I just dont see it with Hubbard

I'm not saying I want him to be the pick, it's just a weird feeling I have. 

It's the same feeling I have had with other dealings with the Titans.

 

Hope I am wrong.

In a way he doesnt. He really lacks production and speed. I think he'll be there at 57.

I was referring more to the intangibles.

Hard worker, max effort on the field, very smart

Was he a captain? Big ten player of the year? Theres more to it than being a hardworker. Look at the stats and accolades Davis, Jackson and Conklin put up. Hubbard is just a guy compared to them.

Lol don't all teams want these traits in their players?

Yes, but not every team sticks to it.  Some teams are will to put up with character risks, others won't.

I think it’s safe to say one of the 5 will absolutely be a Titan

 

Josh Sweat

Justin Reid

Sam Hubbard

here is the full ESPN Nation mock draft, interesting point that it tied as the most accurate major media mock draft in 2017, picking 8 correct team/player picks.

 

 

If we took Hubbard over Payne/Ridley/Reid I would lose my shit

Hubbard is tough to figure because the rap on him is that he lacks athleticism but his combine numbers outside of the 40 were very good. His 3 cone was excellent & may have been the best of all the edge players, it was definitely up there. His vertical was also excellent & his broad jump good. The problem is his 40, he didn't run at the combine & he mentioned something to the media about waiting to his pro day because he hadn't had enough training in the 40, or something to that effect. Then he ran a 4.95 at his proday, which means the combine 40 would've been over 5. That's rough. I'd feel much better about him if he even ran a 4.8, because his other drills were so good.

 

The other thing that bothers me is his relative lack of production. For a kid who supposedly has very advanced hand usage & top notch technique, he wasn't very good in college. Like it said in the SackSeer from FO I posted, Sweat actually had about the same amount of sacks per game & also had a lot of passes defensed, which they claim correlates very much to being a good pro edge. 

 

So Hubbard really doesn't have the athletic or technique upside. Sweat was just as good a player, maybe better, and he dealt with injuries that impeded his development & apparently wasn't asked to turn it loose to get the QB very often in FSU's scheme. And he blows him away athletically.
