Great call on te injuries. That could prove to be an issue, especially at the NFl level.
What I thought made Chandler potentially special was his hips and athelticism. In that way, he's definitely like Pierre paul. And Pierre paul I don't even think was the 2nd best player on his defense at USF. I think Allen (safety with the Eagles) and even Selvie was better. For whatever reason, the Giants really got it to click with him. I just didn't see the effort he shows now with the Giants.
Chandler was crazy to evaluate though because his hips seem to operate independent of his body. His lower half could still be moving forward at the same time his upper half of his body was getting beaten by the offensive lineman. Either way, he was strong and quick. His quickness wasn't elite though... But because of the athleticism and weird body type, he seems to be able to find a way to beat offensive linemen. Actually, much like Coples. Coples is extremely difficult to block on the inside.
I would've been happy with Chandler, but the injury stuff was the red flag with me. I would've been happy with Coples, but the mental thing scared me. (It's possible though that he's just someone like Robinson Cano where you can't tell that he gives a ****, but he actually does). Melvin INgram I liked more than all of them, but the body type scared me.
I still predict Ingram ends up the best, but Coples has the best upside. Chandler is an exciting guy though and it does suck he went to New England. Was hoping they could make another ****ty pick like Solder (and so many others over the last several years)
