Strong Points

Thick, strong and productive back who is one of the better inside runners in this draft. Quick to hole with lean and power. Consistently able to get yards after contact. Very good vision. Has patience to wait for blocks. Has a burst to get outside. Tough and dependable.

Weak Points

Suffered a devastating knee injury in 2015, and though he played for two seasons after the injury, Chubb needed to be thoroughly checked out at the combine. Doesn't have the breakaway speed that teammate Sony Michel possesses. Has never been a big part of the passing game. Needs work on pass protection.

The Way We See It

After his freshman year, Chubb looked like he could be a potential high first-round pick. Had a very serious knee injury in 2015, and how he fared on the medical at Indy will have a lot to do with where he gets drafted. Chubb is best running inside, where he shows power. Resourcefulness and run strength allow him to pick every inch. A very good move-the-chains back. He's good, not a top outside runner. He is elusive enough in space to make defenders miss with his quickness. Receiving production is not that good and he has just average hands. Overall, if he gets by the medical, he has the talent to be a starting NFL back. May be best in a rotational role like he was in college.
