From PFF’s Gordon McGuinness’ post about the SEC’s ten best returning players:
5. Georgia HB Nick Chubb
There’s somewhat of a leap to be made with Chubb, in that 2016 wasn’t his most impressive season, but he was coming off a serious knee injury. Despite that, the way he ended the season gives a realistic expectation that he can be back to his best in 2017, with 20 of his 39 missed tackles forced coming in the final five games of the year. Over the past three seasons, Chubb has averaged a forced missed tackle once every 4.3 carries, and has averaged 3.7 yards per carry after contact… [Emphasis added.]
If you do the math, that means Chubb’s shiftiness was back on track, career average-wise, over those last five games. If that wasn’t a mirage, with another offseason to prepare, imagine what kind of season he could have running behind an offensive line that’s merely competent.
