Corey Chavous talks draft, Scouting Combine


Former Cardinals, Vikings, and Rams safety Corey Chavous joined PFT Live on Thursday to talk about the NFL draft and the Scouting Combine.

Chavous, as many of you already knew, is a draft expert.  He operates, and he does an excellent job talking about anything draft and football related.

For his first visit to PFT Live, Chavous talked first about how he got interested in following the draft, his own experience at the Scouting Combine, how he got bumped from being the 21st pick in the 1998 draft after Randy Moss fell to the Vikings, and whether Moss has anything left.

And then the subject turned to the draft, and Chavous loaded us up with plenty of good stuff.  You cant watch it all right here.

If you missed Chavous live, we plan to get him back on next week to review what happened at the Combine.

  1. I like Chavous too, but I also cannot forget that in the 2006 Draft he insisted Reggie McNeal was the top QB in that draft. That kind of stubbornness ruins credibility.

  2. I was about to say the same thing beefsbrother. Not only did he have Reggie McNeal as his #1 QB but as his #1 overall player too. Chavous’ top 5 overall in 96 was 1-R.McNeal, 2-R.Bush, 3-V.Davis, 4-M.Williams, & 5-V.Young. McNeal went on to be drafted in the 193rd overall so Chavous was just a little off.

    It’s no wonder Chavous hasn’t gotten a draft analysis role by a prominent sports network.

  3. Geez people…the draft is just like recruiting football players for college. If someone is good enough to be right 80% of the time he is a genius! Also many times a good or even great player is taken by a bad team which has ruined more carreers than anything.

  4. There’s nothing wrong with pointing out a draft analyst’s incorrect picks. That said, it’s not fair to Chavous to say because of one misevaluation he doesn’t deserve a spot on a network. I like the guy and he obviously puts the work in.

    Even the pros mess up big. I saw a spot done by Freakonomics where an actual college professor did a study and it turns out that it’s only about 50-50 that the first CB drafted is any better than the second one drafted. It’s something that makes football so great: there’s a lot more to a guy being a great player than things that can be evaluated by stats and even experts.
