Podcast: The Big Board debuts with NC State star Bradley Chubb

06 Décembre 2017

The Athletic Detroit's new draft show will cover the draft process from all angles, starting this week with visits from potential top-10 prospect Bradley Chubb of North Carolina State and CBS Sports draft expert Chris Trapasso.

The 6-foot-4, 275-pound senior added the prestigious honor to the ACC Defensive Player of the Year award he won last week at a banquet in Charlotte on Monday.

Chubb ranks second in the FBS in tackles for loss with 23.5 this season.

Chubb finishes his college career with 25 sacks, beating out 2006 National Football League first-overall pick Mario Williams for the all-time school record. Ten of those are sacks, and he has 62 total tackles, as well as three forced fumbles and a blocked kick.

"It's a little surreal moment just knowing the people who won this award in the past", Chubb told the Associated Press upon his selection.

The two countries already have close military ties in Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition is fighting Iran-backed rebels. A few weeks after the blockade was imposed, Qatar announced plans to increase its gas production by 30 percent.

Chubb beat out four other finalists: Alabama safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, Iowa middle linebacker Josey Jewell, Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver and Georgia outside linebacker Roquan Smith.

When asked if there was trash talking between the five finalists beforehand, Chubb joked "It's all goodwill".

Chubb is also a finalist for another defensive player of the year award, the Bednarik.

Some of the previous Nagurski Award recipients are defensive linemen Aaron Donald, Warren Sapp and Ndamukong Suh, linebackers Luke Kuechly, Derrick Johnson and Terrell Suggs, and defensive backs Champ Bailey, Charles Woodson and Roy Williams.
