It just doesn’t seem fair.
A player of Nick Chubb’s size, stature and position shouldn’t be able to lift that much weight. Yet somehow, the 5-foot-11, 227-pound former Georgia running back manages to do it.
He takes 405 pounds and power cleans it like it’s just another day at the office.

It may be a cliche by now, but perhaps only because it’s so true: Chubb truly is a human bowling ball on the football field.
His center of gravity is so low and his core seems so strong, the combination makes him really difficult to tackle. He also tied Penn State’s Saquon Barkley at the combine with 29 bench press reps for the most among running backs. There were plenty of offensive and defensive linemen who couldn’t hit that number.
Chubb’s draft profile on NFL.com projected him to go in the third or fourth round.
