Two standouts from the Broncos' excellent 2018 rookie class added to their achievements on Tuesday, as the Pro Football Writers of America announced that outside linebacker Bradley Chubb and running back Phillip Lindsay were selected to its All-Rookie Team.
Chubb made the team as one of four defensive linemen selected, along with Saints edge rusher Marcus Davenport and interior linemen Da'Shawn Hand of the Lions and Daron Payne of the Redskins. Chubb, the fifth-overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, established himself as one of the class' best defenders with 12 sacks, two forced fumbles and 60 total tackles. En route to breaking teammate Von Miller's Broncos rookie sack record, Chubb also won Defensive Rookie of the Month honors in October, when he recorded 5.5 sacks over a span of three weeks to cap the month.
Lindsay, meanwhile, had a memorable season that most Broncos fans probably already know extensively. The undrafted rookie sliced through opposing defenses for 1,037 rushing yards and 10 total touchdowns in just 15 weeks. After a Week 13 performance that included 157 rushing yards and two touchdowns, Lindsay was named NFL rookie of the week. Though his season was cut short by a wrist injury, Lindsay still set the Broncos' franchise record for rushing yards by an undrafted rookie.
Earlier on Tuesday, the PFWA also announced its All-NFL and all-conference teams, which included Lindsay and Von Miller.
