Prospect Profile: Matt McChesney
Full Name: Matt McChesney School: Colorado Pos: DT Ht: 6-4 Wt: 307 40: 5.08 Year: 5Sr Bio: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after totaling 59/11/7. Pos: Nice sized interior lineman who plays with a good degree of athleticism. Gets underneath opponents, plays with leverage and tough to move off the point. Strong in his lower body, drives up the field playing with balance and bulrushes opponents off the line. Consistently focused on in the middle of the field and holds his ground against double teams. Displays good hand technique jolting opponents to keep them away. Quick to diagnose the action and locating the ball. Redirects to the ball carrier, squares and wraps up at the point of attack. Neg: Lacks the quick first step off the snap, not a sudden defender and marginal skills rushing the passer. Stiff and lacks the ability to quickly alter his angle of attack. Marginal skills moving laterally to the flanks. Analysis: A legitimate pro prospect flying under the radar screen, McChesney has the size and skill to play at the next level. Offers potential in a system which rotates its defensive tackles yet at the same time can be kept on the field as a two gap lineman.
