In the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos have selected North Carolina State defensive end, Bradley Chubb.

Bradley Chubb, the new Denver Broncos defensive end is a 6’4”, 269lb pass rusher who will now join Von Miller, Shane Ray, and Shaq Barrett in the Broncos defense.

He was NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah’s 2nd overall prospect in the entire NFL Draft. Here is what he had to say about Chubb.

Chubb has ideal size, strength and instincts. He primarily lines up with his hand down, but did stand up at times for the Wolfpack. As a pass rusher, he has a good get-off, but he is an outstanding technician with his hands. He wins with rip moves, swipe moves and a powerful bull rush. He can bend and wrap the edge. Chubb’s motor never stops. His ability to finish is outstanding and it’s reflected in his production. He was asked to drop into coverage some, and while he’s serviceable in this capacity, he’s best served moving forward, not backward. Against the run, he shocks blockers with his hands. He can locate the ball and close ground quickly. He dominates tight ends. Overall, Chubb has a natural feel as a pass rusher and should be a double-digit sack artist very early in his career.

I like this pick. He will add some interior and edge pass rush to an already dominant Denver Broncos defense.

Here is what Denver Broncos General Manager John Elway had to say about the Bradley Chubb selection.
