2021 Draft - Who goes first, Chase or Smith ?
The Heisman winner was pretty impressive in the NC, but I would draft Chase before him. Smith is quite an athlete, but a 6’1”, 175 lb. WR needs to get in the weight room :-)

Smith will be a top 7 pick. Chase top 15.

Smith reminds me of Devontae Adams. Just an absolute nightmare.

Between the two:
6'1, 208 lbs
or
6'1, 175 lbs

Smith has game-changing speed like Tyreek, except he's taller. He isn't a purely a straight line speedster like Cooks

Chase plays big and while not elite speed like them, he's faster than a guy like Nuk.

What worries me is, can Smith gain 20 lbs and still be as effective as he is now? Because I don't think playing at 175 is going to be reasonable long term. The main concern is, his size will limit his potential IMHO.

I can imagine Chase being a guy like Adams or Nuk. I can imagine Smith being Calvin Ridley or a taller Brandin Cooks/Tyreek Hill.

Both will be elite, I think its purely who's body you think can hold up long term.

Smith reminds you of Adam’s? Adams is 6’3 to 6’4 and you’re comparing him to a guy that’s maybe 6’ 180 lbs.

Adams was 6’1 215 at the combine. Chase is more Adams than Smith. Chase also reminds me of DJ Moore, Chris Godwin

There aren’t many skinny guys like Smith out there. The closest comps are probably the former Bama guys in Ridley and Juedy. I kinda like Lee Evans as a “throwback” comp

Generally that rarely means what player is better, just what team falls in love with what player first.

Smith goes first, but who has the best rookie season.

re: 2021 Draft - Who goes first, Chase or Smith ?
Chase was 19 in his breakout year
1780 yards, 20 tds, 21.2 ypr



Smith in his age 19 season
8rec / 160yds / 3 TD

Smith age 22
117/1856/23


Chase should dazzle at the combine with a year off to train. Imo he would have to bomb the combine or get into some kind of trouble for Smith to jump him in the draft

If the Bengals Tackle is gone at four the next best thing for Burrow would be drafting Chase...Green looks done...

Smith is gonna be a bust just like Jeudy and Ruggs. Chase should 100% go first, and will be a top 5 receiver in the league.

I'm thinking more like Stefon Diggs... slender build, but good route runner, smooth in his breaks, and physical enough to beat the press vs. smaller corners...

he's not as physical as Ridley was/is, and while he's fast, I don't think he has the elite of the elite speed like Cooks or Hill...

WR's aren't taking as many big hits these days, so Smith's lack of size will probably be fine long term.

re: 2021 Draft - Who goes first, Chase or Smith ?
Smith goes first depending on draft order and trades. Cause if Miami sticks with Tua, they have to give Smith a really good look. He's the Heisman winner and has played with Tua.

Or they go with the tackle from Oregon. In that case, I think the next team that would consider taking a WR is Philly. And I think they'd also go with Smith.

Now for Chase it's a little foggy. Detroit and Carolina could go wideout, but I think they have needs elsewhere. Carolina has that Joe Brady/ Chase connection, but Brady might somehow be a head coach.
Denver should take a hard look at a QB. Dallas doesn't need a WR.

I think the Giants at 11 would be great for both parties. Giants already have a good defense, will get Barkley back, giving Daniel Jones a number one wideout would be great for that organization.

Doesn’t have close to tyreek hill speed’s who has Olympic runner type speed no one outside of marquise Goodwin has hill’s speed. Smith is fast but nowhere close to hill
