Meet the Rookies: James Daniels
Growing up in Warren, Ohio, with a dad who played football at Ohio State University, becoming a Buckeye seems like a natural fit, but not for James Daniels. Daniels committed to the Iowa Hawkeyes as a four-star recruit to play alongside his big brother. His versatility as an offensive lineman and controlled movements as a run blocker caught the attention of NFL scouts. One thing he couldn’t control was his emotions when the Bears called Daniels in the second round of the 2018 NFL draft.
