Bradley Chubb wants to be seen as Khalil Mack and Von Miller merged into one

The Denver Broncos used the No. 5 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft on Bradley Chubb, which furthers bolsters a defensive front seven that already includes the NFL’s premier pass rusher, Von Miller.

Bradley Chubb is likely going to be a Top 3 pick depending on how crazy the quarterback needy teams get in the 2018 NFL Draft. He has the size at 6’4” and 269 pounds to be a terror as an edge rusher.

At the NFL Combine he has set goals for himself to be as explosive as Von Miller and as powerful at Khalil Mack.

“I try to take Khalil Mack and Von Miller and put them into one person,” Chubb said. “Khalil Mack’s the more powerful guy, probably the best long arm in the game right now. Von Miller’s the speed, finesse guy. Just try to put both of those together, have some power moves, have some speed moves that I go to.”

He has the work ethic to achieve one or both goals as he set about to work like a professional football player by changing his diet and working on his explosiveness off the ball this offseason.

The Denver Broncos are unlikely to take a him at number five, but if they did something like that I wouldn’t complain. Chubb seems to have the work ethic and drive that Shane Ray has so far lacked in his first three seasons in the league.

When asked about the possibility of playing in Denver, Chubb seemed to relish the thought of playing with Miller.

“If I got to play with Von Miller, that would be crazy,” Chubb said. “He’s such a great player, such a dynamic player. Definitely could learn a lot from him.”

Chubb wouldn’t be the only one benefiting from being in Denver. Miller would too as he would no longer be double and triple teams and/or chipped on every single play. He’d have the monster on the other side that DeMarcus Ware was for three seasons.

As unlikely as it is, this fan can still dream for another few months about the possibility of those two playing together in Denver.
