Overview
Chapas was an outstanding fullback for the Georgia Bulldogs for the past four years. As an NFL Draft prospect, the main issue is the status of his surgically-repaired ankle, as Chapas scores highly just about everywhere else. Assuming the ankle projects to fully recover, Chapas is clearly a quality NFL fullback prospect, has the tools as a receiver to be tried as an H-back and is ready for special teams immediately.
Analysis
Positives: Three-year starter at fullback for the Bulldogs is a very complete and well-rounded prospect. Is fast and agile for a lead blocker, and a decent option for inside handoffs. Has soft hands and is natural as a receiver downfield, not just for dumps. Is technically sound as a blocker, with good knee bend, proper hand placement, and the ability to put shoulder to thigh on the move as a lead blocker. Gives quality effort on special teams. Smart in the classroom, team leader, hard worker, tough.

Negatives: Had ankle surgery after the 2010 Georgia Tech game, the last game of the regular season, and missed the Liberty Bowl. Is not a Lorenzo Neal/Mike Karney caliber lead blocker, and isn’t in Peyton Hillis’ class as a runner. Needs to improve technique off the edge in pass protection – tries to lead block instead of set.
