What does Wyatt Hubert of Kansas State football do if the season is pushed back?
Wyatt Hubert, since arriving in Manhattan, has done nothing but produce and produce. In his two seasons thus far, he has recorded 11.5 sacks to go along with 20 tackles for loss and a forced fumble. Versatile and disruptive, Hubert shows an ability to get at the quarterback, but also an ability to help play the run, providing 53 total tackles during his two years on the defense thus far.
The NFL loves versatile defenders capable of getting after the quarterback, especially from both sides of the line of scrimmage. Hubert can do that.
With good size, listed at 6’3″ and 258 pounds, he has the size to help a defense that wants to utilize him as a defensive end or a scheme asking him to play more of an outside linebacker. Often the one player offenses make it a point to find pre-snap, Hubert has shown an ability to disrupt.
Of the players on this list, Hubert is the player that likely needs a 2021 season perhaps more than anyone else. With a strong showing, he is likely an early round pick with his ability to disrupt the passing game while capable of playing against the run. However, currently, he might be a little off the board in terms of ability to sit out the season and prepare for the draft.
Hubert could choose to opt out of the 2020 season if it’s played in 2021 and choose to come back in 2021 and play that season out, targeting the 2022 draft instead. I anticipate seeing Hubert for one more season in Manhattan, just when that is remains to be seen.
