PLAYER EVALUATION

Chase broke the SEC single-season receiving record in 2019 and was one of Joe Burrows's go-to WR's. Chase has great hands, is a good route runner, and is good running after the catch. He is also a willing blocker in the run game. The big question is how well he will play outside of the structure he had at LSU under OC Joe Brady and catching passes from Joe Burrow, who had a historic season. Chase is an outstanding player who will undoubtedly find his way at the next level regardless of the system.

TEAM ANALYSIS

Other Considerations If Available:

Oregon OT Penei Sewell or Northwestern OT Rashawn Slater or LSU WR Ja'Marr Chase or Alabama WR DeVonta Smith or Florida TE Kyle Pitts

As intriguing as it might be to take WR Ja'Marr Chase, the Bengals need to go after the best available OT left on the board. The Bengals want Penei Sewell, and if the chips fall their way, they could land Sewell, who would be considered a number one overall in a lot of past NFL Draft scenarios.
