Kam Chancellor Listed in ESPN's Best 'Monsterbacks'

ESPN Insiders ranks the league's best 'monsterbacks' in a list of the top 5 veterans and rookies. What is a 'monsterback'? The Insiders panel defines the term 'monsterback' as "the new hybrid player in the NFL." These hybrid players are described by ESPN as "physical, fast and play-making chess pieces in the game plan" and "what every team is looking for."

Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor is ranked among the NFL's best veteran monsterbacks, finding a place at No.4 on the list. Chancellor is ranked behind Arizona Cardinal Tyrann Mathieu (No.1), Carolina Panther Luke Kuechly (No. 2), and New England Patriot Jamie Collins (No.3). 

Here's what ESPN Insiders had to say about Chancellor:

"4. Kam Chancellor, Seattle Seahawks: At 6-foot-3, 232 pounds, Chancellor is a thumper at the point of attack with a 6-foot-3, 232 pound frame. But he also showcases the skill set to match up to tight ends, roll to the deep middle of the field and close -- with speed -- on the ball. That's a nasty combination. He's a force in the Seahawks' Cover 3 scheme. And when he tackles, ball carriers are going to feel it."
