Bradley Chubb, DE/OLB
Not everything has been perfect for Bradley Chubb through three preseason games.
Heck, he wasn’t perfect against the Redskins by any stretch.
But for a rookie coming in and playing a pivotal role on this Denver Broncos’ defense, Chubb is looking really good.
He had a tall order ahead of him going up against Trent Williams — arguably the best tackle in the NFL — early in this game. The job didn’t get much easier after Williams was replaced by one of the best swing tackles in the NFL, Ty Nsekhe.
Chubb played very well, racking up four tackles, half-a-sack, and a really nice tackle for loss on Adrian Peterson to go along with two hits on the quarterback.
Playing in just one half of work, that’s not a bad day at the office for Chubb.
What does Chubb need to work on? We know he is capable of setting the edge and getting to the quarterback.
He got sealed off on a big fourth-down run by Vernon Davis. That kind of stuff cannot happen, though Davis is a very good blocking tight end.
Chubb has plenty of room to improve, but the sky is the limit for him as far as potential and he’s showing in limited snaps that he can be highly disruptive.
