Mike Daniels had his most productive season in the NFL in 2015 and was rewarded by his peers. The Iowa product landed at No. 95 on NFL Network's "Top 100 Players of 2016" and was praised heavily by Oakland offensive tackle Donald Penn.

An abundance of other players endorsed Daniels, whose high school wrestling background was featured in the package highlighting his selection. NFL Network also showed Daniels beef with Washington offensive tackle Trent Williams on the field and his brash attitude.

Daniels, who lined up at 3-tech during the regular season, recorded 27 tackles and four sacks in the 2015-16 season. The former fourth-round pick has developed into becoming a staple on the defensive line for Green Bay and gets necessary help on the defensive line with the addition of Kenny Clark.

This might be Daniels' first appearance on the Top 100 Players of 2016 list, but the 6-foot, 291-pound lineman has upside to progress.

He is sure to be the first of several Packers on this year's list. In 2015, the team had six players on the list, topped out by Aaron Rodgers at #2.
