KANSAS CITY, Mo – Kansas City bosses could not find a wide receiver much more like Turek Hill than the one they chose with their first choice in the draft this year's draft.
The bosses picked Georgian Mechelle Hardman in the second round with a 56th victory on Friday. They traded in a circle to choose from, sending players 61 and 167 to Los Angeles.
Hardman is a burner in the Hill mold. He ran a 4.33-second dash of 40 yards at the scout NFL mill.
"We love his eyes, obviously, his speed, but he's more than that," said coaching chief Andy Reid. "He can play inside, he can play outside, and both in Georgia, and then he's a phenomenal returnee, probably the best returnee in the draft."
Hardman may also be a replacement for Hill. The bosses banned Hill from activities in the off-season on Thursday after the sound appeared at Hill and his fiancé, discussing how their 3-year-old son broke his arm.

District Attorney Johnson County (Kansas) reopened a criminal case to investigate the possible involvement of Hill in the way the injury occurred.
But Reid pointed out that the chiefs would prepare Hardman, regardless of Hill's situation.
"This is someone [GM Brett Veach] it followed the delays, "Reed said." It has nothing to do with things that are happening right now. "
The bosses also have Sammy Watkins and Demarkus Robinson as the main recipients.
