Chasen Hines
LSU Tigers


Squatty guard with very good power and good athleticism. Hines projects as a future starter with technical improvements.


Big and squatty guard with a thick lower half. Hines possesses impressive foot speed at his size, displaying very good step frequency. Offenses can run behind him in short yardage situations where he creates a push off the ball. Hines is a great drive blocker who displaces defenders vertically once he gets under their pads and laterally as a downblocker. Powerful hands off the ball allow him to enforce his will and establish leverage. He finishes with strong strikes or by driving through contact, dealing out body blows to second-level defenders. Hines can pull and work to the second level, getting out of his stance quickly and showing his nimbleness. In pass protection, he has quick hands to reset and replace against rushers attacking his chest. Hines is able to keep his balance despite losing the leverage battle, recovering and refusing to be uprooted. His base is always wide and he possesses active feet and good lateral agility to mirror. He anchors consistently with his base and lower body strength.


Suffering from occasional mental lapses, Hines occasionally misses stunts and blitzes. He does not work at favorable angles when sealing lanes. Quick defensive linemen beat him at the point of attack with a swim move as he is often very low. His ability to latch at the second level is below average. Hines lacks length and gets outreached by extending defenders at the point of attack. He is not always proactive with his punch, allowing rushers to knock his hands down. Hines is unable to power step and shut down rushers attacking his shoulder. 


Compact guard with a thick lower half who possesses good foot speed and agility. Hines is a great drive blocker as he can create movement up-front. His anchor is strong. He is inconsistent technically and lacks length. Hines projects as a backup guard who can also play center early on in his career before becoming a solid starter by his second or third season with improved technique. 


Chasen Hines started out at Marshall High School in Texas where he transitioned from offensive line to defensive tackle as a senior and made an immediate impact. He enrolled at LSU in January of 2018 and went through spring practice with the Tigers. A consensus four-star prospect and before switching to the defensive line, was listed as the No. 1 offensive guard in the state of Texas and No. 6 nationally. As a Freshman at LSU, Hines played in eight games with one start in 2018. He started at left guard against Mississippi State as he helped the Tigers to a 19-3 win over the Bulldogs. He played a total of 286 snaps during the season. In 2019, Hines served as the backup to All-America Lloyd Cushenberry at center in 2019. He played in 10 games with no starts and also saw action on special teams. In 2020, Hines took over as the starting right guard for the Tigers after serving as the backup center to NFL draft pick Lloyd Cushenberry in 2019. He started the first nine games of the season before missing the finale against Ole Miss and played 665 offensive snaps. He did not miss an offensive play in six of the nine games in which he saw action. He returned to play in 2021 where he was rewarded with an invite to the NFLPA Bowl.
