Most everybody has Poe and Ta'amu as the top NT's, but after them do you think Chapman might be the next guy? At 6'1 310lbs here isnt near the size as the 2 previous prospects, but he has shown his ability to make a difference as a NT in the 3-4 while at Alabama.

Would you rank propsects like Brandon Thompson or Mike Martin ahead of him? Or are they more 4-3 NT's???

I love this guy! Does the dirty work... I could see Pitt drafting him.

That's Clay Matthews level intense. I'm not sure I see a starting caliber nose tackle, but that's the kind of guy I want if I'm building a team.

Wow. Mad respect.

Even though this shows how tough of a kid he is, this will undoubtedly end up hurting his stock. He wont be able to workout and be at the combine, and some teams will likely forget about him. If a team does there homework, I can see Chapman being a 4/5 round guy...

Wow. Mad respect.

Must be nice to have it either be that minor or to be a physiological freak. When I tore my ACL and meniscus I couldn't even limp on it let alone play a football game.

I didn't think something like that was even possible in all honestly. It's not like he finished one game, it was eight. And a demanding position like NT where he had to live off of his push and drive.

What exactly does the guy need to do at the combine other than bench press. There's already enough proof in the tape that he can handle double-teams against elite competition.

He won't see the third round.
