Could Chase Claypool be the big #2 receiver we need?


Recommended Posts

He was a big weapon in Pittsburgh but has flopped in Chicago.  Was worth a #2 pick to Chicago just a year ago.  He is only 25.  He had two years at 850+ yards, with solid success percentage and catch percentage and a 14 Y/Rec & an 8+ Y/Tgt.  

There is talk that he is done in Chicago and they may not be able to find a trade partner.    Could be be a nice big target for Zach for a 5th or 6th pick?  Maybe at 6'4" and 238, he might not be a bad guy to have on sweeps.

Thought?

If Rodgers was healthy I'd be for it. He's not a good fit with a struggling inexperienced QB.

It's no coincidence Justin Fields has improved with him being absent 

The first legit argument.  Probably right.  

Miami traded for him so the point is mute.

Aside from really having fallen off a cliff, he's also not a fit attitude wise for this team. Hard pass.

Certainly, a 6'4" receiver who had two seasons like he had and is only 25, would never be available unless there were issues.  Not sure how much of the issues centered around his not getting the ball.  Point was a potential impact receiver for virtually free might be worth the risk.   Miami gave a 6th rounder for him.

What are the chances a talent anywhere near this would be available in the 6th round?  NONE!  If it doesn't work out, it would be the same as a 6th rounder not working out.  

Guy had some Garrett Wilson lite type stats in those two years. Miami, who definitely doesn't need a wide receiver took the chance.  We will get two chances to see what it's like putting our #3 corner on him versus Tua.
