Rush through the roster: #95 Todd Chandler

Posted: May 14, 2014 in Football

The series continues (no 97 or 96 currently on the roster) so we move to #95 Todd Chandler. The season defensive tackle is poised for a huge season.

#95 Todd Chandler – 6′ 320 lbs. – Defensive tackle – Senior – Miami, FL (Northwestern HS)

2013: Chandler, rotating among several linemen, totaled 24 tackles, 5.5 TFL, and forced 2 fumbles. In 2012, he had 19 tackles including 5 TFL and 2 sacks.

2014 Bull Rush Prediction: Chandler is a relentless defensive tackle that is not only stout against the run, but never stops attacking and chasing down the ball carrier. I recall the play against Michigan State last year where he lost his helmet chasing down a ball carrier and continued to chase him down. While it was anĀ illegal play (can’t continue the play if your helmet comes off), it showed his level of intensity and speed to get up field and chase down a running back despite being such a huge man. I expect Chandler to be a starter to begin the year and to be a huge key to the center of the defensive front all year.
