Daniels is more prototypical center and was a center in college but was put at guard and did well as a rookie eventually when he was put in.

I can understand not wanting a rookie at center when you are putting in a new offense, grooming a young QB and want your line calls correct.

If HH says it is the way to go I would call it close to Gospel.
Agree 100%. They weren't throwing a 20 year old rookie in at C, they eased him in getting him NFL reps at an easier position mentally. Now that he's got a little seasoning in the NFL and in this offense, he'll move to his natural position. Makes sense to me.

Has anyone seen Daniels this offseason, dude looks like a monster. I think the NFL offseason strength and conditioning program has really benefited him. I look forward to seeing him and Whitehair playing at their more natural positions.

If, and it's a BIG if, Long can stay healthy this year. We should have one of the best interior OL in the league. I think Whitehair is going to stop thinking about playing C, and just start mauling defensive linemen. Much like Long on the other side. I also think Daniels is going to kill it at Center.

I haven't either other than the pick of him with his diploma at Iowa's graduation day.
