He looks real good on film, plays a little cocky, good blitzer, tackles well and plays the pass just the way a true safety should. Excellent speed and range .
Just a note: Chinn already qualifies physically (shuttle/3c pending) with Seattle's benchmarks for outside corner. One of the few prospects in the class that does this year. And really doesn't merely qualify -- but highly qualifies. In fact, his testing is even equal/superior to Jeffrey Okudah who is the premier tester among CBs this class despite Chinn being 15 lbs heavier. Seattle could easily be eyeing him as a Tre Flowers type of hybrid prospect.
If his agility testing on March 12th goes well -- he might be the highest CB drafted in the Carroll/Schneider era. He'd be a very unique player suited to play either CB/S.
Also, his listed weight is 221 at the combine. Size wise, he's a clone of Brandon Browner (both 75", 221 lbs). Chinn's speed and leaping is vastly superior. I'd expect his agility to shame Browner's as well.
I wouldn't be surprised if Seattle reaches for him early, despite what appears to be a glut of Safeties on the current roster. Chinn could easily fill another role immediately -- while having the flexibiliity to move to safety if required/desired. If Seattle wants to add more boom to it's secondary, there aren't many prospects like Chinn that come along. Certainly not in every draft.
Even if they don't want to do that, Chinn is kind of uniquely qualified to cover TEs, should that also be a potential role. He matches up extremely favorably to virtually any kind of TE (Inline or Move). A unique blend of size/length and speed that can be deployed in a variety of roles depending on opponent matchup.
