Nick Chubb visit­ing teams ahead of NFL draft

The Standard Journal - - SPORTS - From staff re­ports

Sev­eral other NFL teams are sud­denly show­ing in­ter­est in Nick Chubb as the an­nual draft draws closer.

The star Ge­or­gia and Cedar­town Bull­dog run­ning back has ad­di­tional pro pro­grams seek­ing out his ser­vices in the back­field, with the big home team for Ge­or­gia among those Chubb is ex­pected to visit.

He is likely to stop by the At­lanta Fal­cons in the days to come, along with the Tampa Bay Buc­ca­neers af­ter an­nounced in past weeks that he’d be visit­ing with the Carolina Pan­thers as the count­down to the draft con­tin­ues.

Spec­u­la­tion over Chubb’s fu­ture is just one sto­ry­line from the Bull­dog from this past week.

He sported a Dale Mur­phy throw­back jer­sey and took to the stands of Sun­trust Park to take part in an an­nual tra­di­tion on open­ing day for the At­lanta Braves.

Chubb was honored by the Braves by de­liv­er­ing the com­mand “Play Ball!” to the Braves and Phillies dur­ing At­lanta’s open­ing day cel­e­bra­tions. News of team vis­its and an ap­pear­ance at Sun­trust Park are just a few of the many items float­ing around in the run-up to find­ing out where he’ll end up when the NFL comes back to train­ing camps in Au­gust 2018.

Chubb has been re­cently pro­filed and writ­ten about in Sports Il­lus­trated, ESPN and more ahead of the pro­fes­sional foot­ball draft.

He spent nu­mer­ous weeks fol­low­ing Ge­or­gia’s loss in the Na­tional Cham­pi­onship game to Alabama in early Jan­uary train­ing for the NFL com­bine in Cedar­town, uti­liz­ing his alma mater’s gym fa­cil­i­ties to work out and also help lo­cal play­ers im­prove their per­for­mance.
