2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about CHASE CLAYPOOL: Notre Dame, 6043 238 4.44. Three-year starter, Abbotsford, British Columbia. From little known high school recruit in Canada, to Notre Dame’s leader in special team tackles in 2016, all the way to Notre Dame’s leading receiver in 2019, Claypool has shown the kind of progression and hard work that will impress every coach in the league. Combine that with a set of tools that no other receiver in the class can match, and a credible argument can be made for him being one of the top players in the draft at receiver. He may be projected to a hybrid receiver/tight end role in the NFL but no matter what, he has the potential to be a dominant force. The ball skills and physical brand will make him a weapon that can be used on both offense and special teams right away and he has number one pass catcher potential. Can stick his foot in the ground and show immediate burst combined with enough long speed to get over the top. Has tremendous upside as a route runner. Excels at catching balls in traffic. Goes up and attacks the ball and will win as if the defender didn’t even exist. Can twist and turn toward balls away from his body. Hand strength is elite. The former safety is a weapon on special teams as a gunner and loves the role. Improved foot quickness off the line and his ability to get into his routes. Separation comes from his size & strength. Can improve his ability to sell his movement on double routes more effectively. 2019 stats: 66-1037, 15.7 ypr, 13 TD. OSR:3/51. First/second round. (A-32 1/2, H-9 7/8, VJ-40.5, SS-DNP).
