Former Raiders DT Chester McGlockton Dead At 42

Stanford University is confirming former Raiders defensive tackle and current Cardinal defensive assistant Chester McGlockton died overnight from an apparent heart attack.

He was 42 years old.

McGlockton, a first round draft pick by the Los Angeles Raiders in 1992, went to four consecutive Pro Bowls from 1994-97 (All-Pro in 1995), and was considered one of the better interior defenders of the decade.

He had 51 sacks in 12 total seasons, making 151 starts and recording at least one sack each season he played at both tackle and end. He was a defensive force in an age where defensive tackles did not commonly rush the passer. McGlockton, John Randle and eventually, Warren Sapp, were strong pass rushers for the era. While Randle is in the Hall of Fame, and Sapp most likely will be, McGlockton did not have the same amount of eye-popping seasons the other two did. McGlockton also never played in a playoff game, having been with mostly with Los Angeles/Oakland, Denver and Kansas City at times of rebuilding or declining status.

He coached at the University of Tennessee in 2009, and was in his second year with Stanford when he died. He leaves behind a wife and two children.
