Chase Claypool tracker


Recommended Posts

I really wanted the Colts to draft this guy, not only because of his freakish 50/50 ball ability, insane speed & physicality, and immediate big-time special teams skill, but because of his incredibly high ceiling.

 

 

For comparative purposes, Michael Pittman graded out at 53.1 in his first week of action.

 

Yes, it's one week.  And no, I'm not burying Pittman yet.

 

But I'm getting a little weary of the "it's hard for rookie WRs" excuse for Pittman.  My #1 concern for him when we drafted him was the fact that he racked up his numbers against soft Pac 12 defenses.  Notre Dame completely shut down Pittman last year by rolling a S over the top.

 

No team could stop Chase Claypool last year, no matter what they did.  Dude had an 11-yard AVG against UGA on the road.  Only higher average that game (12) was Kmet, another huge talent. 

 

Going to be tracking/comparing Claypool and Pittman in this thread all year, to see who ends up being the better 2nd round WR draft pick.

LOL, 1 game, 2 catches for 39 yards.

 

Hardly enough to lose sleep over or have hindsight in a draft, especially this early in the season.

 

Not losing sleep.  We'll see where things stand Week 16, which is the purpose of the thread.  Think it's going to make for a fascinating comparison.

I thought Claypool looked fast and strong in the Steeler game.

Didnt see much of him or Pittman in college but Claypool passes my “eye test” higher for no teal reason other than what i’ve seen.

 I was wondering what the “experts” thought made Pittman “better” for us.  Another words, why Reich and Ballard preferred Pittman.

One person's fascinating comparison is another's waste of time.

I am interested to see the comparison between Claypool and Pittman over the course of the season. When I was churning out mock drafts I'd always have one of the 2 in my drafts lol. Both big bodied receivers and I will admit, after the combine I really wanted Claypool but I like Pittman as well so hope he turns out better obviously.

Pittman with some nice catches today, too.

 

Claypool continuing to show his explosiveness. 

Yeah and Pittman was suppose to b the most ready Wr and Claypool was raw. Hmmmm. One thing I will say. The Steelers keep churning out wr's.

    • Last I checked Russell Wilson ain't a RB.  If you can't see that JT is stiff in the hips and so far his vision and anticipation is sub par and pretty predictable because just about every wisco rb in the past 20 years had the same problem adjusting to the nfl from the primitive badger running scheme them I really don't have a whole lot to add to you as a poster even though you make long posts.     So you don't recognize the difference in the line this year to Mcks rookie year.  Ok I dibt know how to respond to that.  I mean it would be like arguing with a kid.   You haven't noticed that JT tends to run right into the backs of his online them I wonder if you really watch the games.   You assign the lack of rushing production to play calling without taking into consideration that JT s lack of agility us likely a major cause of that.   We are going to have to run under center probably with a FB to maximize Jts game.  That is patently obvious.   The line sucks the QBs sucks the receivers suck and the coach sucks.  That is your real argument as to why this guy is not dazzling out is the backfield.   He will be good I short yardage .  Occasionally he will break long ones when their are wide obvious lanes.  He will gain some yds when schemed open in the passing game.   He MAY develop some vision over time and quit throwing away big gains by running into the backs of linemen  ut if this I am skeptical.   He will maximize his potential as a1 cut back if he learns to anticipate but this is often instinctive and not guaranteed.   We shall see.
    • Sweet Jesus - isn’t it about time for you to take another long winter’s nap?   Go get some rest and come back in the spring with tales of Player X is a future hall of fame level player. 
    • I am aware of who Philly has at the position.  Does not impact the point at all.    Nobody was giving up a 2nd round pick for AB.    My entire point is no one is giving up that high of a pick for Ertz with his current circumstances.    If your proposed deal was offered to Philly they would take it in a nanosecond. No one will though. 
    • Yeah man.  Just about anything but an Achilles.  No guarantee he and Hooket will even walk right anymore 
    • Honestly, keep running well and improving your vision and find the holes. The YPC is becoming very consistent and solid. Just find the holes, don't fumble, and you should be alright.   The way teams are stacking the box Vs him just shows how good he actually is already. Rivers isn't doing him any favors tbh.
