Future Watch: Nick Chubb Rookie Football Cards, Browns – Nick Chubb was selected by the Cleveland Browns with the 35th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. This 5-11, 227-pound running back is going about his business in camp. He may show up on the “Hard Knocks” series and he’ll likely make his mark in preseason.
This Georgia native starred at Cedartown High School. In his senior year, he had 2,690 yards and 41 touchdowns. This track and field star would play his college career at the University of Georgia.
In 2014, he gained 1,547 yards with 14 touchdowns and a long rush of 83 yards. He got his name out there and scouts took notice.
In 2015, he only played six games. He still managed 747 yards and seven touchdowns. He didn’t finish the season due to the fact that he suffered a bad knee injury.
He returned in 2016 to gain 1,130 yards with eight touchdowns. He led his team to victory of TCU in the Liberty Bowl. He had 142 yards and a big touchdown.
In 2017, he had 1,345 yards and 15 touchdowns. He became the second all-time rusher in the SEC passing Kevin Faulk and Darren McFadden. Hershel Walker is the running back who’s ahead of him on the list.
Here’s a look at his 2017 highlights.
Chubb has already been recognized as a hard worker in camp. He lets his players do the talking and he’s a player to watch. With all the spotlight on other rookie running backs, he could steal some or all of it before you know it. Collectors shouldn’t sleep on him. He’s a battler and he’ll help make the Browns a better team down the road for sure.
