2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Kam Chancellor, FS, Virginia Tech

There is not much Kam Chancellor has not done. Arriving at Virginia Tech in 2006, he worked at quarterback. Then he was moved to corner, where he spent his freshman season playing spot duty. In 2007 he earned the starting job at the Hokies rover position. Even with a ton of talent around him on the defensive side of the ball that season, Chancellor ended the year with 79 total tackles. However, Chancellor's final destination was not at the rover position. Prior to the 2008 season, he moved to free safety. At 6-4 and 230 pounds, Chancellor is big and strong and rarely fails to deliver the big hit. He has a decent amount of speed and has all the measurables that NFL teams will be looking for. Chancellor could have gone pro after his junior season, but he made the right decision returning to the Hokies. While Chancellor did a fine job in 2008 at the free safety position, he is getting noticeably more comfortable there during the 2009 campaign. Chancellor has found his home at free safety and now the NFL knows where he fits. Chancellor should be considered one of the top two or three free safeties in this class and if he keeps putting up big numbers in 2009, he has a slight chance of being a first-round selection. 2/1 Update: Chancellor had good East-West Shrine workouts and he is bigger and stronger than most other top free safeties in this class. However, his lack of speed is a concern and he will need to put up some great times at the NFL Combine to sneak into the second round. Even if he runs a 4.6, as expected, he should still be a third or fourth rounder.
