When we kicked off the season, the Chiefs' WR2 position promised to be a long, drawn-out dogfight between Mecole Hardman, Demarcus Robinson, and Byron Pringle. Hardman, picked 52nd, ahead of DK Metcalf, in the 2019 NFL Draft, was handed the job early. However, even though Hardman outgained him by 125 yds, one could argue that it was Pringle who made the most of his opportunity, hauling in 42 recs for 568 yds and 5 TDs, which equals the combined TDs of both Hardman and (snooze) Robinson. Robinson couldn't even catch attention this season.

Pringle and Robinson will both be free agents come March. Although WR is not as deep as last year's draft, Veach/Reid will have plenty of options to fill the WR2 spot.


Mizzou fans should know the name Treylon Burks. The Arkansas receiver scorched the Tiger defense for 220 yards in their December 2020 matchup. Burks is a big physical receiver with great body control and a big catch radius.

CHIEFS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
