Leo Chenal Scouting Report

"Yoked up, gap crashing throwback that ate his athletic testing but isn't as field fast as he timed and could be a matchup liability in coverage."

 

Strengths:

Yoked up, gap crasher with impressive strength and recognition. Secure tackler that closes quickly. Sheds in a blink and wades through trash well.


Effective blitzer that forces big boy blocks. Solid awareness in zone coverage. Ate his athletic testing.

 

Weaknesses:

Clunky change or direction and tight in space. Despite timed speed, isn't field fast and is a matchup liability in coverage. One year wonder.

 

Overall:

Throwback style guy who's recognition and power vs the run are his best attributes. Finds the ball efficiently in traffic and is a sound tackler. Instincts are generally on point despite his inexperience.


Flashes competence in zone coverage and gets in passing lanes but is likely a liability in man. He lacks great speed and is clunky trying to change direction.
