Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about K'LAVON CHAISSON: LSU 6030 254 4.75,. Junior entry, one-year starter, Houston TX. Was a promising role player as a freshman in 2017 but missed the next year with an ACL injury in the season opener. As a redshirt sophomore he became a full-time starter but missed two games with an ankle injury. Played on the edge both upright and with his hand in the dirt. He was primarily used to rush the passer but when used in coverage he showed the ability to flip his hips and get in throwing lanes. Plays at an optimal pad level and is powerful at the point of attack with quick hands and strong lower body. Shows shed ability and is solid playing the run on the edge. Moves well laterally and can be difficult to get around. His biggest strengths are pass rush tools with the ability to quickly bend and squeeze to get around a tackle. Agile athlete with fluid change of direction skill which shows up adjusting to quarterback movement in the pocket. Flashes a spin inside counter move to go with hand use. Effective on inside stunts. Has a tendency to repeat just trying to get around the corner allowing an offensive tackle to overset and ride him out. While he has shown counter move ability, he needs to be more effective with a variety of techniques moving forward. Has some inconsistency versus the run as he can get locked up on the line and ridden out. Still a work in progress but has the size, length and tools of an elite 3-4 outside linebacker prospect. 2019 stats: 60 T, 13.5 TFL, 6.5 sacks, 2 PBU, 6 QBH, 1 FF. No Combine workout-his choice. First/second round. (A-32 1/4, H-9 7/8, BP-DNP, SS-DNP).
