2018 NFL Draft: Top 10 pass rushers for New York Giants
By Henry Buggy
#1 – N.C. State DE Bradley Chubb
This should come as no surprise. Bradley Chubb is considered by most draft analysts the top pass rusher in this year’s class and is projected to be a top 10 pick.
Kiper lists him as the third best prospect in this year’s class. Jeremiah lists him fourth, just behind Edmunds. The 6-foot-4, 275-pound prospect is an ideal fit as a 4-3 defensive end but is talented enough to succeed as a 3-4 outside linebacker if needed.
Adding Chubb to Vernon and Pierre-Paul would give New York a dominant pass rush. But with needs along the offensive line, in the backfield, and at quarterback, it seems unlikely Gettleman would use the No. 2 overall pick on the N.C. State defensive end. Then again, remember what Gettleman said in his introductory press conference, via New York’s team website.
"“You can never have too many great players at one position. I mean, you think about us – we got (Michael) Strahan and Osi (Umenyiora) and we’re drafting (Justin) Tuck and we’re drafting (Mathias) Kiwanuka and people are looking at us like we have brain damage. You can never have too many great players at one position. So, I’ll get into that much, much later, but let’s see where we end up and which pick we have and we’ll go from there.”"
Chubb is definitely one of the best players in this year’s draft. He’s right up there with Edmunds, Saquon Barkley, Quenton Nelson, and Minkah Fitzpatrick. Over the past three seasons, he amassed an incredible 54.5 tackles for a loss, 25 sacks, and six forced fumbles.
