Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase is in a class of his own when it comes to rookie-season accomplishments despite earning plenty of comparisons in the process.

One such comparison would fairly suggest his game is reminiscent of former Dallas Cowboys great Dez Bryant.

And it just so happens Chase modeled his game after Bryant’s when he was younger, as he revealed on Colin Cowherd’s “The Herd” recently:

“Yeah so the main person I was watching growing up was Dez Bryant. You know he was always somebody I always watched when he was with Tony Romo. Back then, that’s when we had Marques Colston on the Saints. I was always watching Dez Bryant…I stayed with it, learned from it, that’s when I started to watch other receivers and just take their stuff.”

Bryant, a big-bodied, yards-after-catch machine, scored 15 touchdowns over his first two seasons (27 games) and scored 75 times over 119 appearances. From 2012-2014, he had three straight years of at least 1,200 receiving yards with 41 touchdowns.

Chase, over his first 16 games, has a record-breaking 1,429 receiving yards with 13 scores while averaging 18.1 yards per catch. No word on if he’ll play in the season finale against the Browns before suiting up in the playoffs, but regardless of when fans see him again, they’ll see more shades of Dez in Bengals stripes.
