Cincinnati Bengals Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 1 - Pick Number: 5 (CIN)

Projects to be the first receiver to hear his name called in the 2021 draft and almost certain to be a top 10 pick. Was the favorite target for Joe Burrow's last year and is capable of being a #1 receiver in the pros. In 2019 Chase set a number of SEC records (including for receiving yards (1,780) and touchdowns (20)).  Clearly, LSU was a strong team in 2019 and Chase played on a loaded team with a top-tier college QB and so teams will need to be careful not to get blinded by the numbers.

A muscular, physical player, Chase has quick feet. You can't easily jar him off balance in the first five yards, and you’re going to have a really hard time either matching his feet or getting a bead on what they're telling you. 

He has good but not great speed - likely will time in the high 4.4's, but more than makes up great route running and an overall quality technique. He is also built like a running back and can be a nightmare on reverses- similar to the NIner's Deebo Samuel.

At 6' he does not have a perfect size, but despite that is still able to easily come down with contested balls as routine.

He should be a great pro with very few flaws and could quite easily become a pro bowl regular.

A top five pick.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
