DL/LB: Bradley Chubb, Denver Broncos
The Denver Broncos lucked out with the fifth overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Bradley Chubb wasn’t supposed to be there for the taking, but when he was, the Broncos abandoned their strategy (there was a trade in place with the Buffalo Bills to move down) and took the star pass rusher out of the ACC.
Chubb ended up being one of the best rookie defenders in the NFL and a finalist for the Defensive Rookie of the Year award with 12 sacks on the season.
Chubb didn’t hit any rookie wall, either. He was effective as a rusher and against the run all season and looks like he has a big future in Vic Fangio’s defense with the Broncos.
Chubb wins with speed, power, and a devastating inside move. He’s going to be a superstar in this league.
