Daniels = raw talent. Likens = raw QB coach

From a scouting report - Daniels has all the raw talent. Mobile, fluid, strong arm and decent accuracy. But it goes on to say:

ŇDaniels isnŐt perfect by any means. While he does do a good job using scrambling ability both to pass and to run, he has questionable decision making at times and can get a little bit Johnny Manziel-esque reckless, resulting in plays from off balance throws where he doesnŐt have his feet set, to throwing it up into quadruple coverage (watch the video), to throwing cross field to an open receiver that was open only because he scrambled for about half of a quarter on one play. We saw with Manziel, this creativeness can be a blessing but can also get you into a lot of trouble. In essence, Daniels has amazing playmaking ability, but definitely needs a fair bit of coaching in order to hone his oozing amounts of raw talent.Ó

So is Likens, a career WR coach, the guy to refine this gem? Here is the dilemma, Likens recruited Daniels and the kid expects Likens to be his coach. Also, Edwards has inferred that he likes the way his present staff has jelled. There does not appear to be seasoned QB coach on the present staff. Will the ASU NFL model front office have the courage to make a seemingly required adjustment?
