As a three-time Pro Bowler, Joe Haden knows a thing or two about matching up with big-time wide receivers. And the Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback likes what he sees out of rookie wide receiver Chase Claypool.

Ben Roethlisberger is quickly building chemistry with WR Chase Claypool

The Steelers are just two weeks into 2020 training camp, and Ben Roethlisberger is already building a rapport with his new wide receiver, Chase Claypool.

Why not? He's a big kid with lots of potential and they are saying he's working his but off so I'm all in. He may very well be the best WR of this class and that's saying a lot because there are some outstanding guys here.

This is an important story. Remember for years Washington couldn't get on the field because lack of chemistry with Ben? Claypool seems to be getting it already.

I haven't seen much from camp outside of the little tidbits that the NFL has shown due to limited access with COVID going on.

That being said, what little I have seen from Ben... Dude is throwing a better ball. You can just see it. Just looks to have more zip on it, and the spirals are tight. Maybe I'm being overly optimistic, but it's definitely something that I noticed.

As for Claypool, this kid has all the makings of a star receiver but we haven't seen it on the field against defenses that hit. I'll be more excited when we see him get some playing time.

I'm not saying there isn't success at drafting other positions. But, whoever on the Steelers who is responsible for drafting receivers has been doing an awesome job for a long time. This is especially true the last 15-20 years, but even beyond that there just is a long tradition of greatness at WR going all the way back to Swann and Stallworth.

Claypool lasted until midway thru the 2nd round. To me he is a round 1 pick for us and better than a lot of other 1st round picks the past several years. Great game for him today and it's going to be fun watching him play every week.

Claypool is a matchup nightmare. Freakish combination of size and speed and he has good hands to boot.

This kid is only going to get better. Watching Darius Slay struggling to cover Claypool showed me that this kid is for real. Slay is no slouch at DB, and Claypool was victimizing him and pretty much anyone else that tried to cover him.

Teams are going to have to start rolling double coverage Claypool's way, which is only going to open things up for guys like Juju, Washington, and Johnson.

I do want to see the deep ball though. The offense could really open up if they can force defenses to back off. That'll open up the running game a little more as well.

Really excited to see this Claypool kid progress.

Someone ( I don't remember who) compared him to Calvin (Megatron) Johnson.That's a pretty high bar but from what we've seen so far this kid is pretty impressive. He out played a pretty damn good CB last week. So much so that Vilma quit referring to Slay as a shut down corner.

He regularly draws the Megatron comparison because they have nearly identical intangibles. They ran almost the same 40 time, they are around the same height, and reach. It's easy to look at them and draw the comparison by their physical appearance and athletic attributes. I would still say though that it's too early in his career to be dubbing Claypool the next coming.

Claypool has the "it" facture imho the only thing that can hold this player back is health or injury and already has a better head for the game and team concept them megatron.
