Scouting Report:

Chambers is a developing player that appears to have some upside at the next level. He is a decent athlete that can get the perimeters of his zone but must makes the correct reads to do so. He doesn't look to be as big as he is listed size and may actually measure in between 5’11 and 6’0 and around 180-185 pounds. He has more of a cornerback build, but will likely play safety at Michigan. Chambers could play the nickel safety in Ron English's scheme if he shows more consistency in his run support and aggressiveness. Run support goes hot and cold for him. He could match up with running backs in man coverage but will need to get bigger to handle Big Ten tight ends. Regardless of the position, it will be tough for him to match up with speedy wide receivers in straight man coverage. More consistency is needed here but he has shown potential in this area. He shows solid ball instincts and is at his overall best in zone coverage. If his aggressiveness becomes more consistent, should be able to contribute eventually. If not, he'll at least factor in on special teams.

I think it is a reasonable to forecast Chambers as a role player in the future. He has some athletic and size limitations, but the good news is he does show some potential. Furthermore, you don't have to be a five star athlete to be an impact safety. I don’t know if I would call him a sleeper but he is possibly someone who could start to bloom in a college program. To see the field he will have to show his value on special teams and work hard in the film room and play tough for his size.
