Tyler Nubin Highlights

Tyler Nubin Combine Results

To the disappointment of many, Tyler Nubin did not participate in the 2024 NFL Combine. We know his draft projection is fairly set, so there wasn’t too much pressure for him to participate in the drills. In addition to missing the combine, Nubin didn’t run at Minnesota’s pro day either due to having surgery on his lateral meniscus in his right knee during the offseason.

Nubin stated he should be good to go for training camp, and his choice to sit out for most of testing was due to some lingering tendinitis in his knee. Nubin did say however that he feels he is currently at about “90% right now.”

Tyler Nubin Scouting Report


Although Nubin played all over the field in college, he would fit best at strong safety at the NFL level. He has great instincts and does a good job reading the eyes of the quarterback. He has also shown to be a willing tackler in run defense when needed. He’s good at tracking the ball in the air and has pretty decent hands as well.


One of the biggest weaknesses for Nubin is his lack of speed and acceleration. He doesn’t have the gear needed to keep up with speed demons downfield, and he has trouble keeping up with receivers off the line of scrimmage at times when in man coverage. When it comes to run defense, while he is willing to help, he often takes bad angles and doesn’t force opponents to the sideline effectively at times.

What to Expect From Tyler Nubin in 2024

Out of all the safeties in this draft class, Tyler Nubin is the most ready to play at the NFL level. He can easily slide in as the starting free safety for the Giants. He will certainly be a solid option and a nice safety blanket over the top if that’s where he’s placed. If the Giants put him at strong safety to replace the departed Xavier McKinney, he may struggle a bit as he can take some bad angles in run defense and doesn’t have great speed or acceleration.
