2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about SAM HUBBARD: Ohio State, 6053 270 4.75. Junior entry and two-year starter from Cincinnati, OH. A hell bent for leather competitor who was second-team All-Big 10 and an academic All-America honoree. Finishes long and short pursuit. Pushes the pocket from the outside in the Buckeyes’ NASCAR package. Contain and technique conscious. Plays with leverage to walk an offensive tackle back to the quarterback. A disruptive and relentless player who book-ended two strong seasons. Plays both standing up and with his hand in the dirt in a four man front. Will also kick down inside and play a three technique at times. Good length, bulk, and arm extension. A good run defender closing down the off tackle seam. Keeps his outside shoulder free allowing him to easily disengage blocks. Physical wrap up tackler. A persistent pass rusher with an upfield burst to the quarterback. Works half a man and has a good understanding of set points. Good awareness to work inside when a tackle oversets. Gets push with his bull rush. Hubbard uses a variety of moves on his pass rush including a swipe, rip, and long arm. He also uses an arm over and spin move. Can change speed to power. Will get pushed by the quarterback at times. He doesn’t give up on a play. Will work until the whistle. Effective on twist and movement stunts. If healthy he should be a day one starter. 2017 stats: 42 T, 13.5 TFL, 7 sacks, 3 QBH, 2 FF. Edge speed:left 2.43, right 2.38. Did not run at Combine, his choice. First/second round. (A-33 1/8, H-10, BP-DNP, 10-DNP).
