The 2020 NFL Draft delivered one of the deepest, and arguably the best wide receiver class we've ever seen. Former Notre Dame wide receiver Chase Claypool was one of those receivers, selected in the second round by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

With so much talent to be had, receivers like Claypool taken in the late first and second round are still very much expected to make an impact this season, and Steelers wide receivers coach Ike Hilliard agrees.

For a team getting their future Hall of Fame quarterback in Ben Roethlisberger back this season, and an already young receiving corps on the rise, it could turn out to be the perfect set-up for a rookie like Claypool.

As long as we keep hearing positive signs like this through training camp, he could be a great late-round target in your fantasy draft.
