Draft Information


Overview
Bradley Chubb has an outstanding football pedigree. His father played linebacker at Georgia, and his brother played at Wake Forest. His cousin is Georgia’s talented Nick Chubb, and they will enter the 2018 NFL draft together. Bradley is the Wolfpack’s career sacks leader. Has 20 sacks, and 44 tackles for loss over the past 2 seasons. Plays in a 4-3 base defense. However, he did drop into coverage at NC State, and it wasn’t too big for him. He has seen several pass rush snaps from both sides of the ball.

Best Position Fit
RUSH/SAM 34 Linebacker, 43 Defensive End

Strengths
Possesses a nice combination of size and athleticism. Extremely quick burst off the ball, especially for a bigger Edge rusher (275 pounds). Gets a lot of notoriety for his pass rush ability, but is also one of the best run defenders in the nation. Holds the edge extremely well. Played against quality competition. Is the complete pass rusher and run defender package.

Weaknesses
Needs to add more pass rush moves to his arsenal. Needs to clean up missed tackles. Missed on nearly 20% of his opportunities to make a tackle.

Summary
Chubb’s build and movement reminds me of last year’s first round prospect Derek Barnett, only Chubb appears to be about a step quicker. I believe a lot will depend on his 3-cone workout at the NFL Combine. If he runs the 3-cone under 7 then he will cement himself as a top 5 pick. Explosive Edge Rushers do not usually come in larger sizes.

Chances of missing with him are slim, because of his position flexibility. If he doesn’t cut it at RUSH, then he can easily be transitioned to SAM. He has the production, the size, and the talent to become the first defensive player selected in the 2018 NFL Draft.
