Ja'Marr Chase 2019 was probably the most dominant season a receiver has had since Randy Moss's in 1997 coming out of Marshall and receivers like Ja'Marr Chase only arrive maybe one a decade. He was as vicious and relentless a 6' and 210 lbs. receiver can be with unbelievable highlights showing him simply dominate and break cornerbacks from game to game. He's a freaky strong player for his size and was a lost impossible press cover by cornerbacks in 2019, often tossing them to the side manhandling them downfield. Does an excellent job keeping defensive backs from getting into his chest and swiping their hands away quickly and bursting up field. By far, the most explosive receiver in this class with his ability to go from 0-60 in an instant get up field in a flash. He's an excellent route-runner with a lengthy route tree of short, intermediate, and deep passes that even the best cornerbacks in college football found extremely difficult to cover. He has freakish agility which allows him to stop and change direction on a dime which proved to be impossible for cornerbacks to deal with on short routes. He's as tough as nails when having to catch passes over the middle where he is willing to take a shot from safeties and almost always holds onto the ball. On deep routes, he's one of the best at tracking the football and catching at it's high point. He's a terrific contested catch receiver with his intensity and powerful frame to go vertical and rip the ball away from defenders. Elite hands that are big and strong to quickly catch passes and hold onto them. He plays with an unrelenting motor and intensity that few receivers can match in college and even in the pros. He's a dynamo after the catch and is usually breaking tackles and making defenders in space. He plays angry and runs hard after the pass and if he doesn't get into the end zone on a deep ball or long run he's visibly pissed about it. He's as consistent as a receiver can be and brings his fire competitive nature to every game he plays in. He's an even force in the run game with excellent blocking downfield.
He can on occasion drop a pass although it's very rare, his catch radius isn't great and does need to have at least a shot at catching a pass if he hopes to bring it down. He played on an LSU offense that featured Heisman winning quarterback and #1 overall pick Joe Burrow, #22 pick Justin Jefferson, #32 pick Clyde Edwards-Helaire, one of the best offensive head coaches in America in Ed Orgeron, and the best offensive line in college football so to say that Ja'Marr Chase was the only great player on his team wouldn't be accurate. He opted out of 2020 to prepare for the draft and it could affect his draft stock in 2021 as recency bias could play a role.
Physically and technically, there is no better receiver in this draft class and without Ja'Marr Chase on the 2019 Tigers roster I guarantee you they don't even make the playoffs let alone get close to the championship game. He earned the Biletnikoff award for the nations best receiver and likely could do it again in 2020 if he has another dominant season close to 2019. He's a guaranteed top 5 pick in the draft and should be a perennial pro bowler the moment he steps on the field and it isn't hard for me at least to imagine him giving his Gold Jacket speech at some point in the distant future. And if you need a comparison to realize how good he is, he's Antonio Brown without the circus and drama.
