Stephen Lew-USA TODAY Sports analyst Daniel Jeremiah revealed his Top 50 prospects for the 2021 NFL Draft, which included LSU wide receivers Ja'Marr Chase and Terrace Marshall Jr.

Chase, who opted out before the 2020 season, checked in at No. 2 on the list behind Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawerence. Marshall was No. 36 on the list and was the 6th highest wide receiver.

2) Ja'Marr Chase, WR
School: LSU | Year: Junior

Chase is a dominant player on tape. He lined up both outside and in the slot at LSU. He defeats press coverage with a combination of foot quickness and upper-body strength. He creates separation off the line of scrimmage and he can also find another gear when the ball is in the air. He is a clean route runner. He won't gear down in traffic and has very strong hands to pluck and play through contact. He attacks 50/50 balls and consistently wins. Chase is at his best after the catch. He routinely breaks tackles and can make defenders miss, too. He did have a couple drops when the ball was on his back hip but I have no concerns about his hands. Overall, I love Chase's attacking style of play and see him as a faster version of three-time Pro Bowl selectee Anquan Boldin.

36) Terrace Marshall Jr., WR
School: LSU | Year: Junior

Marshall is a tall, long and athletic wideout. He's played in the slot and outside. He is at his best as a vertical target on seams, corners and post routes. The former Tiger has a smooth, easy stride and he builds speed down the field. He isn't a crisp route runner, but he does know how to use his body to shield off defenders. He had some drops on the tape I watched, but he makes up for them with big plays. He's very physical and competitive after the catch. He breaks a lot of tackles. Marshall hasn't put it all together yet, but all of the tools are there for him to be a solid No. 2 receiver in the NFL.

I don’t get it. Why wouldn’t “yaboidarrell” spend his time on BAMA’s site, versus trolling LSU fans. ?????

The joy that Chase brought me in 2019 far out weighs the disappointment of him opting out. Dude doesn't owe the fans anything, he brought this state and school plenty and will continue to for years to come.
