The Kansas City Chiefs are looking to repeat as Super Bowl champs, and Tyreek Hill seems ready to go.
Tyreek Hill is the fastest player in the game today, and just about any Chiefs fan will be at whit’s end if you suggest otherwise. The self-proclaimed ‘Cheetah’ has emerged as one of the top pass-catchers in the game, with the hands to match.
Still, his speed will always make pundits overlook his strong hands, and a workout video from Hill’s social accounts on Wednesday will only aid that argument.
Hill’s 4.3 speed is quick enough to run by any defender in the open field, and his route-running ability has dramatically improved over the course of his four-year NFL career. Pairing such attributes with the gunslinging mentality of Patrick Mahomes just seems unfair, and Hill’s offseason workout program gives us just a glimpse into how he refines his killer speed every summer.
Hill, who has made the Pro Bowl in all four of his professional seasons, has received a boost in productions thanks to the emergence of Travis Kelce and Mecole Hardman. Adding Sammy Watkins to that mix seems unnecessary, but Brett Veach decided to do so anyway. KC’s backfield of Damien Williams and rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire ain’t bad, either.
Hill’s presence as a deep threat opens up so many opportunities for other playmakers in the Chiefs offense. It’s that fear of ‘Cheetah’ scoring a touchdown on any given play from anywhere on the field that scares defensive coordinators straight, and adding to he legend in his offseason program is a smart psychological tactic, whether he intended it to be used as such or not.
