2019 Fantasy Outlook
With Tyreek Hill likely getting himself suspended or banned from the league, the Chiefs used the 56th overall pick to nab a player with similar physical specs. At 5-11, 183, and running a blistering 4.33 40, Hardman's one of the fastest receivers in the rookie class and should immediately find himself as the team's new field stretcher, an especially valuable role given Patrick Mahomes' other-worldly arm. Hardman was a five-star athlete coming out of high school, starting his career at cornerback before switching to receiver. He might be a little raw, but he didn't turn 21 until March and has plenty of room to grow as a player. Sammy Watkins should be the team's top wideout, and Travis Kelce among the league's most targeted tight ends, but beyond those two ­­- and Watkins has an extensive injury history - there isn't any established depth.

New deep threat in KC
WRKansas City Chiefs
April 26, 2019
The Chiefs selected Hardman in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 56th overall.
ANALYSIS
Kansas City needed to address receiver with the uncertainty surrounding Tyreek Hill, but Hardman going above players like D.K. Metcalf and Hakeem Butler is still a bit of a surprise. That said, Hardman is a different player than those two. He was a five-star athlete coming out of high school who began his University of Georgia career at cornerback before switching to receiver as a sophomore in 2017. Hardman has game-breaking speed (4.33 40-yard dash) as a vertical receiver and immediately fills a need as a downfield threat for Patrick Mahomes. He can also contribute in the return game. In all, Hardman is a toolsy player who is just scratching the surface of his potential at receiver. At 21 years old, Hardman can develop into a major weapon in the Kansas City passing game.
