PROS: Bigger bodied wide out who knows how to win with his size. Concentration catches are a plus for Claypool, as he is a natural when fighting defenders for dominance in the air. He's a reliable target whose talent is better than his early numbers in 2018 showed for. Does not have a ton of production overall, but the tape suggests that's due to how the offense was built pre-2019 than it is a hint at Claypool's limitation. Bigger wide receivers have a tendency to mainly succeed with vertical-based routes (go routes, posts and comebacks). Claypool seems to have a more diverse route tree than normal, winning on crossers, quick slants and even screens. Natural hands catcher who consistently uses those extended long arms to haul passes in.
CONS: Claypool's speed will be somewhat of a question going into the draft process. Though he is smooth for a big man, his physical size still limits just how explosive he can be in and out of his routes, and questions about how well he can separate at the next level will come up.
