Revisiting Nubin’s College Career

Nubin played in 12 games and had six tackles during his freshman season at Minnesota. He finished his sophomore season with 41 tackles, one interception, and one forced fumble. Nubin made 52 tackles with one sack and led the team with three interceptions as a junior.

He suffered an injury that caused him to miss the final two games of his senior season but returned to play in the 2022 Pinstripe Bowl. Nubin finished the season with 55 tackles, two tackles for loss, a team-high four interceptions, and one forced fumble and was named second-team All-Big Ten.

After considering entering the 2023 NFL Draft, Nubin decided to utilize the extra year of eligibility granted to college athletes who played in the 2020 season due to the coronavirus pandemic and return to Minnesota for a fifth season.

In his final season, Nubin was named Second-team Associated Press All-American, first-team All-Big Ten Conference, and tied for sixth in the FBS with five interceptions. He started 12 games (53 tackles, one sack, four PBUs, one forced fumble) and set a school record with 13 career interceptions.

Nubin’s Potential in the NFL

Pro Football Network draft analyst Ian Cummings said Nubin is a potential top-32 prospect and is in the mix to be the top safety prospect in this class.

“In coverage, Nubin is fluid, physical, adaptable, efficient, variable with his technique, a quick processor, and a ravenous turnover generator,” Cummings wrote. “In run support, Nubin is a tenacious downhill attacker with instant angle recognition skills, play strength, and tackling ability. Nubin’s explosiveness and ball skills, in particular, are traits that naturally contribute to his playmaking ability.”

In regards to strengths, Cummings said Nubin is an elite processor and active communicator with two-high and single-high capabilities, excellent instincts, and a feel for positioning and hip leverage when playing in space.

For weaknesses, Nubin does not quite have elite sinking capacity when following sharp in-breaking routes and occasionally resorts to grabbing and tugging at WRs to keep leverage in man coverage.
