The selection of Bradley Chubb for the Denver Broncos is exciting in many ways. For one, he was a consensus top-five player in the class and one of the best non-quarterbacks in the entire draft.
Chubb is also is a very versatile and well-rounded edge rusher, who’ll allow the Broncos to do a variety of things defensively that they couldn’t really do a year ago, with only three edge rushers, and one of them, Shane Ray, injured for a large part of the season
Beyond what the former Wolfpack star brings to the defense, the Broncos depth at the position is back to its 2015 form, when Denver was able to ride the unit all the way to a Super Bowl win. Also, that depth is rendered even greater with the addition of undrafted free agent Jeff Holland, who terrorized SEC offenses last season.
Beyond just the player they added, the Broncos selection of Chubb opens up a world of options of how to attack, and confuse, opposing quarterbacks in 2018.
