Cincinnati is mulling whether to select JaMarr Chase with the 5th pick of the draft. That would give them a combination that worked together at the college level. Both Chase and Joe Burrow played at Louisiana State. With that in mind, what current NFL receiver has twice gone over 1,000 receiving yards while catching passes from a quarterback who came from his same school?


DeAndre Hopkins. Hopkins went over 1,000 yards in both 2018 and 2019 with the Texans (with Deshaun Watson starting at quarterback). Both Hopkins and Watson played at Clemson. Hopkins also went over 1,000 yards in 2017, but Watson missed most of that season. Some other such combos in the Super Bowl era. Steve Beuerlein and Rocket Ismail (Notre Dame) with Carolina in 1998. Todd Christensen and Marc Wilson (Brigham Young) with the Raiders in 1984. John Elway and Ed McCaffrey (Stanford) with Denver in 1998. Gene Washington and John Brodie (Stanford again) with San Francisco in 1970. And Derrick Alexander and Elvis Grbac (Michigan) with Kansas City in 2000. On this one, I credited quarterbacks only if they were the main quarterback for their team in said season (led the team in pass attempts).
