QB Pat Mahomes

RB Kareem Hunt

WR Tyreek Hill

The Chiefs had 1,000-yard weapons all over the field in 2017: Hunt led the NFL in rushing yards (1,327) as a rookie. Hill was No. 7 in receiving yards (1,183) as a second-year pro. And Travis Kelce was No. 2 among tight ends with 1,038 receiving yards and eight touchdown catches.

The problem is the Chiefs traded quarterback Alex Smith off one of the best years of his career in order to roll with second-year pro Mahomes, who made one meaningless start as a rookie.

Mahomes has a cannon arm, but he is the most unproven quarterback on this list. The Chiefs only make it because of Hill and Hunt and their continued upside.

“I had a take-off route, pretty much a go route,” the 5-foot-9, 200-pound Wilson said. “I got a little held up at the beginning, but the quarterback gave me a shot. I pretty much took advantage of the opportunity, was able to work inside, made a move on the safety and that was pretty much all she wrote.”

Patrick Mahomes talks Sammy Watkins, his development and his process on day three of OTAs

“The first day was crazy,” Mahomes said of Watkins, specifically. “I think you all might have seen on Twitter or something like that, but the first pass of all OTAs he was running a go route and he just caught it with one hand (it’s this play, probably), and then later on in the practice, I thought I overthrew him and I thought I threw an interception, and you just saw a hand go out of nowhere, and he brought it down.”

Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston: “I want to attack the weakest link”

“I want to be able to attack the weakest link,” Houston said when I asked him about playing on the other side. “Every team is different. Everybody’s left tackle isn’t All-Pro and everybody’s right tackle isn’t All-Pro. Wherever the weakest link, whether it is the guard, center or even tackles, I want to be on the weakest link.”

“That’s a tough position,” Reid added. “He’s got a lot of responsibility as a transmitter between the right and the left side and making sure the protections are right and so on, so he’s done a good job with that.”
