Jamar Chaney
Round 7, Pick 220
Position: ILB
Class: 5Sr
Conference: Southeastern
HT: 6-0.5
WT: 242
40 Time: 4.55
Biography: Three-year starter who missed the 2008 season with a broken ankle. Led the team in tackles as a senior, posting 90/4.5/2 while also intercepting two passes. Junior totals of 2007 included a team-leading 89 tackles. Awarded All-Conference honors that season.

Positives: Explosive, hard-hitting linebacker who makes plays against the pass and run. Remains disciplined with assignments, displays a good head for the ball, and works to make plays. Fast moving sideline to sideline, breaks down well, and nicely flows to the action. Gets depth on pass drops, quick footed moving in reverse, and keeps his head on a swivel, displaying good instincts. Quickly changes direction, easily redirects to ball-carriers, and wraps up tackling.

Negatives: Very slow adjusting off the initial hit then getting back to playing form. Possesses poor hands for the interception. Easily blocked from the action.

Analysis: Chaney did a terrific job returning from injury last season and really presents himself as a potential three-down linebacker for the next level. He's a hard-working player with good athleticism and football intelligence. Cheney has the possibility to be used at several linebacker spots in a number of systems, which will only enhance his value to NFL teams.

Projection: 3rd
