Travis Kelce compares Patrick Mahomes to Tyreek Hill, says you can’t explain it

KC Chiefs TE Travis Kelce compared Patrick Mahomes to Tyreek Hill and it ... made sense? It was actually a great comparison that made a lot of sense.

Kelce joined the Golic and Wingo show on ESPN Radio and dropped this about Mahomes.

“I feel like the expectation and the anticipation is just as high as when Tyreek Hill came in. He was a little bit more under the radar because of what happened in college but you couldn’t describe it. The guy’s fast. The guy’s extremely fast. That still doesn’t explain the difference in how he plays the game.

“Patrick has that exact same, you can’t really describe, you can’t tell everybody how he throws it off his back foot, you can’t tell everybody how he’s running right and throws it all the way to the sideline on the left. You just can’t explain those types of things he does in practice until he does it in the game and everyone is like ohh, now I get it.”

I love that explanation because we all know what he’s talking about with Tyreek Hill. Even on a field with the best athletes in the world, Tyreek’s speed is on another level and catches your eye.

Mahomes had a few unreal throws in his lone start last season. I can’t wait to see what Kelce is talking about.
