Kam Chancellor opted to return to Virginia Tech for his senior season and now he is about the receive his NFL pay day. Chancellor, who has an professional physique and athleticism, could be the the among the most highly selected Hokies to be drafted.
Chancellor has had an up-and-down career at Virginia Tech but he has been forced to play out of position, as a free safety in each of the past two seasons.

He seems likely to fit in his nature spot, strong safety, a more physical, contact-at-the-hole-type spot that will play to his strengths.
