Tyreek Hill is quickly becoming a huge name at Kansas City Chiefs training camp.
When Hill was taken in the fifth round of the NFL Draft this spring, many reacted with “who?” After they read about Hill’s history, legions were irate. Others didn’t care.
Regardless of your stance on the young man, there is no denying his performance since being drafted. Hill has been electrifying throughout the early stages of training camp, torching Marcus Peters on Tuesday for a long touchdown. Later in the day, Hill caught an underneath route and took it to the house.
At this juncture, it is fair to wonder just how much head coach Andy Reid will utilize Hill. Consider the following tweets;
Look, it is stille arly. The hype train is coming off the tracks and we haven’t even had the team in pads for a full week. Still, talent and speed is talent and speed. It isn’t suddenly going away.
With Chris Conley and Albert Wilson yet to emerge as the clear starter opposite of Jeremy Maclin, can Hill take the job? It would be a tremendous upset, but if he is this dynamic, doesn’t Reid have to at least consider it?
This is going to be a story we continue to follow.
