The deep passes receive all the attention, and make no mistake, a Patrick Mahomes throw and Mecole Hardman tip-drill catch down the sideline will be the highlight from the second day of the Chiefs’ mandatory three-day minicamp.
But it’s not the accurate depiction of Wednesday’s practice in its entirety.
No, the Chiefs instead focused much of their 11-on-11 work on getting their running backs involved in the passing game. On the first snap, Mahomes turned and threw a quick ball to Clyde Edwards-Helaire. By the time the initial segment had been completed, four different backs had receptions in the pass-only work in front of about 300 fans at the team’s practice facility.
