Chester McGlockton, a four-time Pro Bowl defense tackle in the NFL, died early Wednesday morning at the age of 42, reportedly from a heart attack.

McGlockton was selected by the Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders with the 16th overall pick in the 1992 NFL Draft out of Clemson University.  He played for the Raiders from 1992-97, earning four Pro Bowl selections from 1994-97.  He then played for the Kansas City Chiefs from 1998-2000, and then went to the Denver Broncos, where he played from 2001-2002.  He played the last year of his career in 2003 for the New York Jets.

While in Denver, McGlockton started in 31 games and earned 66 tackles, 3.5 sacks, two interceptions, and one fumble recovery, of which he returned 24 yards for his only career touchdown.

McGlockton became a intern coach at the University of Tennessee in 2009, and then took a defensive assistant position at Stanford University in 2010.

He is survived by his wife Zina and his two children.
