He's really good.
Patriots wouldn’t be able to afford him without letting depth go. The Pats got Joe Thuney and Malcolm Mitchell with the pick they got for him and that helped win SB 51.As a Pats fan, I wish he never tried synthetic marijuana.
Career statistics in NFLI was looking something else up about chandler and came across this piece. It’s a great read loo
So just recently, I saw Todd McShay and Mel Kiper's new mock drafts. For the most part, they made sense, or at least more than their earlier mocks...bleacherreport.com
I was surprised he was considered a first round pick back then too. Of course, I do not consider myself a draft guru and have never been payed to be an NFL scout.
His combine numbers didn't suggest athletic freak though. He seems to be a bit like J.J. Watt where his athleticism translates better to the field than drills.After the season I didn’t think 1st round either but as the draft process went on it seemed like he was getting talked about a lot. A lot of teams were looking for athletic freaks with good measurables and he fit that perfectly. I remember watching the draft and it seemed like everyone was saying someone would grab him before the 1st round ended. So when the Bears passed on him I remembered being so mad because i had a feeling he was going to get picked pretty soon after them.

It's weird that didn't translate to better numbers when he was here.I still remember when he was wearing a knee brace against West Virginia in a regular season game and he overpowered a double team and sacked their QB and was like WOW, what the hell just happened there.
Kid was a monster and was light when he signed to Cuse, worked his ass of to gain weight and got up to 255-260 and dominated.
