It's good to be confident, especially when you're a professional athlete. 

But Chase Claypool appears to be confident in an extreme case. 

The Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver believes he's a top-three wide receiver in the National Football League.

“I’m going to say, my second year, I was a better player than I was my first year,” Claypool said on the "I Am Athlete" podcast. “The plays just didn’t work out, right? Some of the plays just didn’t go my way. I didn’t make some plays I need to make. But as a football player, understanding the game, knowing what to do, knowing where to be, I was better. So I’m going to be better this year.

“And just like you said, understanding I’m not normal — I feel that way when I’m on the field. I know for a fact I am not like the rest of the guys in the NFL. I know I’m a top-five receiver. I know I’m a top-three receiver.”

Everyone's now joking that Claypool must have been talking about something else...

Maybe Claypool will prove everyone wrong this upcoming season...
