BYU offensive guard Chandon Herring didn’t hear his name called in the draft but the offensive lineman signed a contract with the Tennessee Titans.

A 5-year player at BYU, Herring played in 49 games in 4 seasons and started at right guard this year for BYU. Herring is athletic for a 6-foot-7, 310 pounds lineman that can move well for his size. Bruce Feldman of The Athletic had Herring at #26 on his 2020 “freaks” list.

Freakiest attribute: Complete specimen

He is 6-7, 310 and is very lean with low body fat. Herring bench presses 410, cleans 380 and snatches 285, but he also can really move, having clocked a 4.9 40 as well. Herring started every game last season and had a dominant performance in BYU’s win over Tennessee. “Him and Frank Ragnow are the freakiest I’ve ever seen,” said Cougars offensive line coach Eric Mateos, who worked at Arkansas and LSU prior to BYU.

Herring is one of the older prospects in the draft and serving a two-year Church mission and spending 5 years at BYU, but he has the frame and skill to make a NFL roster.
