Mario Williams, the previous owner of the Wolfpack sack record, went No. 1 overall in 2006.

Bradley Chubb, on most teams, would be welcomed as a much-needed pass rusher, brought in to help anchor a team's efforts to get after the opposing quarterback.

The former Hillgrove High School standout was drafted by the Denver Broncos with the fifth pick of the National Football League draft Thursday.

As mentioned on the Draft broadcast, Denver had a deal in place to swap picks with the Buffalo Bills but when Bradley Chubb was still on the board the Broncos chose to use the pick.

The retired linebacker spent the final three seasons of his career with the Broncos, combining with Von Miller to give Denver an awesome pass rush.

- North Carolina State's all-time leader in sacks will be chasing quarterbacks for the Denver Broncos in 2018.

Miller was enthusiastic about possibility of teaming with Chubb last week.

Miller said last week he'd love to have Chubb lining up next to him: "He's Khalil Mack and Von Miller put together", Miller said with a laugh.

What's next: With three picks coming on the second day of the draft - Nos. He captured the Bronko Nagurski Trophy as the nation's top defensive player, and he also won the Ted Hendricks Award as the nation's top defensive end. He joins his brother, Brandon, who is with the Detroit Lions, Engram and Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake.
