Metcalf ran an official 10.36 in the event, which left him in last place but is also incredibly impressive for a 230-pound man who is not a full-time track and field athlete. Both Mahomes and Hill gave props to the freakish wide receiver, with Mahomes calling Metcalf’s time “crazy” and Hill opting for “scary.”
But Mahomes took it a step further, asking his top wideout if he will be next to try his hand (feet) at running the 100-meter dash against track competitors.
“You next?” Mahomes tweeted at Hill, who has been regarded as one of the fastest, if not the fastest players in the NFL since he entered the league five years ago.
You next? @cheetah

It should be noted that Hill was a world-class level sprinter in high school who expressed hopes of qualifying for the Olympics last year. His reported personal-best time in the 100-meters is 10.19 seconds.
We’re not sure if he will, but we’d love to see Hill get out there and give it a go on the track. At the very least, it would be incredibly entertaining.
