Anthony Chickillo tries out LB for scouts, struggles

Miami DE Anthony Chickillo worked out exclusively as an OLB during his pro day and struggled, according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"He was stiff and looked poor trying to backpedal in coverage drills," Pauline wrote. Unfortunate news for a prospect some had seen as a sleeper. The star-crossed Chickillo was miscast as a 3-4 defensive end in college but appears to have miscast himself as an outside linebacker for scouts. The 6-foot-3 1/8, 261-pounder, a former five-star prospect, is a 4-3 DE at the next level.
