09/07/13 - ROB RANG'S 09/06/13 TOP 32 2014 DRAFT PROSPECTS: 32. Adrian Hubbard*, OLB, Alabama (6-5, 252): Hubbard is the next Crimson Tide star on defense to keep an eye on. The lanky pass rusher recorded 10 tackles for loss, six sacks and three forced fumbles in a breakout sophomore campaign and could be on the verge of much bigger things. His length, athleticism and versatility (lines up as a DE as well as OLB) is even more intriguing than his statistics. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

08/15/13 - TOP ALABAMA PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 3. OLB Adrian Hubbard (6-5, 252, 4.76)*...Hubbard's combination of length, flexibility and power could earn him comparisons to former Oregon star Dion Jordan, the No. 3 overall pick in 2013 by the Miami Dolphins. Hubbard isn't as explosive off the snap as Jordan (in fact, Hubbard is often slow off the ball) but his long gait does help him build speed quickly and he has some bend to avoid blocks. He generally uses his speed to beat tackles off the corner but can surprise them with a strong bull rush and flashes a quick inside cut to complement both.
Belying his length, Hubbard is surprisingly effective against the run, showing good knee bend when taking on blocks, as well as the strong, long arms to take on, shed and make the tackle when the ball-carrier is near. Hubbard generates power on contact, pushing ball-carriers backward with his tackles. He is often asked to drop back into coverage, showing light enough feet, balance and speed to contribute in this role at the next level. Hubbard is a bit of a wild card. He is not extraordinary in any one category at this time but his ability to play at the line or in space is very intriguing. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
