The Pittsburgh Steelers' second-round selection in the 2020 NFL Draft has already seemingly started paying dividends five weeks into this season.

That's because former Notre Dame standout wide receiver and No. 49 overall pick in this year's NFL Draft, Chase Claypool, scored 4 touchdowns in Sunday's Keystone State showdown

In fact, Claypool accomplished something only one other NFL player has since 2006 by accounting for four total TDs in one game, with former Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin (2012) being the last to do so since New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush and Indianapolis Colts RB Joseph Addai both did it in 2006.

Steelers fans and fantasy football managers alike have to be excited to see what else 2020 has in store for this budding star in Pittsburgh.
