The spotlight of the top five players at each position who don't hold offers will continue with defense. Today, five defensive backs in a combination list of both cornerbacks and safeties will get some well-deserved recognition from their performance on the field in 2019.

Check out for these five under the radar senior defensive backs this season.

Tommy Chavez – Tracy – Defensive Back

2019 Stats

Chavez is elite size as a cornerback and displays traits of a free safety. He plays with speed, toughness and is a smart tackler on receivers closing the gap when the ball is in the air. Another one of his skills is the ability to change direction and quickly attack on defense to make plays. His vision and awareness led to five interceptions, the most by any placer in the Tri-City Athletic League that was a part of earning first-team defense in the league. Make sure to watch the first half of the film as Chavez is also utilized as all-purpose on offense for the Tracy Bulldogs.
