The Broncos selected NC State edge rusher Bradley Chubb with the fifth pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, Thursday night. He finished his senior season with 26 tackles for a loss, 10 sacks, three forced fumbles and more, voted an AP All-American and the victor of the Bronko Nagurski Trophy (best defender in college football).

In 2017, Chubb won the Bronko Nagurski Award which is given to the Most Outstanding Defensive Player in the country and the Ted Hendricks Award which is given to the nation's top defensive end.

The Broncos' first-round draft pick is excited about his upcoming move to Denver.

Chubb also provides the antidote for the constant double- and triple-teams that opponents have thrown at Miller over the last two years. 40, 71 and 99 - the Broncos will nearly certainly take a long look at a deep group of running backs as well as a collection of cornerbacks and safeties who can help their defense.

While the Broncos were rumored to be interested in a quarterback, they opted to select Chubb and pair him with linebacker Von Miller to give them two very good pass rushers off the edge.

"I am a guy who is going to come to the field and demand respect wherever I am on the field - whether it is in the slot, whether it is on the outside, on the right or the left", Sutton said during a conference call.

It's something he did better than anyone in Wolfpack history, including former No. 1 overall pick Mario Williams.

"I get it", he said. It was just something I was raised with. Positions the Broncos could target include offensive line and quarterback. He's a great fit, he's a hard-worker and he plays 120 percent all the time. "There's not a whole lot more you can do than that".

President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway even hopped on Twitter to tell Broncos Country why he brought the standout pass rusher to Denver.

The other was Central Florida cornerback Mike Hughes, a native of New Bern who played his first college season at UNC in 2015.
