Chase Claypool- I know you want to talk about him

Recommended Posts

So this is where you do it.

6’4 238

32.5 arms

9 7/8 hands

80 wingspan


4.42 40

40.5 vert

126 broad jump

19 bench reps  
 

Do you want him at 22?

 

If so, play him all over or mostly at WR or TE?

 

Which position would be more dominant or have a better chance to make the HoF?

 

He went from a possible target in rd 2 to if we want him, we have to snag him at 22, if he’s even there.  Did that happen today?  I was really impressed, although his gauntlet still just looked ok

 

He’d be such a great fit with JA imo.

I want to see the web chart on him..... DK went end of 2nd, and this year is deep. I still think he will be available in the late 2nd.

I was thinking that he looked like Kelvin Benjamin, but KB ran a 4.61 40. I’m not sure what would be better.....a big fast guy like Claypool or a small super fast guy like Ruggs.

I’d go with the one who can get separation quicker.

Best part is he’s Canadian, so you know he won’t complain about buffalo winters

 

What winter would he or any player have to deal with?

That 40 time just made him a 1st rounder maybe. 

It will and hopefully push him to locked before us at 22, which will hopefully push someone down to be available to us at 22 if we go wr direction

Another big guy who ran well is Denzel Mims, with 4.39 unofficial 40.  He's not quite as big as Claypool, but was more productive at Baylor than Claypool was at Notre Dame.  Jalen Raegor ran a disappointing 4.47 - not slow, but not the burner he was touted to be, and at 5'11" he doesn't have size and catch radius as bragging points.  He did have a nice vertical though (42").  Claypool might be a boom/bust type player in the first round where the pressure to succeed is so high.  He has off the charts measurables, but wasn't very productive in college.  Part of that was having a crap QB and an offense that didn't feature a high powered passing attack.  He's not reap twitchy, not real crisp in his route running, doesn't have short area quickness or burst out of his breaks.  Some of that can be coached up, but there is potential for him to disappoint.

I don't know...maybe like an AFC Championship home game in Orchard Park in late January.  We had a couple of those once upon a time.

I saw little of him this year, and didn’t realize he was that LARGE. He made an athletic play at the back of the end zone in the senior bowl that caught my eye. I think it was called OB, but I don’t care. It was a serious WR football play. 

 

Now, where is he a value pick? I have no idea, but at the right price I’d love a guy like that!

Having been born and raised in WNY I can pretty astutely affirm that 2’ of snow in November can happen. 

 

Perhaps you remember this??????

Outliers - thank you for making my point.

As a life long Irish fan, Ive watched every game. Claypool was a project guy when brought in from CA. He didn't buy into immediately and was one of Kellys doghouse guys early on. The size and speed was seen immediately in spring camp. He wasnt given significant playing time until junior year where he was still just the number 2 behind Boykin, but still put up decent numbers. This last season he was the true number one and took on that leadership role everyone was waiting all this time for. He got better and better every season and even every game Senior year. I think if he had eligibility to play another season he would put up ridiculous numbers like 1500+yards and 15+TDs. He completely owned in the Camping World Bowl. Hes a guy that is going to benefit from NFL coaching and is going to get even better. 6'4 with a 40" verticle, and this guy catches everything. I said way back he was going to put up great combine numbers and kill our chances of getting later rounds. Will prob have to spend a 2nd on him to get now. Mike Evans with a little more speed and wiggle, sign me up please!
