Shortly after the Kansas City Chiefs drafted Tyreek Hill, special teams coach Dave Toub came out and said he was Devin Hester-ish. Toub later slowed that down and said it’s not fair to compare the two. So guess what he did today?
Dave Toub on Tyreek Hill: "Speed wise he's the fastest player I've ever coached and I coached Devin Hester." #Chiefs #ChiefsKingdom— Andrew Carter (@Andrew__Carter) August 8, 2016
The hype is real. Very real. But will it translate to actual games? That’s the part I’m not sure about. I’ve seen too many players star in training camp only to see them fizzle out in a real game.
Chiefs OC Matt Nagy recently told me that he does believe Tyreek’s game can translate to the regular season so it’s clear that the coaching staff is impressed by this guy. I can’t wait to see him in a game. Pleeeeease, let him take the opening kickoff.
