Despite playing at the FCS level, 2020 NFL Draft hopeful Jeremy Chinn must be talked about with the other power five safeties.
This year’s crop of safeties in the 2020 NFL Draft all bring specific skill sets and talents, however one possesses elite size and athleticism that may make him the gem of the draft. Despite playing at an FCS level at Southern Illinois, Jeremy Chinn looks prepared to make a splash in the 2020 NFL Draft, and may even crash the first round.
Prospects with the potential of Chinn do not come around often, making him what appears to be a top-60 lock at the very least when the draft rolls around in less than two weeks. A certified baller, Chinn has taken advantage of every opportunity given to him, from the Senior Bowl to the NFL Scouting Combine, as he has seen his draft stock soar over the past few months.
While fellow small school and Reese’s Senior Bowl standout Kyle Dugger also possesses a great talent for a division-II player, Chinn’s size and range separates the two. Throughout the pre-draft process, Chinn has made one thing clear: he deserves the same love and hype as the power five trio of Alabama’s Xavier McKinney, LSU’s Grant Delpit, and Minnesota’s Antoine Winfield Jr.
Here is a detailed scouting report on the small school prospect with big time potential in Southern Illinois’ Jeremy Chinn.
