Jamar Chaney is a very underrated player. He is athletic, but unlike most athletic LB's he has great size. He is at his best in space and making plays in coverage. He has great instincts and is a sure tackler. He will struggle against the run at the next level. If he we're moved outside to WLB this wouldn't be a problem but he will get pushed around by guards in the NFL if he lined up at MLB. He cannot shed blocks and the only way he avoids them are with his quickness. I still think he is a really good player, but will have to move back to his more natural position at WLB.

1-poor, 2-weak, 3-above average, 4-very good, 5-elite
