Oklahoma State’s Chuba Hubbard could be the Miami Dolphins answer at running back with workhorse potential.
Round 3 Pick 86
Oklahoma State RB Chuba Hubbard
With Najee Harris off the board late in the first round, my next favorite back in this draft is Chuba Hubbard.
Hubbard (6’ 207 lbs) isn’t as big as Najee Harris (6’2” 229 lbs) or is having as dominant of a season, but he is still an intriguing prospect.
Many expected Hubbard to stand out this season, but due to COVID and other factors he was unable to do so. But there was a reason Hubbard was viewed as the possible best running back in this class.
In 2019, Hubbard had 4-games where he rushed for over 200 yards including a 296 yard performance against 24th ranked Kansas State University. Whether it’s lack of touches, injuries, or lack of talent around him, Hubbard has had a bad 2020 season, but could still be a standout and a workhorse at the next level.
Round 4 Pick 117
FSU DT Marvin Wilson
Wilson being available this late in the draft still confuses me, especially since he was graded a first round pick last season. But, as i’ve said time and time again, if he is here I will take him.
The ability to stuff running lanes is something that the Dolphins are in desperate need of, especially if they are missing Christian Wilkins at any point once again. Wilson is also able to get to the quarterback and bring pressure.
I think Wilson won’t end up dropping this low, but if the Dolphins can pair him and Wilkins together, I think he would get back into his 2019 form and be a dynamic player for the Phins.
