LSU football wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase isn’t satisfied despite an incredible 2019 season.

It would be easy for LSU football wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase to be satisfied after his tremendous 2019 season.

Chase, who caught 84 passes for 1,780 yards as a sophomore last season, will almost certainly be the first wide receiver selected in the 2020 NFL Draft, regardless of the numbers he puts up this season.

Any drop in production by Chase will likely be attributed to the loss of quarterback Joe Burrow.

In other words, Chase can cruise in 2020.

But that’s not his style.

And it’s not what he’s going to do.

LSU football’s best wide receiver is a man on a mission

Geaux247 reported this week that Chase is in the “best shape of his life” and isn’t taking last year’s success for granted.

It’s pretty obvious that Chase is beyond great — he’s special.

And Chase’s mindset is what makes him so special.  He’s never satisfied. He wants to be even better in 2020 and beyond.

If Chase improves from last season, then it’s going to make Myles Brennan’s job as LSU’s new quarterback a lot easier. Brennan already has some great offensive weapons at his disposal with Chase, Terrace Marshall Jr, and Racey McMath, along with several true freshmen (like five-star super athlete Arik Gilbert).  An even better Chase in that scenario is a scary thought for the rest of the SEC West (and the rest of the nation) .

Chase has NFL Hall of Fame potential. And we saw that last season in Baton Rouge. Fortunately for LSU fans, we’ll see it once again in 2020.

247Sports could regret bold LSU prediction. dark. Next

LSU’s best wide receiver might somehow be even better in 2020.

Maybe that Tigers offense won’t have the dropoff all the analysts are expecting it to have.
