NFL great Ladanian Tomlinson: Nick Chubb will win rushing title in 2020

2006 NFL MVP LaDainian Tomlinson has tipped Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb to have a huge 2020 season as he absolutely believes the 24-year-old is one of the best players at his position in the league. Chubb, who was selected by the Browns in the second round of the 2018 NFL draft, has been an absolute stud for his team since arriving to the league as he has quickly established himself as one of the players at the position.

Chubb had an outstanding 2019 campaign as he finished second in rushing yards last year with 1,494 yards on 298 attempts and he also scored a total of eight touchdowns. Prior to the last season, many expected the Browns to be one of the most dynamic and efficient teams but their extremely talented offense failed to meet the expectation, and as a result, the team missed the play offs.

Coach Freddie Kitchens paid the price for a disappointing year as the Browns fired him shortly after their 2019 campaign finished -- but now the hope is that the new coach Kevin Stefanski will make the most out of the talented Browns offense.

One of the greatest running backs ever speaks highly of Chubb

"Since Nick Chubb was drafted in 2018, all he has done is broken the most tackles of any running back,” Tomlinson said on NFL Total Acces, as revealed on 247 Sports.

“He graded out the highest, according to Pro Football Focus, of any running back. And he’s only second in yards after contact to Derrick Henry. "This guy is in the perfect offense. Kevin Stefanski’s offense is going to be two tight (ends), going to be run heavy, play action will come off that.

That’s the perfect offense for Nick Chubb. He’s going to get the opportunity. I’ll go even a step further, guys. Nick Chubb will lead the league in rushing next year. He’s going to get the opportunities. "I bet you he’ll approach almost 300 carries.

I know they’ve got Kareem Hunt in the backfield. But Nick Chubb is a dog. And it’s about time people started respecting this man”. Tomlinson, a Hall of Fame running back, made the Pro Bowl five times during his successful career and two times he led the league in rushing yards. Chubb receiving such a praise from one of the greatest running backs ever says a lot of about his talent and game.
