Despite being selected in the second round (35th overall) in the 2018 NFL Draft, Nick Chubb entered his rookie season third on the team's depth chart. But even with Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson slotted ahead of him, it didn't take long for the Georgia product to prove he was capable of being something special.

After receiving seven total carries in Cleveland's first three games, Chubb showcased his breakaway speed with touchdown runs of 63 and 41 yards in the Browns' Week 4 loss to the Oakland Raiders. Although he ultimately never received more than three carries in any of Cleveland's first six games, his raw talent ultimately became too much to ignore as the Browns traded Hyde to the Jacksonville Jaguars just months after signing him to a free agent deal.

Despite starting just nine of the Browns' 16 games, Chubb rushed for 996 yards and 8 touchdowns, adding 149 receiving yards and 2 touchdown receptions in his rookie season. The 23-year-old has only built on that success in his second season in Cleveland and currently leads the NFL in rushing with 1,175 yards and 7 touchdowns through the team's first 12 games.

Other candidates for the Browns All-Decade Running Back included Peyton Hillis, Trent Richardson and Isaiah Crowell. But it was Chubb's combination of early production and undeniable promise that made him the most popular choice.
