At this point... there is just no way I can confidently say Chase will be the better WR at the NFL level. I'd probably lean Chase.. but it's close. So they're both in the top tier for me and I'm happy with either.Mike11 wrote: ↑Thu Jan 14, 2021 11:42 amIs athlete only their BMI? Smith is extremely athletically gifted, his quick twitch and fluidity are damn impressive and he's very likely going to have a phenomenal combine. Also Devonta had 1200 14 tds, why are we acting like this is his only good year. Chase quiet literally only has year (unreal year). I love both for what it's worth, I think I lean Chase a little but its really tight for me.bjd5211 wrote: ↑Thu Jan 14, 2021 9:30 amAnd since when is winning the Heisman indicative of NFL success? There are many outside of the fantasy world who have Chase #1 too; Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks, PFF, The Draft Network and others in scouting community have Chase at #1, some don't even have Smith as the #1 Alabama WR. Chase is a bigger, better athlete than Smith and accomplished all same things Smith did (other than the Heisman) when he was 3 years younger than Smith was this season. Smith has the spotlight right now from the Heisman and National Championship, but that will fade between now and the draft and it will be clear Chase is the better pro prospect, and likely 1st WR drafted.
Chase is great, but I don't agree he was the #1 target at LSU just because he finished with the most receiving yards. Jefferson/Chase were both #1's in that offense. The idea that he is so good he pushed Jefferson to the number 2 role as a sophomore is a bit of fantasy. He's also 6' 207lbs which isn't exactly the ideal body type for his style of play, either.
