At LSU’s Pro Day, Ja’Marr Chase did everything he needed to do to maintain his status as the top wide receiver in the 2021 NFL draft.

Chase recorded a 4.38-second 40-yard dash, a 41-inch vertical jump and an 11-foot broad jump. Those are outstanding athletic numbers that match his outstanding performance on the field.

Although he was only a full-time starter for one college season, as a sophomore in 2019, he was the best wide receiver in college football that year. Chase caught 84 passes for 1,780 yards and 20 touchdowns in 2019. He was slated to be the top wide receiver in college football in 2020, but he decided not to play and instead to focus on getting ready for the NFL.

Also running a 4.38-second 40-yard dash today was LSU’s Terrace Marshall, who was the Tigers’ leading receiver last year. Marshall had 48 catches for 731 yards and 10 touchdowns.

  1. Lions need this guy. I hope that he lands in Detroit. This would definitely help the offense and get it on the right path.

  2. Giants need to move up and Get this kid and their offense will be a triple threat

  3. …or Giants stay put and get either Smith, Waddle, Pitts, Parsons or one of the top OLine prospects. I’d say they stay put and let the draft fall to them. That, or they trade back a bit if there’s a team left out of the QB derby that wants to grab somebody.

    You guys got Golladay at 18 mill per clip. Detroit will prob draft this guy to replace him for much cheaper.

  5. I wonder how accurate these forty times are? It seems to be a little bit of home cooking with some of these guys. Terrace Marshall did not play like a 4.3 guy this year.

    If he makes it past #5.

  7. Best college WR as a SOPHMORE! Please grab him Bengals. I would love to have Pitts but I thought Chase looked like a top NFL WR at 19 so there is probably a lot more upside, plus he already has experience with Burrow.
