Hubbard is Alabama’s top pass-rushing specialist and his athleticism as well as his size makes him a great fit as an OLB in an NFL 3-4 defense. He rushes hard up field and gets pressure, which forces quarterbacks to escape out of the pocket. Scouts would like to see him have more production in the sack department. He has steadily improved his play in the run game this year and added more weight to his imposing 6-6, 252-pound frame in the offseason. Hubbard is an athletic, instinctive and physical player that NFL scouts believe has excellent potential at the next level.
