NC State Defensive End Bradley Chubb could be playing in the NFL season this year, but he opted to return for his final season at NC State. Chubb is almost a lock to be a first round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, and he’s also a lock to break open the NC State record book before this years over.
Chubb enters this season with 16.5 career sacks, which ranks 10th all-time in NC State history. As a Junior, Chubb collected 10.5 sacks (the third highest total by a Wolfpacker in a single season). If he were to post another 10 sack season in 2017, he would pass Mario Williams (25.5 career sacks), and become NC State’s all-time sack leader.
He also has 34 career tackles for loss, which ranks 12th all-time in school history. Last season, Chubb posted a gaudy 22 tackles for loss, which marks the 2nd highest singles season total in NC State history. If he were to miracously reproduce that insane number again as a Senior, he would finish half a tackle for loss ahead of Mario Williams, becoming the all-time leader at NC State in tackles for loss.
