There were plenty of people who criticized the Cincinnati Bengals for not spending their top pick in the 2021 NFL draft on offensive line help, and opting for a wide receiver instead.
After watching what Ja’Marr Chase has done over the first seven weeks of his NFL career, it’s safe to say the Bengals made the right choice.
With his 200-yard performance in Sunday’s blowout win over the Baltimore Ravens, Chase now has 754 receiving yards through his first seven games, the most of any rookie in NFL history.
The former LSU star is making the same kind of big plays he did in college, averaging a ridiculous 21.5 yards per catch so far this season.
Not bad for a guy who didn’t even play football in 2020.
