is a fluid mover with tremendous initial quickness to win positioning on most every zone block he's asked to make -- both on the first and second levels. His height, weight and arm length numbers at the Combine will be critical in either solidifying his draft slot or potentially dropping him a round. Some teams might see him as a zone-only center, but he may be strong enough to fit in with other blocking schemes. He needs to get stronger, but he's a plus run blocker and pass protector with a chance to become a Pro Bowl starter."

NFL analyst believes 49ers' offensive line has "high-end potential"

The San Francisco 49ers have faced some serious roster turnover with their offensive line, as left guard Laken Tomlinson went to the New York Jets in free agency, while center Alex Mack chose to retire after one season with the organization. In addition, right tackle Mike McGlinchey is coming off a torn quadriceps injury that sidelined him for the second half of the 2021 NFL season, although head coach Kyle Shanahan believes the Notre Dame product should be ready for training camp. Earlier this week, PFF's Mike Renner conducted his offensive line rankings for 2022 with several tiers: Minor or no weaknesses(tier 1), high floor(tier 2), high-end potential(tier 3), at



PFF's 2020 re-draft has 49ers passing on Javon Kinlaw for cornerback help

Fans like to play "What If," wondering what things might be like had their favorite team opted for a different choice at a pivotal moment. Fans aren't the only ones, though. Take former San Francisco 49ers safety Jaquiski Tartt, now with the Philadelphia Eagles, for instance. His missed interception of a Matthew Stafford pass intended for receiver Van Jefferson in the NFC title game might have sent the Niners back to the Super Bowl for the second time in three years. "That's a play I should make in my sleep, and I didn't make it," Tartt said after the game. "... I know that was a big play in the game, a big opportunity for me and for the team, and as a player, I just feel like I let my brothers down." Had Tartt made the play, maybe the 49ers win their sixth



Bruschi: 49ers' Trey Lance has 'most to prove' among second-year QBs

The quarterbacks from the 2021 draft class will be linked together and compared for a long time. Most received a significant amount of playing time during their rookie seasons. The one who did not was San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance. He started just two games and spent most of his freshman NFL season learning behind veteran Jimmy Garoppolo. The upcoming season will be different, though. Lance is slated to become the 49ers' full-time starter, with Garoppolo likely to be shipped out of Santa Clara. One ESPN analyst believes Lance has the most to prove among the 2021 first-round quarterback class that also includes Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Justin Fields, and Mac Jones. "He is the one that has the most to prove because you almost have to prove your

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan is still widely regarded as one of the NFL's top play-callers, which is reflected in Pro Football Focus' 2022 ranking of the best offensive play-callers. How did the analytics site determine its ranking? Contributor Eric Eager used the massive amount of data available to him and adjusted each coach's success based on opponents faced. He also factored in expected points based on available talent and the play-caller's success rate, among other things. San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay were left off last year's ranking. Eager explained that Pro Football Focus dinged the
