Overview:

Chesson has a nice career at Michigan, where he had 114 receptions, for over 1600 receiving yards, and 12 receiving touchdowns. He is a great pass catcher, he has good size, he is elusive, and he is also a great deep threat. He is also a dynamic returner, along with being sure handed, and he always goes up and gets the ball, along with always fighting for the ball. The only downside I see is his speed is not elite. With that said, Chesson should end up being a day 3 pick, likely in the 5th to 6th round range when it is all said and done.
