Former NFL Scout Praises Ja'Marr Chase, Believes Joe Burrow Will Have Big Season

This is big time praise for the Bengals' rookie wide receiver.
Publish date:

CINCINNATI — The Bengals are hoping to right the ship this year after posting five straight losing seasons. 

They've added plenty of talent in their past two draft classes, including star quarterback Joe Burrow and wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase. 

Throw in Tee Higgins, Tyler Boyd and Joe Mixon and they should have an explosive offense.

Former NFL scout and analyst Mark Ross is bullish on Burrow and Chase this season.

"Chase will breakout to be the Offensive Rookie of the Year," Mark Ross said on NFL Network. "He was the most talented wide receiver that I scouted since Julio Jones and came out in 2011. A lot of other great wide receivers, but he was right there at the top as far as the best guy I scouted. You always talk about practice reps with quarterbacks and wide receivers being on the same page, well these guys don't even have to practice together because they did it at the highest level. We know Joe Burrow won just about every award when he was coming out of LSU that year so that synergy I think that these two have will put them on the field right away to breakout together."

Ross isn't the first NFL evaluator to compare Chase to Jones. That comparison was made before the draft.
