Defensive End – Bradley Chubb
You want a relentless, aggressive, mean defensive end? Here is your guy.
6’4″ 275 lbs. of pure hard nosed football.
Senior Bradley Chubb is rated as the top defensive end for this year’s class.
His tackles for a loss speak for themselves. His sacks speak for themselves.
As for Chubb, there is not as much to write about as there is with Key. Consistency across the board with no off the field issues.
A quick first step along with a fantastic use of both speed and power is the kind of skill set Chubb brings to the table.
When you take a look at the typical 4-3 defensive end, it is the type of guy who can both stop the run and rush the passer. Chubb provides that. In an ever expanding pass happy league, Chubb has shown progression from his sophomore season in sack totals compared to his senior year.
Chubb has the ability to anchor down his side of the line and prove to tackles that he will control the line of scrimmage.
A knock against Chubb would be that his pass rushing ability is still a work in progress. Chubb does not showcase many techniques or moves to get to the quarterback and relies much on his physical strength. This could be an issue at the next level.
Taking a look at the tape, what stands out the most is that Chubb will make his presence known early and fast. Whether this be a sack or a casual tackle, Chubb will FINISH the tackle. The emphasis on finish is much needed.
