Professional career

Daniels was rated the 25th best tight end in the 2017 NFL Draft by NFLDraftScout.com.[8] Lance Zierlein of NFL.com predicted that he would be drafted in the seventh round or be a priority free agent, stating that "Daniels' combination of athletic ability and physical traits figures to land him as a third-day draft pick, but he will have to learn to run routes more effectively as a matchup tight end in the NFL or he will find himself stuck on the practice squad for a couple of seasons."[9]
