Steelers WR Chase Claypool Calls Himself a Top 3 WR in the NFL

Confidence is a good thing.  Being delusional isn't.  Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool is leaning very hard towards being delusional.  During an appearance on the "I Am Athlete" show he said he was a Top 3 wide receiver in the NFL.

"I know for a fact I am not like the rest of the guys in the NFL.  I know I'm a Top 5 wide receiver.  I know I'm a Top 3 wide receiver."

This is coming from a guy who caught 59 passes for 860 yards and two touchdowns.  Claypool is far from a Top 5 or Top 3 wide receivers in the league.  He's not even the best receiver on his own team yet.  Twitter made sure to point that out.

Again, confidence it a good thing, but this has crossed over into delusion.  Good luck being a Top 3 wide receiver with Mitchell Trubisky.  Not taking anything away from Mitch, but I doubt he's the guy to help a guy reach Top 3 status.
