As Bradley Chubb snaked his way through the plethora of top-notch high school prospects competing at the Adidas 7-on-7 National Championships in early April, one thing became abundantly clear.
Not many people really noticed him.
Elite Youth Jake Muzzin Jersey Despite the vibrant tie-dye shirt atop his hulking 6-foot-4, 269-pound frame, Chubb didn’t stand out.
There are great players in this draft, but my value is a lot higher. It’s not a cocky thing, just a confidence thing.
There’s no question that Chubb was college football’s best defender in 2017. He won both the Hendricks (best defensive end) and Nagurski (best defender) awards during a fantastic senior year, in which he registered 73 tackles with 26 tackles for loss and 10 sacks. Despite going so high in the draft, Chubb said he believed he deserved even better. He believed that after four seasons with 204 tackles, 60 Alonzo Mourning Jersey tackles for loss and 26 sacks, Roger Goodell should have called his name first.
Chubb’s self-confidence hasn’t always been there though. He arrived at NC State in 2014 motivated to prove that he was an elite talent, but Chubb admitted he didn’t take his game or his preparation seriously until the summer before his sophomore year. After totaling only four tackles during his freshman season, Chubb said he dedicated himself to training and eating properly.

But when you make a decision this large, you want to have unanimous consent in the building. So you don’t want to set the stage or alter anything. So you want to hear unbiased opinion on everybody before you make this decision. So that’s why I kept it as pure as we possibly can.

assnola is also accused of conspiring with Gatto, Code and Dawkins to funnel approximately $100,000 from Adidas to the father of former Louisville signee Brian Bowen in 2017. The government alleges they planned to make four payments of $25,000 by submitting sham invoices to Adidas for travel and other fees. Bowen enrolled at Louisville last year, but never played in a game before transferring to South Carolina. He entered the NBA draft earlier this month but did not hire an agent.
