Pittsburgh, PA– Playing in the ACC, the offensive linemen of the Pittsburgh Panthers face top NFL Draft prospects on a regular basis and NC State defensive end Bradley Chubb might be the best of the bunch. His combination of size and athleticism places him in the upper echelon of prospects available for next year’s draft.

Since dropping their season opener, NC State is on a six-game winning streak and Chubb has definitely contributed to that success. This season marks the first time in school history the Wolfpack have taken down two ranked-ACC opponents in the same season. In a 27-21 victory over Florida State, Chubb was unstoppable with seven tackles, two sacks, and two tackles for loss. Their second big win, against Louisville, saw Chubb make six more tackles and add another sack to his team-leading 6.5, among two tackles for loss.

Offensive lineman Brian O’Neill of the Panthers—the Wolfpack’s most-recent victim—was definitely aware of Chubb’s ability.

“For me personally, absolutely,” O’Neill said. “I know how good of a player he is and it is kind of a measuring stick for yourself.”

Against Pitt, Chubb flashed the skill set that separates him from most of the other top defensive ends. He played off the line of scrimmage and often was dropping back in coverage. The type of versatility NFL teams covet.

“You want to be able to play the best and compete with the best.” O’Neill stated during post-game interviews. “He definitely is in terms of defensive linemen in the country. I was excited for it.”

Standing at 6-foot-4 and 275 pounds, his long frame probably makes NFL Scouts blush with excitement. Watching him you see a player that moves effortlessly for a guy carrying the weight he does. He showed a powerful swipe move on occasion and packed a punch at the point of attack when he was attacking.

“He brings it every single play to the echo of the whistle,” O’Neill said when comparing Chubb to other defensive linemen he faces. “That is kind of what separates the good from the great. He has a high motor and doesn’t stop.”

Is he tough?

If you watched the game or saw photos of his ring finger, then you already know–yes, he is very tough. Chubb’s finger was bent in a manner that I would assume would be the result of being a little roughed up for not paying a gambling debt. It looked that crazy.

Chubb rolled around a few times on the turf before exiting the game. Not long afterwards No. 9 was back on the field, making Mario Williams proud. The former Wolfpack defensive lineman (Williams) is the reason Chubb wears the No. 9, to honor the former first-overall pick of the 2006 NFL Draft.

NC State currently is in position to reach double-digit wins, a feat that has not been accomplished since 2002 (11-3). It would also mark the second time in the history of the school it reached the 10-plus win plateau. The better Chubb plays the more realistic those results become for the Wolfpack.

Enjoy him while he lasts college football fans or by happy he’s moving on if you root for a team in the ACC because next year, Chubb will be wreaking havoc in National Football League.
