Who is Ty Chandler
At North Carolina in his 2nd senior year, he posted 1,092 rushing yards and 216 receiving yards. The important note is that Sam Howell, his quarterback, rushed for 828 yards which explains the lack of receiving work by the Tarheel running back corps.The Combine boosted his draft stock from UDFA to the 6th round. He’ll be a competent satellite back or special teams player. He’s a one cut and go type of runner, probably best in zone schemes.
Ty Chandler was selected in the 5th round of the 2022 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings. We’re not sure if he’s better than Alexander Mattison. If he beats out Mattison and Nwangwu, then he’s still only a backup to Dalvin Cook.
