Texas A&M Football Player No. 2: WR Caleb Chapman
Caleb Chapman won’t receive any of the glory from the Aggies’ Week 1 win, but he held an underrated role in Texas A&M’s offensive production.
Despite the fact that Haynes King was missing some of his deep passes, Chapman was breaking free more often than not in the secondary. He was doing what we’ve seen him do in small sample sizes earlier in his career and creating separation between himself and opposing defensive backs.
On the stat sheet, this only translated to four catches for 91 yards, but the injury-prone wideout could have easily approached the 200-yard-mark if his quarterback had been on target. And his quarterback will be on target, eventually.
At the very least, we can expect Chapman to do exactly what he did in the Aggies’ first contest — stretch opposing defenses, which will build more room for other receivers to roam free in the middle of the field. Between his height, speed, and athleticism, there may not be a defensive player in the country who can guard him. He’s like a hyper-speed tight end.
