Former LSU quarterback Jayden Daniels could be one of the first quarterbacks off the board next month in the NFL Draft, and he’s already turning heads on social media.

NFL fans were quick to wonder about Daniels after a picture of his throwing arm went viral. Fans focused on the way his elbow looked as he threw in a few photos. 

Pictures appeared to show Daniels’ elbow protruding outward and away from the rest of his arm.

“He’s going to be so committed to taking care of himself that you’re not going to have to worry about size or [if] he doesn’t weigh enough,” Kelly said Wednesday, via CBS Sports. “Lamar (Jackson) has done a pretty good job with his size. (Patrick) Mahomes — I wouldn’t consider him a giant. Because he (Daniels) is going to get the ball out to the playmakers and make plays. For Washington.”

The former Tigers star was the 2023 Heisman Trophy winner. He threw for 3,812 yards, 40 touchdowns and only four interceptions last season. LSU finished the season 10-3 as Garrett Nussmeier replaced Daniels to win the ReliaQuest Bowl.
