Chaisson is a solid linebacker who could definitely fill a need for Jacksonville. He spent three years at Louisiana State University but was redshirted his sophomore year after sustaining a season-ending injury during the first game. He would go on to help LSU win its fourth national championship the following year before declaring for the draft.

He earned first-team All-SEC honors after totaling a team-high 13 1/2 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks with 60 stops total in 2019, helping LSU take home the national championship.
