Scouting Report
Chappell couldn't have asked for a much better ending to his collegiate career, though it's hard to say if it made much of an impression on scouts, and it wasn't enough to garner an invite to the NFL combine. Fighting off knee and hip injuries, Chappell led a 71-yard drive that forced overtime and Indiana went on to win at Purdue for the first time since 1996. He earned Big Ten player of the week honors after throwing for 330 yards, breaking the single-season school record with 3,295, and had three touchdowns with no interceptions as the Hoosiers ended a 12-game conference losing streak. Chappell ended up as Indiana's career leader in completions and attempts while finishing second in TD passes and yards, but many of his lofty numbers came against lesser competition. The Bloomington native had 28 TDs and 23 interceptions in Big Ten play, compared to 17 and five, respectively, in non-conference games - all but one versus non-BCS programs. Then again, Chappell also faced a lot more pressure when the Hoosiers offense became somewhat one-dimensional after top rusher Darius Willis suffered a season-ending knee injury in the conference opener. Chappell does have a big frame, a big-time arm and is willing to stay in the pocket to the last second, but some poor decision-making is among the reasons he might be fortunate to hear his name called in the sixth or seventh round.
