Former Cedatown and Georgia Bulldog Nick Chubb is hoping that he'll soon be chosen to wear a new jersey in the coming months when the NFL Draft takes place, but for now he's been focused on one thing: showing off his talents at the NFL Combine.
Most recently, Sports Illustrated's Jonathan Jones stopped by to talk with Chubb and coach Michael Worthington at Cedartown High School while he was working out ahead of the combine. Here's an excerpt from the Feb. 27 article:
"This is the place that prepared Chubb for all his success so far. This is where he rushed for nearly 7,000 rushing yards in high school, and where he won his Georgia shot-put state title. This is where he power-cleaned 405 pounds as a senior and where he trained leading up to his SEC Freshman of the Year season with 1,547 rushing yards for the Bulldogs."

Of note: Chubb's draft profile on the NFL website has incorrect information on it about where he graduated from high school.
His final score in the combine was a 5.68, with a 4.52 second 40-yard dash, took 29 reps on the bench press, has a 38.5 inch vertical jump, completed the 3-cone drill in 7.09 seconds and completed a 20-yard shuttle in 4.25 seconds.
The draft starts on April 26 and continues through April 28.
