Realistically, Nick Chubb is going to thrive in any offensive system, as long as the offensive coordinator realizes his obvious talent and chooses to hand off the football to Chubb. While Chubb is coming off a gruesome knee injury last season, should he return anything close to pre-injury form, then the Georgia Bulldogs have themselves a serious Heisman contender at running back.
Expect head coach Kirby Smart and his coaching staff to proceed with extreme caution in playing Nick Chubb right off the bat. Chubb won’t play a down for the Dawgs in 2016 until he is at 100%. While Chubb could miss a game or two to start the season, he should feel close to 100% by the time UGA will have to travel to Oxford to play Ole Miss in Week 4.
With Chubb on the field, the Georgia Bulldogs can overcome most of their shortcomings and convince AP voters that this is a top 10 team in the nation. Nick Chubb is a transformative offensive talent that Dawg Nation is lucky to have for the rest of 2016.
While he probably will declare for the 2017 NFL Draft, given his previous knee injury and the position he plays, Nick Chubb will need to have an All-SEC type of season to give the Georgia Bulldogs any hope at playing for an SEC Championship in 2016 for a trip to the third annual College Football Playoff. With good health on his side, Nick Chubb should have a monster 2016 campaign for the Red and Black.
