Along with the signing of third-round DE Joseph Ossai, this wraps up the Bengals draft class.
Chase, 21, was a two-year starter at LSU and a unanimous All-American during his sophomore season. He opted out of the 2020 season. The Bengals took Chase with the No. 5 overall pick.
Chase is projected to sign a four-year, $30,819,642 contract with the Bengals that includes a $19,774,285 signing bonus.
The Bengals will have a fifth-year option to pick up on him in 2024.
Lance Zierlein compares Chase to former Rams WR Torry Holt.
During his college career at LSU, Chase caught 107 passes for 2,093 yards receiving and 23 touchdowns over the course of two seasons and 24 games.
