Well that didn't take long.

On Tuesday morning, the Denver Broncos released their first depth chart of the 2018 season and Bradley Chubb was already at the top of it. With just over one month before the start of the season on Sept. 9 for the Broncos against the Seahawks, Chubb has shot up the depth chart over Shane Ray -- who is slotted behind Von Miller.

Chubb, who played defensive end throughout his tenure at NC State, was instantly moved to linebacker once he arrived in Denver. The No. 5 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft was a standout during spring camp and has clearly made a name for himself throughout fall OTAs leading up to the regular season.

Despite only having a few months to learn the Broncos' system and make the move to linebacker, Chubb has leaned heavily on his past as a linebacker before arriving at NC State. He's also taking a lot from playing alongside Von Miller, one of the best -- if not the best -- linebackers in the league.

"I'm trying to learn everything that [Miller] can teach me," Chubb said on NFL Network. "Having DeMarcus Ware around helps out a lot as well. They probably don't even know this, but I go back and watch all of their rushes as well and see what works for them against different tackles and ask them about it later.

"It's just one of those things where I just try to learn as much as I can and try to implement it into my game."

Currently, Chubb is listed as the starter at the SAM linebacker position while Miller is slotted at the WILL linebacker spot. Shane Ray has been moved to the backup role behind Miller at the WILL, which comes as a bit of a surprise given that he was the returning starter at the SAM from last season.

Though he's only been in the NFL for a few months, Chubb has already learned a lot about being a linebacker at the NFL level.

"Tackles are a lot quicker than they were in college, so having that 'get off' is probably the most important thing now," Chubb said. "In college, you can get away with having just an OK 'get off.' Now you've got to be elite every time you get off the ball. That's one of the main adjustments for me."

While Chubb's quick rise up the depth chart may come as a surprise to those in the NFL, it's certainly not shocking to NC State fans. Chubb left Raleigh as the all-time leader in career sacks and tackles for loss, culminating in the ACC Defensive Player of the Year and Nagurski Award as a senior.

Yeah, he's going to be elite at the NFL level, too.
