Daniel McCullers NFL Draft Profile

Daniel McCullers NFL Draft Profile

Daniel McCullers, Senior, Defensive Tackle, Tennessee



Daniel McCullers is a bit raw and still will be by the time the 2014 NFL Draft rolls around, but he has so many things that NFL teams love and that are difficult to teach. Standing 6-8 and weighing in at 351 pounds is the one thing everybody will notice first. The defensive tackle can swallow up opposing ball carriers with ease.

McCullers started his collegiate career at Georgia Military College. After a couple successful seasons at the junior college level, McCullers was a highly regarded player moving into the Division I ranks. He found a nice place at Tennessee where a big body was needed to clog the middle of their 3-4 defense. McCullers fit the bill and earned seven starts as a junior. On the year he totaled 39 tackles, 5.5 tackles-for-loss and one sack.


Final Projection:

McCullers needs to have another productive year in 2013. He is only getting better with time and he should make a name for himself on an improved Tennessee defense. The Volunteers are switching to a 4-3 scheme this year, so McCullers will get some more help on the line. He will also gain some valuable experience in a new defense and that could put him on the radar for NFL teams who run a 3-4 or a 4-3 defense. With his size, impressive footwork and potential, McCullers could turn into a solid first round pick with a good senior season.
