The Kansas City Chiefs have a history of adding some of the top performers at the NFL Scouting Combine to join their team. As recently as 2019 they drafted a player who was a top performer in several categories. They’ve had their eyes on top combine performers spanning several different front offices now and it doesn’t look to stop with Brett Veach.
As we approach the 2020 iteration of the event, it’s important to note that a good combine showing may change the perception of players for a team. This goes beyond just testing well in the drills, but team interviews and medicals are also important.
Here’s a look at some of the players currently on the Chiefs roster who were among the top performers when they participated in the combine.
WR Mecole Hardman (2019)
40-yard dash: 4.33s
While Tyreek Hill may be the fastest player on the Kansas City Chiefs, he didn’t have a chance to showcase his speed at the combine. Hardman’s 40-yard dash time was the fifth-best of any player at the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine regardless of the position group. He showcased his jet-like speed during the 2019 season, zooming all the way to Chiefs’ rookie of the year honors, winning the Mack Lee Hill award.
