BIOGRAPHY

Carlson had a chance to one of the few specialists with the skills to leave college early to lock up a top-100 slot in the NFL Draft. He was the SEC Special Teams Player of the Year and first-team all-conference selection in 2016 and 2017, and league's leading scorer in both seasons. He garnered Lou Groza Award finalist honors for the third straight year after converting 23-of-31 field goal attempts in 2017 (4-of-8 from 50-plus yards, three blocked) and all 57 extra point tries. He made 28-of-32 field goal attempts (4-of-7 from 50-plus yards) in 2016 and all 44 point-afters. Carlson made 23-of-27 attempts (four of 50-plus yards, with a 56-yarder in their bowl game) as a sophomore second-team All-American and first-team All-SEC pick in 2015 and went 18-for-24 as a redshirt freshman. He went 5-for-5 against Alabama that season, but missed two against Wisconsin in the Outback Bowl to help the Badgers get the victory in overtime. He punted in 2014, as well, averaging 42 yards a kick. Over his career, Carlson has converted all 141 extra point attempts and sent 156-of-222 kickoffs for touchbacks. He was a second-team Academic All-American as a junior. Daniel's brother, Anders, signed with the Tigers for the 2017 season; he'll get his chance next year.
