2021 NFL Draft Profile: Wyatt Hubert

Summary: The Kansas State pass rusher has serious speed on the outside. Hubert utilizes his strength with his physicality on the field. He can speed rush around a lineman or bull rush his way to the backfield. His lower body strength is what stands out most on film. Hubert has elite bend in his lower frame. His explosive first step can have offensive tackles struggling to contain him off the line of scrimmage. Hubert’s hand usage is technical and done with a purpose. A well blended combo of strength and speed are used well by Hubert in pass situations. His arm length (3000) was less than great at the Senior Bowl and it showed in his game. Hubert struggled to get leverage on taller offensive tackles, which led to some mismatches on the outside. As a stand up outside pass rusher, scheme could present an issue to Hubert throughout the draft process. Hubert was mostly used as a pass rusher at Kansas State, but did rotate in on run downs occasionally. He would excel in a 3-4 scheme as a situational pass rusher.
