2013 NFL Draft: 49ers Select QB B.J Daniels in Seventh Round

The San Francisco 49ers took quarterback B.J. Daniels out of South Florida with the 237th pick of the 2013 NFL Draft.

Daniels, who spent four years in college, impressed scouts at his school’s Pro Day when displayed his skills at wide receiver and defensive back along with quarterback.

Here is his scouting report, courtesy of CBS Sports’ Dane Brugler: 

Although he is listed at just six-foot tall, Daniels is a very athletic passer, using his legs to elude pressure and pick up yards on the ground when needed (1,634 career rushing yards). He is a poised and confident player in the huddle, but has streaky timing as a passer and struggles under pressure when forced to accelerate his delivery.

If he wishes to have any future at the next level, Daniels needs to improve his accuracy, specifically the ball placement to his targets with a career completion percentage under 58.0%. He is a long-shot to get drafted at this point, but he has his senior season to show NFL scouts that he can stay healthy and consistent.

 The 49ers currently have three quarterbacks on the roster: Colin Kaepernick, Colt McCoy, and Scott Tolzien. Will Daniels eventually work his way up the depth chart?
