Photo Credit: John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

Adrian Hubbard  - OLB – Alabama Crimson Tide:

-Height: 6’ 6”

-Weight: 252 lbs.

-Redshirt Junior


  • Has versatility to become a DE; naturally a OLB
  • He has a massive wingspan; helps when trying to tackle players
  • Quick on his feet; has abnormal speed for a OLB
  • With his speed, he can get to the point of attack quicker, forcing more sacks and stops
  • Can play in both a 3-4 and 4-3 defense.
  • His speed helps him provide solid coverage on receivers
  • Very athletic – helps him get around the offensive line easier


  • Has a below average reaction time
  • Looks hesitant on the field at times; confidence is a question
  • Inconsistently attacks the offensive line while upright
  • Needs more coaching on how to become a dangerous pass rusher


Hubbard has the talent to become one of the best linebackers in the draft. He should be one of the first linebackers taken in the 2014 NFL Draft. He has the speed to get around the offensive line, accumulating a lot of tackles that result in negative yardage. He has a huge wingspan, which contributes to tackling players with ease. His inconsistency and questionable confidence hurts his draft stock, dropping him into the second round.

Projected: Second Round Pick

    Interesting post. I haven’t seen much on him, I’m just beginning to look at OLB for this year’s draft, so I enjoyed the read. The only problem I see for the Jets, is that they may not address the position until the third round. I think it will be TE in the first, WR in the second, or visa versa.

      @Paul, yea I totally agree with getting a Wr in the first two rounds. If Eric Ebron isn’t available by our pick, I don’t know if we should draft a TE like Amaro — we could just sign Cumberland, take a WR in round 1 hubbard in round 2 and go from there. and I’ll look at Attaochu later! Thanks for the read.

    Check out Jeremiah Attaochu from Georgia Tech 6’3″ 242. Projected as a third rounder. See what you think
