Broncos, Briefly: Wednesday, June 20, 2018

Chubb has the speed (4.65-second 40-yard dash), athletic ability (36-inch vertical) and strength (24 lifts on the bench press) to be a star as both a pass rusher and run stopper. Along with six-time Pro Bowler Von Miller, the fifth overall pick should help return Denver's defense to the ranks of the elite.

While the trade for tackle Jared Veldheer several weeks into free agency was a high-quality effort that will fill a glaring need in the offense, the Broncos quickly scooping up Bradley Chubb with the No. 5 pick of the draft is a move that could be pivotal for years to come. Chubb, who was the best pass-rusher on the draft board, has shown plenty of elite athleticism in the team's early workouts, but most importantly he's also shown a level-headed, get-after-it approach in his day-to-day work. That bodes well for his chances at the kind of success the Broncos hope for while also helping make the most of Von Miller's prime years.
