Chubb Rocks


If you didn’t hear about Georgia running back Nick Chubb during last year’s college football season, then let me catch you up because you’re missing out on the best running back prospect ever! Oh wait, did he just say that? Yes I did and I’d like you to hear me out.

Strengths: Speed, Power, Vision, Hands, Size and Character.

Listed at 5’10” and 228 pounds, Chubb starts off with the perfect size for a back. He’s built low to the ground, which gives him a huge leverage advantage over defenders and they literally bounce off of him. The power in his lower body lets him break an unbelievable amount of tackles. He has high 4.3 speed that lets him truly separate from defensive backs, which is rare for a player weighing almost 230 pounds. Chubb displays very good patience at the line of scrimmage and has a knack for finding the big hole. He is slow to the hole, but fast through the hole, which is perfect for a back. I see soft hands catching the football and a workman like attitude. He isn’t one to celebrate, but acts like he’s been there before…probably because he is there often!

Weaknesses: Abuse and Agility.

Chubb sacrifices his body often for more yardage and it leads to a lot of abuse on his body. Will this leads to more injuries and a shortened career? I don’t know, but it makes him a much more effective runner for fantasy purposes. I also don’t see a wide assortment of moves in his repertoire to make defenders miss. He uses a pressure cut well and his power, but not a lot outside of those two.

Next, let’s compare Chubb’s freshman season against some of the best the SEC has ever produced.

    Where would you consider him in a rookie/devy draft with White, Parker, and Ajaji the top rookies available?

    I would take Chubb 1st, he’s truly special. Once in a decade(maybe lifetime) type of prospect. At a minimum, I would take him after White…and i’m high on Ajayi.

    Would you take zeke or Boyd over Parker and ajayi?

    Yes to both.

    Zeke/Boyd have higher floors than Parker and Ajayi…I might argue higher ceilings as well. I’m not very high on Parker though.

    I am in a spot in my Devy League, where I can have 2 out of Chubb, Elliot, and Fournette. Luckily draft year does not matter, as my rebuilding team isnt expected to contend for a title until 2017 at the earliest.

    Also, in terms of Boyd, Is the hype around him real? Where would you rank him in this years WR class? He looks great on tape, with his ability to catch the ball away from his frame and his breaks in and out of cuts.

    Thanks for the help.
