Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Chase Claypool had an up-and-down 2021 season, but he certainly believes in his abilities going into next year.

"I know for a fact I am not like the rest of the guys in the NFL," Claypool said on the I Am Athlete podcast (h/t Myles Simmons of Pro Football Talk). "I know I'm a top-five receiver. I know I’m a top-three receiver."

"When I’m working, I'm like, 'I'm a dog.' I’m gonna dog people lined up across from me, too," Claypool said (32:00 in video). "And I've just got to bring that confidence and I've got to bring that spirit and I’ve just got to show people. And it's going to happen. And we're going to rewind this and we're going to see this clip in a little bit and they're going to be like, 'Damn, he was right.'"
