Daniel McCullers NFL Draft

Daniel McCullers is not a small man.

NEPD Contributor: Matthew Mochal

Daniel McCullers came into his first year in Knoxville with high expectations, and may have exceeded those with his impressive season in which he had 39 total tackles with 5.5 for a loss and one sack. Playing in all 12 games, primarily as the NT in Tennessee’s 3-4 he showed the ability to be the traditional plugger NT but also flashes rare burst and closing speed for a man his size [6’6 377 pounds].

He shows the versatility of a prospect who could play all over the line in either the 3-4 or 4-3 [DT/NT/5T], where he is able to use his size and strength to contain the rush to the sideline, while also eating gaps and linemen freeing up pass rushers and linebackers behind him.
