Don’t expect him to have a high second-round grade for long. Michigan Wolverines defensive lineman Maurice Hurst could go as high as top-five in the upcoming draft. The only reason his stock has fallen is that Michigan’s has as well. After beating the Minnesota Golden Gophers on Saturday, the unranked Wolverines will get back into the College Football Playoff Top 25 this week.
At 6-foot-2, 280 pounds, Hurst has the bulkiness and potentially the pad level to be a really good defensive tackle in the NFL for a long time. This season at Michigan, Hurst has 40 total tackles, 20 solo and 20 assists. 10.5 of those tackles came for a loss of yardage. He has 4.0 quarterback sacks on the year on the Michigan defensive interior.
Who says one Chubb is enough? Why not double-down and draft Bradley Chubb‘s extended cousin in Georgia Bulldogs running back Nick Chubb? Chubb is one of the most productive running backs in SEC history. He has amassed over 4,200 yards in four years in Athens to go along with his 38 career rushing touchdowns.
We know that Chubb can run between the tackles, but it remains to be seen if he’ll be great as a receiver in the backfield. Though he may not have a long NFL career, he can be the bell-cow back Oakland is in desperate need of. At 5-foot-10, 225 pounds, Chubb is a ruthless competitor that will make whatever team he joins better.
