Edge. K'Lavon Chaisson. 54. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. LSU. 3. player

Speaking of LSU defenders expected to go in the first round of the draft, K’Lavon Chaisson is another member of the Tigers worth keeping an eye on in regards to potential targets for the Eagles in the first round due to his playmaking ability on defense.

After appearing in just one game during the 2018 season due to an injury, Chaisson bounced back in one of the strongest ways possible in 2019 to help LSU win the title, and make a strong case for himself joining the NFL as well.

Between his awareness and speed to power, Chaisson seems like another one of those players Schwartz would love to work with on the defensive side of the football since the potential to see an early impact is so high.

By recording 6.5 sacks last season to go along with 13.5 tackles for loss, it is only a matter of time before Chaisson causes that same kind of havoc at the NFL level.

Of course, the tough thing with his scenario once again is whether Chaisson will even be available at No. 21 due to all of the other teams expressing interest as well in the star defender.

But even if the Eagles were open to trading up, Chaisson seems like the kind of defender who would make the move well worth it for Philadelphia on draft night.
