Pick Analysis: The Seahawks get a big, athletic safety in Kam Chancellor. The Virginia Tech standout is adept at playing in the box, and his combination of size and speed make him a strong candidate to emerge as a key contributor on special teams.

Overview

Chancellor has been a very productive safety for the Hokies over the past three years. He has an outstanding combination of size and strength for the position. Chancellor is more of a box safety in that he is much better defending the run than in coverage. He has decent range off the hash and could be effective in combination zone schemes but may be a liability in pure man coverage schemes. He uses his hands well to ward off blockers when filling the alley and flashes to make the big hit. Chancellor is inconsistent with his angles and instincts with the ball in the air. Chancellor is a good football player and should be effective in the right system at the next level. Chancellor should contribute early as a special teams player and a goal line safety.


Strengths

Chancellor has outstanding size for the safety position. Plays with great strength and has the toughness needed to consistently help up in the box in run support. Has been a highly productive player. Durability is not a concern. Exhibits a really impressive motor, refuses to be blocked and plays hard through the whistle.

Weaknesses

Chancellor can play over aggressive at times, take poor angles and is susceptible to play fakes. Taller player who could improve his pad level. Needs to be lower in his back peddle. Is more comfortable in the box and doesn’t possess the coverage skills, ball skills and instincts to be consistently relied upon against the pass.
