DE- Bradley Chubb
6’4″ and 275 pounds of pure strength. The tough as nails defensive end from North Carolina State is another edge rush prospect to keep an eye on for your Bucs.
Two defensive ends make this list why? Because the Bucs have the least amount of sacks in the NFL with one of worst defensive end groups to ever put on the pewter and red.
Before we jump fully into Bradley Chubb the player, here some stats for the readers. As first pointed out by JoeBucsFan.
Robert Ayers, $6,250,000: two sacks.
Swaggy Baker, $6,000,000: half-sack.
Will Gholston, $7,000,000: sackless
Because this article is about draft prospects, all I am going to say is something has to change.
As for Chubb throughout the past three seasons for the Wolfpack, he has logged 25.0 sacks.
Chubb is an edge rusher who will both beat you with his speed to power and also his hand movements. His relentless sideline to sideline pursuit is what has him in the talks as possibly being the first overall pick in this year’s draft.
While this unlikely to happen, the conversation between who the best defensive end is between Chubb and Key is ever-lasting.
Whether Key or Chubb goes off the board first, one of the two players if not both should be available for the Bucs to choose from.
Do they finally answer the bell? Could General Manager Jason Licht’s ship sink if he passes up the opportunity once more?
