At USF they won two consecutive bowl games on the same roster with two different head coaches. Four years later, quarterback B.J. Daniels and cornerback Kayvon Webster will be featured in the Super Bowl.
Both Bulls were taken in the 2013 NFL Draft. Daniels was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the seventh round, Webster by the Denver Broncos in the third round.
While Webster became heavily featured with the team that drafted him due to injuries in the Broncos’ secondary, Daniels was put on waivers by the 49ers then picked up by the Seattle Seahawks.
Daniels impressed during the preseason with San Francisco, completing 13 of his 21 passes for 178 yards and three touchdowns.
Though he hasn’t taken a snap as a Seahawk all season being on the practice squad, Daniels’ years with USF aren’t far behind him. In USF’s record books, he stands third all-time in passing yards (8,433) and completions (649) while he finished first all-time in rushing touchdowns (25) and second all-time in total offense (10,501).
