2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DAN VITALE: Northwestern, 6006 239 4.63. Four-year starter from Wheaton, IL. A three-time All-Academic Big-10 player during his career. Played the “Superback” position in Northwestern’s spread offensive scheme. Lines up all over the field - running back, wingback, slot, wide receiver, and is an effective hand catching receiver in all of his roles. Soft hands to pluck the ball. Has a rocked up physique where he can take and give punishment. A productive athlete who will fill some team’s need. A ball club may have to find a role for him in their sub packages. He had no carries from scrimmage in 2015, nor any special teams’ tackles. His role in the offense was more of a move-the-chains, check down, pass catcher who was a weapon all over the field. He is not a true short-necked blocking fullback. Senior Bowl notes: A fullback/H-back who caught the ball in his hands out of the backfield. Needs to sharpen his pass blocking skills. Can improve his route running by making his routes and cuts sharper to separate from a defender. 2015 stats: 33 rec, 355 yds, 10.7 ypr, 4 TD. OSR:7/24. Sixth/seventh round. (A-31 3/4, H-9 3/4, BP-30, SS-4.12).
