The Kansas City Chiefs were already loaded on offense heading into the 2019 NFL Draft. Adding second round pick Mecole Hardman appears to have made them even more dangerous.
Hardman, who played at Georgia, has blazing speed and wasted zero time showing it to NFL fans. On his first touch as a Chief, he scored on a 17-yard pop pass from Kyle Shurmur.
In fact, Hardman wasn’t even touched during the run.
The score gave the Chiefs a 14-7 lead over the Cincinnati Bengals. Both teams are playing their first preseason game.

Hardman played three years at Georgia before being drafted No. 56 overall. In his final season in Athens, he caught 35 balls for 543 yards and seven touchdowns.
Kansas City, a season ago, reached the AFC Championship Game before falling to the New England Patriots.
The Chiefs will open the regular season against the Jacksonville Jaguars on September 8.
