I think Nick Chubb will bounce back.


He was back last season, finished with almost 1200 yards rushing, his AVG was down to 5.0 though.

Chubb just doesn't have any elite trait that makes me think he will be a great NFL player. He's a very good collegiate RB, but Georgia's OL was supremely underrated. A large majority of his yardage came off beautifully executed OL blocking. I don't think having a great OL somehow detracts from what you are/will be as a prospect, BUT I do think it speaks to the gaudy numbers that he has produced in his college career.

I didn't like him before the injury because of his lack of explosive power. He strikes me as a rotational back that should not go higher than the 3rd round. He's a very well rounded player, but almost all the great players in the league have some remarkable trait that sets them apart from other players. He does not have that in my opinion.

Maybe not after the injury, but Chubb would have been a top 10 pick. Don't kid yourself.

We will have to see what he is a year removed from his injury before writing him off. It is a crucial season for his pro career.
