Georgia Bulldog Nick Chubb hasn’t taken an NFL snap yet, but he is already considered one of the top-10 running backs “worth pursuing” by an NFL team this offseason, according to NFL.com.
Chubb ended his Georgia career as one of the most decorated running backs in Southeastern Conference history. His 4,769 rushing yards ranks second all-time in the SEC, while his 44 career rushing touchdowns ranks fifth all-time.
“Chubb looks to be the most mature runner in this draft class. He runs with patience and has good knee lift and great balance,” NFL.com analyst Michael Robinson wrote. “The Georgia product is a split-legged runner, meaning he is always in step punch mode, breaking plenty of tackles and having enough speed and burst to go downfield.”
The Cedartown native’s projected draft position is sort of a mystery right now. Some mock drafts have him going in the second or third round while others see Chubb as a fourth or fifth round selection. Chubb is one of ten Bulldogs who will participate in next week’s NFL Combine in Indianapolis.
