Bradley Chubb didn’t need to wait long to hear his name called in the 2018 NFL Draft. The Denver Broncos selected him with the fifth overall selection, sending him to the AFC West.
At Denver, Chubb will be paired with one of the feared defensive players in the entire league. Linebacker Von Miller has registered double-digit sacks in six of his seven seasons in the NFL, and while he hasn’t been able to match his career high of 18.5 set in 2012, he is still a dynamic weapon.
With Chubb and Miller part of the Broncos defense, Denver will have two players that can get to the quarterback and neutralize opposing offenses. Fans on Twitter certainly had a lot to say about the pick. While we can’t get to every single bit of reaction, here’s just a sampling of what was said on social media on Thursday night.
