Chad Muma #48 – 6-3, 240 – Wyoming –  Sp. 4.60
           NFL Comparison: Logan Wilson                    Rating 82
Physical dependable senior excelled both downhill and between the hash marks in his two-starting seasons for the Cowboys. Back-to-back 1st team MWC performer with over 200 tackles during that period. Aggressive and passionate and plays hard till the whistle. Good teammate and hard worker. Above average quickness and playing speed and displays a burst to consistently close. Good range sideline-to-sideline with sound angles and the ability to get through traffic and scrape. Top athleticism downhill and laterally with the agility and COD to play in space. Developing core strength at his 240 lbs. which he is beginning to use effectively as a huge hitter. Plays behind his pads and rarely on the ground. Strong active hands and has learned to use them in all facets. Potential to develop into a 3-down backer with improvement in coverage ability. Former safety is a quick study in coverage and capable of being an early three down starter. Reliable run-plugger does a plus job of stopping runs before they can turn into positive yardage. Displays good peripheral vision and decisive in his read/react ability. Goes where his eyes tell him. Takes few false steps and trusts his vision and instincts. Shows awareness and technique to slips blocks well. Maintains good balance with the instincts to react which allows him to play fast. Squares himself up to ball carriers to create an impact and make the tackle. Plays within himself and has been a consistent tackler vs a high level of competition and big games. Capable blitzer with the burst to close, though relies more on power than technique. Consistently slips/sheds blockers in space with a combination of technique and power. Sifts well through trash and tough to get off his feet. Struggles vs big interior blockers and prefers to slip with strong hands and quick feet. Able to disengage and stay on his feet. Though not a quick twitch athlete, he will be a starter in time. In pass coverage, he is proficient in zone and short area currently, though needs development in the deeper zones. Potential to cover faster TE’s up the seam, though not ready now. Good lateral range, though can be exploited by fast backs in space when asked to cover too much ground. Also, shows the versatility to play Sam in the 4-3 set. As a senior, he totaled 142 tackles, 9 TFL, 1 PBU, 3 picks and 2 sacks, starting all 13 games. Earned DPOY and 1st team MWC honors. At the NFL Combine, he weighed in at 239 lbs. and 6’3” with 31 5/8” arms and 10” hands. Ran a 4.63 time with 27 reps and had a 40” VL, 10’9” BJ and did a 4.28 shuttle and 7.06 three cone. It was a very good workout. Top AA and play recognition ability and he is able to contribute early and possibly start. Intelligent and heady and understands assignment football while able to carry them out well. Rising savvy backer and top 50-75 prospect with fast development and the intangibles to make an impact as both a starter and special teams’ performer.
