WESTON (WAOW) - Last week we had one of the Packers' two 4th round picks, Jerron McMillian, on Pack Attack. This week we'll be joined by the other 2012 4th round pick, defensive end Mike Daniels.

Daniels has two sacks this year and as of Sunday a 43-yard touchdown. As Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford drew his arm back to throw midway through the second quarter and with the Lions up 14-0, the ball slipped out of his hands. Daniels was right there to scoop it up, rumbling 43 yards for the score that pulled Green Bay within 14-10. He is Green Bay's first rookie defensive lineman to return a fumble for a TD since 1941.

His Lambeau Leap needs some work, however. Daniels only managed to get about halfway up the wall, hanging there as fans pounded him on the back.

Daniels was part of the 2007 Iowa recruiting class that featured Bryan Bulaga and Dezman Moses. 

The following comes from Daniels' bio:

  • An undersized but especially productive college player who starred as an interior pass rusher for the Hawkeyes, posting a team-high 24½ tackles for loss and 13 sacks from 2010-11.
  • Earned second-team All-Big Ten Conference honors from the league's coaches following his senior season in 2011 after starting all 13 games and finishing with a career-high 67 tackles (32 solo) and nine sacks. Sack total ranked third in the Big Ten and 24th nationally.
  • Joined Philadelphia Eagles sixth-round pick WR Marvin McNutt in representing Iowa at the 2012 Senior Bowl, participating as members of the North squad in the all-star game.
  • Father, Mike Sr., played baseball at Rutgers-Camden, and his brother, Sean, is a junior LB at Temple University.

Join Sports Director Lauren Magiera, Bryon Graff and Mike Daniels at 6:30 p.m. Monday at Dale's Weston Lanes. You can also watch it Tuesday night at 6:30 on Newsline 9.
