Bradley Chubb, a relentless edge rusher, enters his senior season to great expectations, and for good reason.

He's being discussed as a potential first-round pick in next year's draft after recording 22 tackles for loss (only Mario Williams has had more in a single season for North Carolina State), including 10.5 sacks, last season. In fact, Chubb was chosen to wear Williams' No. 9 jersey.

He's one of college football's top pass rushers, and was a team captain for the Wolfpack last season. He has NFL bloodlines, too. Chubb is the brother of Lions linebacker Brandon Chubb and the cousin of Georgia running back Nick Chubb.

CFB 24/7 is marking the days to the start of the 2017 season by counting down the top 25 players in college football.

Pulling back the curtain on the vote

Chubb received votes from three of seven CFB 24/7 experts, with two analysts placing him in their top eight. He's the third-highest rated edge rusher in the #CFBTop25 countdown.

What some of our analysts are saying about Chubb

"Big, athletic edge rusher with the length and versatility to create havoc off the edges. Chubb's combination of size, athleticism and superb combat skills allows him to overwhelm blockers with finesse or power-based moves." -- Bucky Brooks

"If you are in the ACC, you know about this guy. If you reside elsewhere, get to know him. He recorded 22 tackles for loss, including 10 sacks, in 2016, and I would not be surprised to see his sack number increase by 5 this season." -- Charles Davis

Where do fans rank Chubb?

We asked Twitter users who they considered the best player in college football. Chubb didn't receive a vote. It's not a stunner that he didn't receive any fan support, since he flies a bit under the national radar despite his accomplishments. His cousin, Georgia's star running back Nick Chubb, fared much better in the fan vote, finishing seventh.
