Biography: Three-year starter awarded all-conference honors since his sophomore season. Senior totals included 35 tackles/2.5 tackles for loss/1 sacks in eight games after he put up 41/3.5/2 as a junior.
Positives: Massive interior lineman with natural power and the ability to clog the middle of the field. Takes up a lot of space, plays with relatively good pad level and keeps his feet driving up the field. Gets his hands up and works them to keep defenders away. Tough to move off the line and overwhelms opponents.
Negatives: Rumbles around the field and is ineffective in anything other than in a small area. Too often neutralized or controlled by a single blocker. Lacks playing balance.
Analysis: Chapman looks the part and occasionally plays up to his ability, but he really did not dominate the lower level of competition as many expected. He does not show a nasty attitude and must prove he's more than a big body on the defensive line to have a chance at the next level.
