Biography: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after posting 68/2/5. Junior totals included 52 tackles after a career-best 79 as a sophomore.
Positives: King-sized safety best playing downhill and defending the run. Takes good angles to the action, shows a burst of closing speed, and can be a dominant run-stuffing safety. Displays solid sideline-to-sideline range, works to get involved in the action, and easily brings opponents down on initial contact. Possesses a physical nature to his game and easily boxes out opposing receivers to defend the throw. Effectively reads the action, quick up the field, and a hard hitter who aggressively lays the shoulder pads into opponents.
Negatives: More of a loping defensive back who lacks quickness. Possesses marginal ball skills, struggles with his back to the action, and rarely gets his head around to locate the pass. Lacks great speed to the flanks. All too often does too much hitting rather than wrap-up tackling.
Analysis: Chancellor has been a productive run defender for Virginia Tech and is an imposing figure in the middle of the field. His downhill playing style leads most to believe he's best suited in a zone system. Chancellor has also been a productive on special teams, a skill he must transfer to the next level.
