49ers Select QB B.J. Daniels


With the first of three selections in the seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft, the 49ers chose South Florida quarterback B.J. Daniels with pick No. 237 overall.

The 6-foot-1, 217-pound senior posted 59 touchdowns in four seasons with the Bulls. He also rushed for 2,068 rushing yards and 25 touchdowns in four seasons.

Daniels, 23, is first all-time in USF history with 25 rushing scores. He's second all-time in rushing attempts (526), fourth all-time in rushing yards (2,068) and third all-time in passing attempts (1,132), completions (649) and passing yards (8,433).

Daniels led the Bulls to a win over Notre Dame in the season opener in 2011 when the Irish were ranked No. 16 in the nation. 

The USF quarterback started the first nine games of 2012 before suffering a broken leg. Daniels completed 165 of 290 pass attempts (56.9 completion percentage) for 2,075 yards, 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in his final collegiate season.
