Overview
Hubbard's 2019 production would tell you he ate, but he had plenty put on his plate with almost 26 carries per game. In 2020, his production dipped as teams seemed to find ways to bottle him up. Hubbard is a tempo-driven runner as an outside-zone back playing peek-a-boo behind his blocks. His willingness to get upfield rather than bounce everything will be applauded, but he needs to use his vision and easy change of direction to become more creative on the second level as a pro. He needs to tighten up his ball security issues, but has the talent to become a committee back with upside for a zone-based rushing attack.
Strengths
  • Showed ability to carry a significant load.
  • Runs with good tempo.
  • Smooth downhill flow with efficient change of direction.
  • Instinctive through the traffic.
  • Accurate reads up to linebackers in outside zone.
  • Vision to recognize and get skinny through small creases.
  • Agile feet to spin or jump-cut away from tacklers.
  • Rarely bounces runs wide unnecessarily.
  • Angle tackles slide off loose, slippery hips.
  • Effective on screens and can work out of backfield against LBs.
Weaknesses
  • Is a little lighter than expected for the heavy tote total.
  • Below-average leg drive to break NFL tackles.
  • Not a fall-forward finisher.
  • Running style is more rigid than creative.
  • Needs willingness to improvise once he's on second level.
  • Average burst to outrun faster linebackers to the corner.
  • Fumbles come from carrying ball away from frame in space.
  • Needs to improve blitz recognition and pass pro technique.
