Ahhh…there is nothing I like more than rolling over the remaining lifeforms after planetary conquest. The feeling of dominance as you roll over their squishy bodies – smells like….victory!
I imagine its what it feels like to be a dominating running back. I saw some old videos of Herschel Walker and he must have felt the squishing bodies of the defenders underneath him.
Georgia has had some good running backs: Walker, Todd Gurley and now Nick Chubb.
The Positives: Nick Chubb has been very productive at Georgia. As a freshman no one expected much from him. But when Todd Gurley went down with an unfortunate injury Chubb picked up the slack – rushing for over 1,500 yards and 14 touchdowns. For his career Chubb ran for 4,599 yards and 42 Touchdowns.
Chubb is listed at 5-10, 225 pounds. He is a downhill powerful runner who fights for every inch. He’s a fun runner to watch – breaking tackles and using his body to overpower defenders.
Chubb is a decisive runner – he hits the hole fast and has also proven to be elusive in the open field. He had plenty of long rushing touchdowns in his career at Georgia.
The Negatives: Chubb suffered an ACL injury in his sophomore season. He missed seven games that year. But Chubb bounced back strongly in his junior season and had a third 1000 yard season in his senior season (2017).
That said, Chubb’s freshman year stands out as his most productive. The medical evaluation at the combine might hurt his draft stock in the same way it hurt Jay Ajayi.
He’s not a great asset in the passing game only catching 3 passes in 2017 and 5 in 2017.
The Alien Dust: One of my favorite running backs to watch run…Boom Boom and then he breaks a big run. If you enjoyed watching Ajayi run, you will probably like watching Chubb.
I think he can be a productive runner in any NFL tandem and a great short yardage back. I would love to see Chubb paired with Drake for a powerful rushing attack in Miami. Not sure if Miami feel like they can work with him in the passing game though.
He won’t be drafted too high. He’s probably a day 3 pick. At best he is a 3rd rounder.
This terrific prospect reminds me of the lunar flattener I love using to crush the remaining lifeforms on a planet. So that’s his weapon of destruction – an obvious fit. Lookout defenders!
