Chazz Surratt, University of North Carolina

Chazz Surratt played all four years in college at the University of North Carolina. Surratt did not come into college as a star or even a starter for that matter. Surratt sat on the bench and North Carolina for the first couple of years he was there.

Surratt isn’t a huge body, but his skill and athleticism make him a perfect fit for a complement to Demario Davis. Paired with the coaching staff of New Orleans, Surratt could be a starter in New Orleans as early as his rookie year.

Surratt isn’t a player that is projected to be a first-round pick, but he could find himself there. He is an early to mid-second-round pick, but the Saints should definitely stretch to get him in the first if players like Nick Bolton are already off the board.

In the last two years, where Surratt started, he left with 207 tackles, 22.5 tackles for a loss, 12.5 sacks, two interceptions, two fumble recoveries, two forced fumbles, and five passes defended. He did all that in just 24 college games.
