Chase Day should get attention as an undrafted free agent.
Covid-19 has had an impact on nearly every aspect of the sporting world, but perhaps nowhere more than with prospects and their ability to be properly scouted for the various drafts. NFL linebacker prospect Chase Day is a perfect example of a player whose draft status was negatively affected by the pandemic.
In having his Pro Day cancelled, the Louisiana-Monroe fifth year senior missed a golden opportunity to show NFL scouts what he can do. And this was only exacerbated by the fact that he wasn’t invited to the NFL Combine. So when Day ran a 4.48 40-year dash (see video below) — a time that would have ranked third among the over 40 linebackers that participated in the Combine — it flew under the radar, and he went undrafted as a result.
RotoRob recently chatted with Day about this experience, his college career, his aspirations to make the NFL as an undrafted free agent and his limited exposure to Fantasy football.
Among the topics we explored were:
- How he massively improved his 40-yard dash time;
- How his injury history played a role in him not being drafted;
- His limited experience with Fantasy football;
- His belief in his skills being NFL worthy; and
- Which NFL linebacker he believes his game most resembles.
