 Update

  12/13/17 - 2017 ALL-SEC FIRST TEAM (COACHES): RB Nick Chubb, Georgia,...Senior offensive tackle Isaiah Wynn, of St. Petersburg, Fla., and senior tailback Nick Chubb, of Cedartown, Ga., were named to the First Team Offense while junior inside linebacker Roquan Smith was included on the First Team Defense. The third-seeded Bulldogs (12-1) travel to Pasadena, Calif., to face second-seeded Oklahoma (12-1) in the College Football Playoff's semifinal round in the Rose Bowl on Monday, January 1. Kickoff is at 5:10 p.m. ET. - Georgia Football

 Overview

  A four-year starter at Georgia, Chubb put himself on the NFL map with his outstanding freshman season, but his sophomore knee injury created questions about his future, appearing to be a lesser version of himself upon his return as a junior. However, Chubb produced senior tape reminiscent of his true freshman season, finishing with a 6.2 average in 2017 despite only one run over 35 yards.

Chubb isn’t the most explosive runner, but he has light feet and skillfully marries his movements with his eyes. Defenders better finish him to the ground because his balance, run purpose and lower body strength allows him to squirm out of tackle attempts. He has a natural feel for the position and it is no coincidence that he finds running room due to his understanding of play design, patience and pace of action. As long as the medicals are clean, Chubb projects as a capable starter in the NFL.

BACKGROUND
A four-star running back recruit out of high school, Nicholas “Nick” Chubb, who is a descendant of the well-known Chubb family who founded Chubbtown, Ga. in the 1860s, was considered one of the top prep players in the state. Despite five-star running back Sony Michel already committed,

Chubb decided to stay home and commit to Georgia, choosing the Bulldogs over Florida, Auburn, Tennessee and South Carolina. He wasn’t expected to see extensive playing time with Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall entrenched atop the running back depth chart, but both missed most of the 2014 season and Chubb seized the starting role. He earned SEC Freshman of the Year honors with a team-best 1,547 rushing yards on 219 carries and 14 touchdowns.

Chubb was off to a better start in 2015 as a sophomore before he suffered a season-ending knee injury, requiring surgery. He returned as a junior in 2016 and showed obvious rust, but led the Bulldogs with 1,130 rushing yards on 224 carries and eight touchdowns. Chubb surprised many by bypassing the NFL for his senior season in Athens, looking much more like his 2014 form.


 Analysis

  STRENGTHS
Desired build with thick legs and lower body. Physical mentality and delivers blows mid-run. Finishes with low pads and forward lean, carrying tacklers for a few extra yards. Above average run balance, vision and cutting ability to make quick decisions based on his reads. Strong footwork in the hole to plant-and-go, keeping his eyes and feet in sync. Smooth lateral cuts and quickly regains his momentum.

Sees through the first defender and locates blocks, setting up his second and third moves. Professional work habits since high school and pushes himself in the weight room. Highly productive and finished his collegiate career ranked top-3 in the SEC in rushing yards – tied Herschel Walker for the SEC record with 13-straight 100-yard games. Football bloodlines – father (Henry) played at Valdosta State; uncle (Aaron) played at Georgia; cousin (Brandon) has spent time on NFL practice squads last two seasons; cousin (Bradley) is a first round prospect in the 2018 draft class. Three-time team captain. Developed mental toughness dealing with his sophomore knee injury. – Dane Brugler 11/28/2017

WEAKNESSES
Not a dynamic start-stop athlete in space. Moves with one consistent speed, but lacks explosive gears. Gets himself in trouble when he stops his feet in the backfield. Shows soft hands when targeted, but wasn’t a high volume receiving threat in college (29 career catches). Ball security improved, but still room for improvement.

Featured runner most of his career, but benefited from deep backfields, allowing him to have fresh legs – only one game with 20+ touches as a senior. Medicals will be important after his ugly knee injury (Oct. 2015), tearing the PCL, MCL and LCL (but not the ACL) in his left knee, missing the second half of his sophomore season – also missed some time due to a left ankle injury as a junior (Sept. 2016). – Dane Brugler 11/28/17

 Draft Scout Player News
03/02/18 - 2018 NFL Combine, Friday: If there was any question as to why Nick Chubb started over Sony Michel for most of his career at Georgia it may have been answered Friday with the bigger back Chubb (5-11, 228) proving to be even faster and more explosive than his smaller, albeit quicker former teammate. With the exception of Barkley, Chubb turned in perhaps the best overall workout by a back Friday, clocking in at 4.52 seconds with a 38.5-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot, 8-inch broad jump and matching the Penn State star with 29 repetitions in the bench press. To be clear, Chubb's terrific performance wasn't entirely unexpected, as he excelled in a similar setting as a prep at the SPARQ testing championships in 2013, but that was before suffering a significant left knee injury in 2015. Chubb's terrific performance puts him squarely in the top-50 conversation and could make him the first senior running back selected. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
02/27/18 - 2018 NFL Combine: Key Medical Evaluations: Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia...Although he has stayed relatively healthy the past two seasons, Chubb suffered a gruesome knee injury as a sophomore, tearing the PCL, MCL and LCL (but not the ACL). Are there any long-term worries? - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
01/08/18 - To win national championships the old-school, SEC way, you must have a smothering defense packed with big plays and a strong kicking game. Most importantly, you must run the ball. Then run it some more. Georgia's running game is deeper and better than Alabama's, by only a slight margin. That'll be the difference in Monday night's national championship game. In 1980, Herschel Walker's decision to sign with Georgia laid the groundwork for a national title that year. Similarly, the 2017 Bulldogs' hopes turned on the decisions by tailbacks Nick Chubb and Sony Michel to put their NFL dreams on hold for a year and return for their senior seasons.

The decisions by Chubb and Michel, as well as outside linebackers Lorenzo Carter and Davin Bellamy, all announced on the same December day in 2016, were crucial for coach Kirby Smart's second season. Carter blocked a field goal and Michel had the winning touchdown run in the second overtime of last week's 54-48 Rose Bowl playoff semifinal win over Oklahoma. Chubb and Michel combined to run for 326 yards against Oklahoma to become the most productive tandem in NCAA FBS history, passing SMU's Eric Dickerson and Craig James. In 1980, Walker was a one-man running game. Chubb trails only Walker on the SEC's career rushing list, yet he has far more help than Walker every dreamed of. - AP College Football

01/04/18 - 2017 ASSOCIATED PRESS ALL-BOWL TEAM: Running back...Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, Georgia (Rose): We're including the Georgia teammates as a package after they combined for six touchdowns in the third-ranked Bulldogs' 54-48 double-overtime semifinal triumph over No. 2 Oklahoma. Michel ran 11 times for 181 yards and three touchdowns - including the game-winning 27-yard score - and caught four passes for 41 yards and a fourth touchdown. Chubb ran for 145 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries. - AP College Football
12/13/17 - 2017 ALL-SEC FIRST TEAM (COACHES): RB Nick Chubb, Georgia,...Senior offensive tackle Isaiah Wynn, of St. Petersburg, Fla., and senior tailback Nick Chubb, of Cedartown, Ga., were named to the First Team Offense while junior inside linebacker Roquan Smith was included on the First Team Defense. The third-seeded Bulldogs (12-1) travel to Pasadena, Calif., to face second-seeded Oklahoma (12-1) in the College Football Playoff's semifinal round in the Rose Bowl on Monday, January 1. Kickoff is at 5:10 p.m. ET. - Georgia Football
