Plenty of top players are in Orlando this week and Daniel talked about who he thought was impressive.

"O.J. Howard is a real good blocker and is a tough guy to go against."

"The linebacker from Notre Dame, Alex (Anzalone) and a couple of the recruits from Florida and a couple of Alabama recruits. Really it's been everybody talking to me."

Daniel is learning and picking up tendencies from the offensive linemen and will use it to his advantage.

"I want to get better each day and focus in on my game. I have been focusing on the offensive line and what they do and the techniques they use. Once I go against a linemen one time I feel like I know what he is going to do and I can progress."
