2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Jeremy Chinn, S, Southern Illinois Salukis

Career Snapshot
Four-year starter who earned Second Team FCS All-America honors and made 71 tackles (2.5 for loss) with four interceptions and three pass breakups as a senior in 2019. Earned First Team All-Missouri Valley Football Conference honors and made 55 tackles with three interceptions, two forced fumbles and seven pass breakups as a junior. Named Second Team All-MVFC and made 66 tackles with three INTs, four forced fumbles and six PBUs as a sophomore. Missed two games with plantar fasciitis in 2019. Missed two games due to injury in 2018. Started his freshman season late due to a dislocated shoulder and torn labrum.

Positives
Athletic small-school safety with outstanding size and speed. Aggressive, fires around the field and works hard to make plays. Plays to his speed and moves quickly in every direction of the field. Tracks the pass in the air, displays a burst to the action and works hard to defend throws. Smooth and fluid in his backpedal in man coverage and quick in his hips to transition and run with receivers.

Negatives
Instincts are all over the place. Slow to read the action. Does not always correctly read routes in zone. Must improve his tackling and become more secure at the point.

Analysis
Chinn was a productive small-school defensive back who tested off the charts during combine workouts. He possesses incredible upside and just needs to brush off the rough edges of his game and consistently play at the level he is capable of.
