Georgia has truly been a running back factory in recent years. The Bulldogs brought us Todd Gurley, and in this year's draft class we have Nick Chubb andSony Michel (as the next stud, D'Andre Swift, waits in the wings).
Chubb -- at least, before his season-ending left knee injury in 2015 -- might have been the best of the bunch. Better even, perhaps, than Gurley.
Had Chubb not injured his leg, it's very possible he would have been looked at as just as strong of a prospect as his Georgia teammate, Gurley. As a freshman, Chubb rushed for 1,547 yards and 14 touchdowns on 7.1 yards per carry. As a sophomore, before his injury, he had 747 yards and 7 touchdowns on just 92 carries, good for a ridiculous 8.2 YPC. For comparison, Gurley never averaged more than 6.2 YPC in a full season (although he was more involved as a receiver than Chubb ever was).
