Former Iowa center James Daniels was selected No. 39 overall by the Chicago Bears in Thursday night’s NFL Draft.

Daniels, the Warren, Ohio, native, was a preseason All-American and preseason All-Big Ten selection in 2017. He followed his brother, LeShun Daniels, Jr., to Iowa from the state of Ohio, and he saw playing time immediately as a freshman in 2015, playing left guard. The coaching staff moved Daniels to center in 2016, and he was named a third-team All-Big Ten performer.

At 6-foot-3 and 306 pounds, Daniels possesses great movement for his size, and he should make an impact rather quickly in the NFL.

Exiting high school, Daniels was rated a 4-star prospect, and he was ranked as the country’s No. 6 overall center and the state’s No. 18 overall player, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
