Pass rushers are at a premium when it comes to the NFL. Teams can never have enough and everyone is looking for that tone setter to disrupt on the defensive side of the football every single snap.
If a player can consistently put pressure on the quarterback, it takes away what an offense what’s to do and doesn’t give them any time to find that rhythm. N.C. State’s Bradley Chubb has emerged as that top pass rusher in this draft class.
The defensive end for the Wolfpack had a special season that saw him win multiple awards and finish with 10 sacks. He also backs up his talent with a relentless motor that carries him nonstop every play.
At 6’4″ and 270 pounds, Chubb has the size and power from a top defensive end. HE had an impressive combine as well running a 4.65-40 yard dash and posting a 36-inch vertical leap as well.
If he gets those hands in the air, it’s going to be trouble for the quarterback. He’s tough, he’s violent and he has a motor that doesn’t run out. Any offensive tackle that works against him is going to have a long day. He sets the tone for the pass rushing class.
