CFP Title Game: 11 potential New York Giants draft prospects
By Henry Buggy
#2 – Georgia RB Nick Chubb
NFL draft analysts have a wide-ranging opinion about Chubb’s ability at the next level, and some are concerned with his injury history. Miller lists him as the 10th overall running back on his prospect rankings and labels him the “biggest question mark” due to his injury history.
The Bulldogs 5-foot-10, 225-pound tailback has amassed 4,744 rushing yards and has scored 48 touchdowns in three in half seasons. Chubb has forced 56 missed tackles on 205 carries this season, according to Pro Football Focus.
While Bleacher Report’s draft analyst ranks him 10th at his position, Walter Football projects Chubb to be a first to second-round selection and lists him as the fourth best running back prospect. Kiper is in between the two, ranking the Georgia prospect sixth among running backs.
Chubb might be an ideal fit for the Giants and could be a draft steal if still on the board at the start of the third-round. Much like last year, there’s expected to be plenty of running backs to choose from in the draft, and three of them will be playing in the national championship Monday night.
