    Kansas City Chiefs second-round WR Mecole Hardman got off to a rough start in rookie minicamp Saturday, May 4 - showing rawness in his routes, mishandling a couple of punts during individual return drills and dropping a couple catches off easy throws - but he was fielding punts cleanly and making difficult, leaping catches just over the goal line during red-zone drills by Monday, May 6, according to Brooke Pryor of the Kansas City Star. 'Every day he got a little better. ... These routes are new to him. He did a nice job in the red zone, which normally is the toughest place to work, but he did extremely well there. He had a good finish,' head coach Andy Reid said.

    Huddle Up: The Chiefs sent a message by trading up for Hardman on Day 2 of the draft, suggesting they view him as the potential replacement for Tyreek Hill in the likely event the latter receives a long suspension, gets released or both. The Georgia product may not be a stud right away for fantasy purposes given how much refinement he needs as a receiver and how much Kansas City wants to use him in the return game, but he could not have asked for a better situation. He should be considered a high-upside WR3 for now.

    Kansas City Chiefs second-round draft choice WR Mecole Hardman signed a four-year contract with the Chiefs Saturday, May 4. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Hardman could have a solid role in the passing game this upcoming season depending on what happens to Tyreek Hill. Fantasy players should keep an eye on Hardman during the preseason because he could be a late-round option in some fantasy leagues.

    Kansas City Chiefs second-round WR Mecole Hardman was the focus of a potential trade up by the New York Jets on the second day of the 2019 NFL Draft before the Chiefs gave up a fifth-round pick to move up five spots to select him.

    Huddle Up: Hardman would have been fortunate to serve as anything more than a deep-ball specialist with the Jets, fighting for snaps behind Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa and Jamison Crowder. As it turned out, he could not have landed in a much better spot, assuming Tyreek Hill's time draws to a close sooner than later. Hardman will likely come off the board in the middle-to-late part of the first round in rookie drafts and figures to be a sleeper pick for many in redrafts this summer.

    Georgia WR Mecole Hardman was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs with the 56th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

    Huddle Up: Hardman should have a role in the passing game this upcoming season depending on what happens with Tyreek Hill. He could be a late-round option in some leagues but is not a lock to be drafted in fantasy leagues.
