Kyle Brandt of Good Morning Football on NFL Network called the fit of Bradley Chubb with the Denver Broncos more than a month before the 2018 NFL Draft…
The Denver Broncos were certainly fortunate to land Bradley Chubb with the fifth overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Chubb was considered by many to be the top defensive player in the entire class of 2018 with a well-rounded game and the ability to play multiple positions effectively on a defensive front.
That’s exactly what he’ll do with the Broncos, but before even Vance Joseph or John Elway dreamed this scenario up — one month before, as a matter of fact — NFL Network and Good Morning Football host Kyle Brandt dreamed up a scenario where Chubb would wear orange and blue at the next level.
This is a segment from March where Brandt and the crew are discussing whether or not Chubb is the top defensive player in the draft.
Even in our wildest dreams, the thought of Chubb making it past the fourth overall pick and the Cleveland Browns seemed like a, “Can you imagine?” sort of pipe dream.
The Browns shocked a lot of people by drafting Denzel Ward with the fourth overall pick, including the Denver Broncos draft room.
When Ward came off the board, leaving Chubb available to the Broncos, there was really no discussion needed.
Chubb was going to be the pick.
As Brandt laid out here, before the pick was really even a thought on anyone’s mind, the tandem of Chubb and Von Miller has the potential to be the most dangerous duo in the league.
It still hasn’t really sunk in for many Broncos fans that the team now has a future Hall of Fame type of player in Von Miller and another playmaker on defense who is on par with other top edge prospects to come out in recent drafts like Jadeveon Clowney, Khalil Mack, Joey Bosa, and Myles Garrett.
This pairing has the potential to be everything Brandt dreamed up and more.
