NC State's Chubb wins major award


0 Comment

Stay all four years of college. Win an award as the best defensive player in the entire country. Ok, fine. It usually doesn’t work out that way, but that’s not the case for NC State senior defensive end Bradley Chubb. Late Monday evening, Chubb was awarded the Bronko Nagurski Award, which is given to the nation’s top defensive player. He’s the first Wolfpack player to ever win the award, and head coach Dave Doeren said that no one deserved it more. Coming into college as a three-star recruit, Chubb now stands a good chance to be drafted as one of the first 10 picks in this years NFL draft. Just this season, the senior finished with 23 ½ tackles for a loss alone, passing former NCSU star Mario Williams who also happened to wear No. 9. If that’s any indication of what we can expect to see in the NFL, then we’re going to ask that the Panthers somehow finesse their draft order.
