Texas A&M Football Stock Watch, Player No. 2: WR Caleb Chapman
Nobody in the world has been higher on Caleb Chapman than I have. The Aggie wide receiver has just a single catch since Week 2, so why am I so high on him?
It’s simple — he is a game-changer, physically.
At 6’5″, he has the size of a tight end. He’s the same height as the Aggie tight end in Jalen Wydermyer that I spoke about in the previous slide. The difference here is that Chapman has speed, a lot of speed.
He adds an extra dimension to a relatively limited Texas A&M WR corps.
When defending Chapman, you have to give something up. You’ll never match his size and speed at the same time, so there will always be a mismatch in favor of Texas A&M. It has gone under the radar, but Chapman being unable to play since Week 2 had a bigger part in A&M’s offensive collapse than most believe.
In Texas A&M’s last contest, Chapman didn’t have too much of an impact as he returned from injury. He participated in warm-ups and played sparingly, recording a single catch for just seven yards.
After two full weeks of rest, expect Caleb Chapman to be fully returned to Texas A&M’s gameplan. Because of this, I’ll be predicting Texas A&M’s offense to be much more explosive, opening up the unit entirely.
