Bradley Chubb not bothered by uncertainty of National Football League draft

The fifth-overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft received a very warm welcome on social media from current Broncos Chris Harris Jr. Now they're teammates, too. John Elway called Chubb the "best defensive player in the draft".

Broncos fans can't wait for him to get out there, either. Chubb is NC State's all-time leader in both sacks, with 25 for his career, and tackles for loss, with 54.5.

It's safe to say Miller approved of the pick. The Broncos' next pick is the 40th overall selection, early in the second round. Defensive end Mario Williams was the No. 1 pick in that draft.

"Absolutely, " Elway said in an interview with 9NEWS.

Coach Vance Joseph said seeing Bradley "there at five was definitely a surprise - and for sure exciting".

When asked about the possibility of signing Anderson at the Dolphins pre-draft press conference, Dolphins vice president Mike Tannenbaum said the team wouldn't explore that option until after this weekend's draft. "That's the next opportunity, and then we'll look at other things once we get through that". He's such a great player, such a dynamic player. Miller said last week he'd "be cool" if the Broncos selected Chubb. You can't win the Super Bowl without having a good quarterback.

If Elway sidesteps the deep class of quarterbacks, he'll have his choice of blue chippers that would provide immediate help to Keenum and Miller whereas a quarterback most likely wouldn't play until 2019.

Chubb is the 16th first-round pick in N.C. State's history and sixth since 2000.

"Wherever I am at on the field, if it is a pass play or run play, defenses have to know where I am at, because they know that I am going to do my job".
