Daniel Bellinger Bio

Daniel Bellinger was a 2-star prospect that was recruited to play linebacker. From Las Vegas, NV he chose San Diego State over the Cal Golden Bears. The 6-4 220lb prospect was converted to tight end in freshman season. After learning the position for a year, Bellinger was the top tight end on the depth chart in 2019 totaling 15 receptions for 201 yards and 3 scores. Over his final 2 seasons, the Aztecs would increase their offensive production, but modestly. In his sophomore year they were ranked 113th out of 130 teams with 21. 2 points per game. By his senior season, the Aztecs were putting up 27.4 points per game ranking 78th out of 130 teams. He did his part as a senior by improving his catch rate to 67.39%

Invited to the Senior Bowl, Bellinger was voted the top TE by the opposite squad’s defensive players. At the Combine he measured at 6-5 253lbs, 30 more pounds than from when he was freshman. That didn’t slow him down as his workout metrics were all above average percentiles. The defensive focus for San Diego State is what muted Bellinger’s production. He’s an athletic tight end with good burst and speed. Projected to go in the 6th round, he’s an interesting waiver pickup if he makes an NFL roster when training camp cuts happen.

Daniel Bellinger was selected in the 4th round of the 2022 NFL Draft by the New York Giants. He instantly becomes a 2nd round pick in rookie drafts. He joins a very open tight end room in New York with Ricky Seals-Jones not long for the league. Bellinger will likely see decent playing time in his rookie season.
