Former Iowa defensive lineman Mike Daniels was selected in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft, as the Green Bay Packers took him with the 132nd overall pick. Daniels is the fourth defensive lineman to be drafted in the last two years after Adrian Clayborn, Christian Ballard and Karl Klug were all taken in last year’s draft. He’s also the first defensive player from Iowa taken in this year’s draft.

Daniels started 21 games at defensive tackle over the past two seasons, including all 13 games in 2011. As a senior, he recorded 67 tackles (13.5 for lost yardage) and nine sacks, five of which came late last season in games against Purdue and Oklahoma. For his career, Daniels had 123 tackles and 15.5 sacks.

Last season, the Packers went 15-1 and lost to the New York Giants in the divisional round of the playoffs.
