Chiefs’ Tyreek Hill selected to 3 positions on PFWA’s all-rookie team

New, comments

I saw the press release said the Kansas City Chiefs had four all-rookie selections to the Pro Football Writers of America team. Four?!

Actually, two players but four spots. Chris Jones was named to the all-rookie defense and Tyreek Hill was named the punt returner, kick returner and special teams player. Former K-Stater Tyler Lockett had three spots last year with the Seahawks.

Here is the whole team:
