Round 4 - Carolina Panthers select Chuba Hubbard, RB, Oklahoma State.

Hubbard is a patient and confident runner that runs well behind his pads. Keeping a low center of gravity, he’s a one cut and accelerate runner that’s had lots of success in the wide-open Air Raid offense. With adequate vision and the athleticism to take advantage of small spaces, he’s a threat that could thrive in a zone-based blocking scheme that leverages angles and relies on quick cuts from rushers. Hubbard’s biggest deficiencies come in the passing game, as he’s failed to become a reliable option in that department. A somewhat conflicted catcher of the ball, he can fight it and struggle to haul passes in. Also a liability as a pass protector, he doesn’t bring the same physicality as a blocker as he does when possessing the ball.

I wonder which 40 time is more accurate. He allegedly ran a 4.36 at his pro day

He seems to have good game speed. Announcers said he has Olympic sprint speed. I saw he recorded in the 4.4s. Either way he seems to have really good burst and acceleration when he makes his cut.

Two big knocks there. You absolutely have to be able to catch and block in the NFL as a runner now days. Rhule is a great coach so I have to figure they think they can fix that.
