This undersized linebacker out of Clemson plays much bigger than his 6-foot-1, 220-pound frame would indicate. He put together a monster senior season once he became a full-time starter, recording 88 tackles, five sacks and two pick-sixes.
His 47 career special teams tackles is tied for the all-time Clemson mark. O’Daniel was a second-team All-ACC player as a senior.
From a Vikings perspective, O’Daniel is the type of athletic third-day linebacker Minnesota usually covets.
