TJ Rayam DT Boston College Scouting Report

Position rank: 24
40-yard dash time: 5.31-seconds
Height: 6-0, Weight: 290 lbs
Strengths
  • Played with good leverage, even on the nose, despite average bulk. Hustle defender with a good bull rush inside that can close and get home when quarterbacks leave the pocket.
  • Can make the impressive chest-to-chest bear hug tackle in the hole due to his ability to wreak havoc in the backfield.
  • Lower than offensive lineman on every short-yardage play. Good agility and ability to change direction for his size.
  • Short, stumpy build so he typically wins the leverage battle. When he does so, Chapman can be tough to move, even showing the ability to handle double-teams.
  • Lacks the size to compete as a traditional defensive tackle and is a projection to any other position.
Weaknesses
  • Has limited range and is more of a run-stuffer who won't make many plays in the backfield - a mid-round, prospect who should be able to offer depth along the defensive line in any scheme.
  • Good strength, though his marginal arm length limits his ability to grab hold of ballcarriers as they run by.
  • Must improve hand use and read-and-react skills. Lacks the violent hands to shed and can be eliminated by double-team blocks.
  • Isn't able to consistently shed blocks and makes plays in the hole.
  • Does not test offensive linemen with quickness or strong initial punch.
