Daniels has a shot at being a late first-round pick, and if he slips to Friday night, he should get selected in the second round.
"Whenever you're watching Iowa offensive linemen, you know you're going to get a technique-proficient guy", NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock said.
In a shocking trade, the Chicago Bears moved up to the 51st overall pick, giving the New England Patriots their 2019 second-round pick and one of their 2018 fourth-round picks to select Memphis wide receiver Anthony Miller. Daniels was the 39th player picked overall. And the draft was another indication that after years of post-Lovie dysfunction, the Bears' arrow finally is pointing up.
The Bears have spent the offseason loading up the offense to help Trubisky develop into the franchise quarterback they believe he can become, and they got back to that after drafting Georgia standout linebacker Roquan Smith with the No. 8 pick.
Goedert Goes the Eagles
In announcing the Eagles' second round pick, Akers unleashed the kind of promo that someone from WWE would stand up and applaud. The Super Bowl champions had only one pick in the first two days of the draft after trading out of the first round.
The Bears have a lot to prove on the field, but in the court of public opinion, general manager Ryan Pace - the lowest rated established GM in the NFL by NFL.com - seemed to have turned a corner over the weekend. That means Cody Whitehair will be snapping the ball to Trubisky after bouncing between center and guard over two seasons. "Or, if you're a guard, you better be able to play center or tackle". "That is what it is with James Daniels". Veteran journeyman Eric Kush lined up in that spot during last week's veteran minicamp, and they've added veteran Earl Watford for depth.
Daniels should provide immediate help on the offensive line. "They all have that".
Daniels, an honorable mention All-Big Ten selection by coaches and media, started the final 12 games after missing the season opener because of injury. He is looking forward to playing with Trubisky after getting shredded by him in an OH regional playoff game in high school.
The Bears hit a home run in the first round with Smith, who was widely considered one of the three or four best players in the class. That's what I want to do. "In 2012, if you would have asked six years ago that I'd be blocking for him, I would say you're lying". That's the craziest thing I ever heard. But in the context of the Bears' futility in the post-Lovie Smith era, the nearly universal day-after acclaim for Pace's 2018 draft is in itself a step forward for a team that has been so easy to bash - and deservedly so - in recent seasons. Like all of Ferentz's protégés, Daniels is technically sound and shows good quickness.
Jury Finds Bill Cosby Guilty of Aggravated Indecent Assault
The jury came back with guilty verdicts on all three counts of aggravated indecent assault Thursday in the trial of Bill Cosby . This jury began deliberating Wednesday around 11 a.m., and worked for more than 14 hours over two days to reach the verdict.
Pace is on a roll, and those are things we know.
Miller had no FBS offers coming out of Christian Brothers High School in Memphis and opted to walk on at his hometown school. In Justin Fuente and Paxton Lynch's past year at Memphis, Miller caught 47 balls for 694 yards and five touchdowns.
Fitts had strong performances in the Senior Bowl and the NFL Combine, but his injury history likely played a big part to him remaining undrafted until the sixth round.
Pacers' Oladipo: LeBron goaltended on my shot
I mean, Oladipo is an All-Star for a reason and he puts so much pressure on your defense. "That layup is huge". He played for 22 minutes in this game-and scored 22 points on 11 shots-before even attempting a jumper.
