Scouting Report: Sean Chandler, DB, Temple

Camden, NJ | 5114 | 200 | 4.50E | 2018

 

Has evolved into a roaming free safety who serves as the last line of defense—he played cornerback during his first two seasons but he seems to be missing some of the tenacity in 2017 that we have seen out of him in years past. There has been a coaching change and his playing time has been noticeably decreased; he was absent for nearly the entire first half against Navy. Has a nose for the football and is a sound tackler. Possesses solid footwork and tends to usually be in the right place at the right time. Has earned a reputation for being the hardest worker on the team. Quiet leader but teammates take notice when he does speak up, according to players. He took it upon himself to conduct offseason workouts in high school, according to his head coach. Was known to have a positive influence on Tavon Young (Ravens), rubbing off his maturity and has even been credited by some, with helping to mold him a better overall player/person. He did miss four games in 2016 due to a leg injury. In terms of his background, this player comes from nothing. He grew up in six different homeless shelters in Camden, New Jersey until the seventh grade. Nicknamed ‘Champ.’ Four-year starter. Hybrid player who can play cornerback or free safety at the next level depending on scheme.
