Chaisson is one player who just jumps out in games at you. That lead me to taking a harder look at him and the more I watch him the more I like this kid. If he tests as well as I suspect then I think he will be a top 10 pick. I honestly think he’s better than Josh Allen was last year.
Personally I think he’s the perfect fit for MP’s defense because he can play with his hand in the dirt and out of the Jack LBer spot. He’s a better pass coverage defender than you’d think. He was frequently paired up against TE’s in coverage and did well.
As a pass rusher he has an amazing first step and a relentless motor. He has a burst of speed that OT’s are going to have a difficult time handling. He has some pass rush moves too and he uses his hands extremely well. I think he’s a lot better than the stats suggest.
He’s pretty good in run support and sets a solid edge. But if there’s any knock on this kid I’d say it’s here. He’s pretty good at run defense and he has a lot of range, playing well in tracking and pursuit but he does sometimes get swallowed up by strong blockers.
Personally I see a kid that has a huge upside and could very possibly become one of the best NFL player in this draft class.
If he tests well at the combine I think he will be in talks as a top 10 pick. I like him a lot. Especially in a trade down scenario.
What are your thoughts on him?
