Jaguars trade DT McDaniel to Miami

Today, the Dolphins traded one of their three 7th round draft picks (the specific pick is not yet known) to the Jaguars in return for DT Tony McDaniel.

Tony McDaniel (6'7, 310 lbs.) was originally an undrafted rookie out of Tennessee. He has three seasons of NFL experience under his belt and is still only 24 years old.

In those three seasons, he has appeared in 25 games with 3 starts. Last season, he started three games and recorded 16 tackles, 1/2 sack, and 2 pass defenses.

Injury issues are a huge concern with McDaniel as he has already missed 23 games in his career due to various wrist, hip, and knee injuries.

He's probably too tall to play NT, so he should compete for a spot on the depth chart at DE with Rodrique Wright and Lionel Dotson.
