Joey Daniels (‘22) Shows Shades of Russell Wilson

Joey Daniels is a promising quarterback prospect hailing from Pennsylvania. He shows great anticipation and consistently gets the ball out of his hands at the top of his drop.

In August, GMTM’s Joey Grant and former USC quarterback Max Browne evaluated his tape live on Twitch. Here’s what they thought:

Immediately, Joey made a throw that impressed Max. He dropped back and threw a perfect ball to his receiver breaking to the sideline. He put it up and away in a spot where only his WR could go up and make the play, and his receiver went up and did just that. This was a big time throw and the first of many on Joey’s tape.

On this play, Daniels hits the top of his drop and drives a throw to his receiver running a post over the middle. There are three defenders in the area, but throwing with anticipation allows him to hit his receiver before they are able to close the window.

Max noticed and called out that Daniels shows impressive timing, as he is never seen waiting for a receiver to get open. Throughout the tape, he consistently was throwing receivers open and getting the ball out of his hands before they made their breaks.

This is a trait that becomes increasingly important as the quality of competition continues to ramp up. At the next level, increasingly athletic defenders will have better recovery speed if they do get beat so throwing with anticipation is paramount.

Speaking of athleticism, Joey possesses the requisite athleticism to be successful at the next level. He shows promising skills and mobility when running with the ball on this play. Joey senses the pocket closing in and takes off for a big run to pick up the first down. He doesn’t stop there, however, as he sees an opportunity to pick up even more yardage and scurries around defenders for an extra 15 yards.

Joey says he models his game after Russell Wilson, and that is clear when watching him play. Even when he is scrambling, he keeps his eyes up and is able to still deliver on-target throws to hit receivers in tight windows.

He’s clearly a smart player, as his film showcases his ability to process multiple reads and still deliver on-time, accurate throws. Seeing this production as a sophomore is a great sign for his future development, as he is performing at a high-level against good competition.

Key Takeaways:

• Smart, efficient quarterback who specializes in quickly getting the ball into the hands of his playmakers
• Delivers accurate throws into tight windows
• Athletic enough to make defenses pay with his legs

Joey Daniels is a QB prospect who should see his stock continue to rise as he goes into his senior year. He is athletic, can read the defense, and constantly puts his receivers in position to be successful. As he continues to grow his game, he will surely prove to be a talented quarterback at the next level.
