LB - MIN
Week 3 Outlook
Expert NoteView More Notes
Surratt's a smart and instinctive LB that thrives when dropping into zone coverage. Plays with an edge and a competitive toughness that enables him to come down and make a thumping stop in short yardage situations or stick his nose into a pass play downfield and break up the pass. Decent athlete and should have enough speed to play in the NFL, but it might not be enough to push him into the top-10 conversation ever in his NFL career. However, he has the intelligence and competitiveness that will allow him to stick in the NFL for a very long time. Could make a name for himself on Special Teams to start his career before he transitions into a starting WILL LB role. Most likely a late Day 2 pick or early Day 3.

Chazz Surratt selected No. 78 by Minnesota Vikings
The Minnesota Vikings have selected LB Chazz Surratt with the No. 78 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Surratt is an undersized, speedy linebacker who converted from quarterback to lead UNC's defensive unit for two seasons. Many scouts like his ability to track his assignment across the field while delivering big hits to ball carriers. Vikings' head coach Mike Zimmer is definitely looking to revamp one of the worst defensive units from 2020, focusing on the linebacker position to secure the middle of the field in his blitz-heavy defensive schemes. There is quite a bit of untapped potential in Surratt, who is still learning the linebacker position and can be coached up under one of the best defensive minds in Mike Zimmer. Surratt will likely back up former All-Pro linebackers Eric Kendricks and Anthony Barr but could be used as a hybrid safety or edge rusher as he grows into a role in Minnesota.
