Daniel is a prolific ball-winning midfielder, an astute decision maker and executes well by hand or foot.
An U18 All Australian, Daniel arrived at the Kennel from South Adelaide via pick 46 overall in the 2014 NAB AFL Draft.
After debuting in Round 14, 2015 and playing 10 games, Daniel played 24 games in season 2016 and finished runner-up in the NAB AFL Rising Star award to Sydney's Callum Mills.
Daniel had the last laugh though, as a member of the Western Bulldogs' Grand Final winning side that defeated the Swans to claim the 2016 AFL Premiership.
Playing 20 games in both 2017 and 2018 predominantly as a midfield/forward, Daniel transitioned to a full-time role in defense in 2019.
Daniel was perhaps on track for All Australian honours before a hamstring injury saw him miss six games, but enjoyed an outstanding season nonetheless.
Much like fellow half-back Johannisen, Daniel was a key distributor with the ball. He led the Bulldogs for rebound-50s and effective kicks per game, and was behind just Marcus Bontempelli for metres gained.
Daniel will remain at VU Whitten Oval until 2022 after inking a three-year extension during season 2019.
