  • Pittsburgh Steelers WR Chase Claypool claims he is a top-3 WR in the NFL.
  • After a stellar career at Notre Dame, Claypool has not lived up to expectations.
  • He got brutally roasted for his claim.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool is definitely a confident player. After a successful career at Notre Dame, he has yet to put together a 1,000-yard campaign in two seasons in the NFL.

Despite that, Claypool is full of confidence and made a shocking claim while appearing on the latest episode of the I Am Athlete podcast with LeSean McCoy, Brandon Marshall, and Adam “Pacman” Jones.

Here is what Claypool said:

“I know for a fact I am not like the rest of the guys in the NFL. I know I’m a top-five receiver, I know I’m a top-three receiver.”

Yeah, Claypool said he’s a top-three WR in the NFL.

Fans Are Brutally Roasting Chase Claypool For Saying He’s A Top-3 WR In The NFL

Obviously, this statement did not go over well with NFL fans. Tyreek Hill, Justin Jefferson, Davante Adams, Cooper Kupp, Ja’Marr Chase, Deebo Samuel, and the list just goes on and on of wide receivers that deserve to be in that top-3 conversation.

Claypool, as of now, should not be anywhere near that list, and the consensus among fans is in agreement.

Let’s not discredit Claypool for having overflowing confidence in his ability. After all, he has only been in the NFL for two years and had to compete with Diontae Johnson and JuJu Smith-Schuster for touches. So, maybe he turns it on and becomes one of the best WRs in the NFL.

Who knows. But, as of now, he isn’t anywhere close to top-3 material.
