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."

Height: 6-3
Weight: 295 lbs.
Arm length: 33 3/4 inches
Hand length: 9 1/2 inches

49ers players say Jimmy Garoppolo looks 'real good' and has improved since last week

Jimmy Garoppolo's playing status against the Los Angeles Rams this week probably won't be known until gameday, but it sounds like he's been making visible strides in practice, based on what his teammates said Thursday. Garoppolo sat out last week's win over the Houston Texans in favor of rookie Trey Lance due to a thumb injury that may or may not require surgery in the offseason, but he's been back at practice this week as the 49ers prepare for their season finale in Los Angeles (4:25 p.m. ET/1:25 p.m. PT, FOX). He was naturally a popular topic of conversation during post-practice media sessions on Thursday, with reporters wanting to know the players'



49ers' playoff-clinching win vs. Rams has added meaning for me

I was 16 years old when the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys last met in the playoffs. Twenty-seven years later, they are preparing to do so again. The 49ers got there with a thrilling come-from-behind 27-24 overtime victory over the division-rival Los Angeles Rams. In 1995, my 49ers fandom was springing to life. I remember watching the seasons leading up to that one and seeing my father frustrated by previous playoff exits at the hands of the Cowboys. I occasionally watched, rooting on the Bay Area team because of my father. It brought him joy, as it would for me in the years that followed. However, there was something different about that 1994 campaign, and my father knew it. The 49ers were on a mission, loading up on talent and setting their sights on



'They'll be a real, real mess to deal with': Cowboys' Jerry Jones offers scouting report on 49ers, has no concerns over opposing fans

While the San Francisco 49ers are preparing to head on the road for the start of the playoffs, the Dallas Cowboys are preparing to host Kyle Shanahan's squad. Naturally, the last thing the Cowboys want to see is a takeover of their home stadium, which is what we saw at SoFi Stadium during the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams. On Tuesday morning, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones joined 105.3 The Fan and acknowledged that he has no control over who buys the tickets. However, he boasted about the Cowboys having the highest resale ticket prices in the NFL right now, which he feels could help limit the number of opposing fans for the playoff matchup. Although, he also



DL Arden Key says coming to 49ers has exceeded expectations: 'I love it here'

It's not impossible to imagine a situation where the 49ers and defensive lineman Arden Key are unable to hammer out a new contract this offseason, but it won't be because Key isn't happy being a part of the organization. Key signed with the 49ers on a one-year deal in April after being let go by the Raiders, for whom he played three seasons after being selected as a third-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Key has voiced displeasure in the past about his time with the Raiders after posting just 37 tackles and three sacks over those three seasons, but he's had the exact opposite reaction about his time with the 49ers, which has seen him collect a career high 6.5 sacks and 17
