This week’s topic:
Notre Dame receiver Chase Claypool became the Steelers top draft pick in 2020. Yet, he was the 11th receiver taken off the board, as the Steelers lacked a first-round selection. No matter. Claypool has quickly become the most highly touted rookie pass-catcher heading into the 2020 season. But it’s one thing making acrobatic grabs in practice. Can Claypool do it in regular season? And come December, will Claypool still be standing head-and-shoulders above all those other receivers in his 2020 draft class? I give you all the national NFL praise being heaped upon Claypool – along with a very intelligent take on why his impact as a rookie could be limited – in this ‘Dog Days’ edition of the Steelers Update Podcast. Plus, I debunk another national media knock against Big Ben Roethlisberger and shine a light on the other Steelers rookie who just might become a star on defense. So listen up, Steelers fans!
