    More gloating- Chase

    People were saying he is not fast. No game speed.
    The message I replied to said, “has he ever taken the top off a defense”?

    Think about what we saw Sunday as you read my reply below:


    “Show me a fly route period. I cant find ONE.
    Is that because he cant run, or his QB was limited?
    Impossible to "take the top off" a defense, when you HAVE to slow down to catch the ball.

    I'll tell you this, with the way he throws those passes on tape, if that QB throws deep and the receiver is on a fly route at full speed....that is gonna be a pick.

    Fact. We know the guy can run a 4.4. He was timed. That is why they time you. It HAS to be he has "build up" speed (typical of long striders) which you will never see unless its a fly route.

    He "can" run that fast....its a fact. I think what we see on tape is that he lacks short "burst" speed.

    As I said earlier...kind of the opposite of AB.

    Visualize this:
    How does a DB stop Ben from targeting this dude underneath whenever he wants? Give a DB a quarter or two of that and he HAS to play him tight.

    Then you go deep...build up speed winds up deceptive speed is a straight sprint after 20 yards.

    Ben throws a no slow down over the shoulder.

    YOU NEVER SEE THAT THROW ON TAPE.

    I think THAT is what they envision. Ben "specifically" and this kid TOGETHER might be something special as their strengths compliment each other perfectly.”

    I had no concern over speed. My biggest concern with Claypool was how well can he track an over the shoulder pass at full speed cause you NEVER see that in his college tape. He is ALWAYS slowing down to make a contested catch even on deep routes.

    my biggest concern was that Claypool wasn't from Maryland or Virginia

    I agree given that is the only place we draft players from with Tomlin's son as head scout (sarcasm)

    welp, for a while it seemed like Tomlin only had eyes for Buckeyes. Looks like he's branched out.

    The Buckeye obsession seemed to dissipate after Dick LeBeau left.

    I'm still in shock and awe over what I've seen from him in only his first two games. Spectacular performances by a rookie.

    You shoulda just believed in my mock draft where I had the Steelers taking Claypool with the 1st pick. I always thought he had the most upside in the draft and his college highlights/tapes just showed a guy with little experience and unlimited upside.

    I finally found someone who said we got the "steal of the draft!" Not a board member...I don't think.
