Bradley Chubb had a great 2018 rookie campaign, and he was recognized for his level of play, being named #10 on the CBS Top 25 NFL Players Under 25 list.

The NFL world was shocked in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft when the Browns passed on Bradley Chubb with the fourth overall pick to take Denzel Ward. On the opposite spectrum, John Elway and the Broncos were ecstatic, because a diamond had fallen into their laps, and they knew it.

We could hear a collective sigh from the rest of the AFC West as the Broncos took Chubb with the fifth overall pick, knowing that their offensive lines had just been assigned a tough task- keeping both Von Miller and Bradley Chubb away from their quarterbacks.

Chubb impressed in his rookie campaign, racking up 12 sacks, 58 pressures, two forced fumbles, and one fumble return. Bradley Chubb, who made a case to be the Defensive Rookie of the Year, was definitely a bright spot in the 2018 Broncos season, especially when there weren’t many to be found.

Chubb’s efforts did not go unnoticed. He has been named to CBS’s Top 25 NFL Under 25 list. Chubb came in at number ten. Although most of us would likely feel that he deserved to be in a higher spot, he joins some pretty good company.

Next. Broncos Secondary looking great once again. dark

As we know, Patrick Mahomes is the number one guy under 25. The only edge rushers to beat Chubb out were Danielle Hunter, Myles Garrett and Joey Bosa. Garrett and Bosa have both put on an impressive NFL campaign thus far, and Danielle Hunter is coming off of a 14.5 sack season.

Author of the post, Sean Wagner-McGough, had high praise for Bradley Chubb:

"“In hindsight, it’s difficult to believe that Bradley Chubb fell to the Broncos at No. 5 in last year’s draft. In many other years, he could’ve went No. 1 overall. How fortunate the Broncos were that Chubb slid to them, because he looks like he could be one of the league’s next great pass rushers. Actually, he might already be. In his rookie season, Chubb racked up 12 sacks and 58 pressures, which ranked 19th among all edge rushers, according to PFF. It’s going to be really run to watch him blossom in Vic Fangio’s defense.” (per CBS)"

I definitely think that Broncos Country can agree that we have already seen streaks of greatness from Bradley Chubb, and that we are looking forward to seeing how the new system brought in by Vic Fangio impacts Bradley Chubb’s game.
