Missouri Tiger quarterback Chase Daniel made the rounds on the ESPN family of networks, hyping himself prior to the NFL combines. This morning on ESPN’s First Take, Daniel talked about what would make him a good NFL quarterback.
He quickly beat down the old height issue saying he measured 6’0 in front of NFL scouts, there is nothing he can do about it. He also added, quarterbacks don’t throw over people, they throw through windows.
Daniel said he would be a good NFL quarterback because he is a leader who has the ability to lift the talent of players around him. He would also play somewhere else other than QB and says if he doesn’t get drafted, he would love to be a coach.
He was also quick to stand up for Jeremy Maclin, who ESPN’s Mel Kuiper says will be the 7th overall pick going to Oakland. Daniel says Maclin should go ahead of Michael Crabtree of Texas Tech because he’s never seen Crabtree return a kick.
Daniel continues his schedule this afternoon:

A couple of Missouri Tigers defenders will try to impress NFL scouts this Saturday at the Senior Bowl in Mobile Alabama. Defensive lineman Ziggy Hood and William Moore will be on the field. Hood, 10 th on MU’s list for quarterback sacks. Moore, who played with an ankle injury most of the year could be a second round pick. His stock may have dropped after only one interception this past season.
