Length is the name of the game when it comes to Chauncey Golston. If you want a speed rusher, he may not even be on your draft board. With that being said, there’s plenty to like in his game, but Golston’s upside seems to be fairly maxed out based on his athleticism on film, his measured athleticism and his frame.
He is a big base end who may have the potential to play 4-technique, head up on the tackle, if he fills out his frame slightly. He should be viewed as a potential draft pick who will fight into camp for a spot on the roster.
