Xavier Legette burst on the scene this season with over 1,200 yards and 7 touchdowns for the Gamecocks.

At 6-1, 221 lbs., Legette hit 23 mph on GPS tracking on the field this season. Legette is a classic height/weight speed prospect who should be able to live on the outside in the NFL. He is not a complete route runner but his raw athleticism and contested catch ability make him an intriguing prospect. He can have an immediate impact as a YAC weapon and with time grow into a complete receiving weapon.

With the addition of Hollywood Brown, the Chiefs can be more patient at receiver now. They don't need to have one come in and make an instant impact like Rashee Rice had to. It's important to acknowledge that the Chiefs do not need a slot-only option with their current roster.

With Rice, Brown, Kelce, and potentially Skyy Moore they can't draft a player who will not win on the outside. Legette has great traits and can develop in K.C. for a year before needing relied upon. Physically, he could be a DK Metcalf-like player for the offense
