Colin Cowherd didn’t mince words or use a circumlocution to make his feelings known: The talk-show host believes that Patrick Mahomes is the most dynamic player in the NFL.
Personally, I would love to see this trade happen. It would immediately shore up a position that the Chiefs have been trying to fill since they traded Marcus Peters to the Los Angeles Rams last offseason. That’s just the googly-eyed fan in me though.
Ramsey is 24 years old and is already widely considered the best player at his position in all of the NFL. However, he has been known to run his mouthand when things weren’t exactly going great for the Jaguars.
Round 3: Emanuel Hall, Missouri
Hall has proved to be one of the best athletes in this receiver class. He ran a sub-4.4 40-yard dash, jumped a 43.5 inch vertical and posted 15 bench-press repetitions at the combine. He did all of this while dealing with a lingering groin injury too. If that’s not competitive toughness, I’m not sure what is.
One thing I love about Hall is that he wins with his releases and can defeat press man coverage regularly. If you don’t get hands on him at the line of scrimmage to disrupt his route, he’ll run right past you. That’s a valuable asset to have at the next level. His lack of versatility will likely hurt him, and he seems reliant on his ability as a deep threat. The Chiefs like receivers who can do a bit of everything.
Hall was in Kansas City for their local pro day, and they had planned to work him out privately prior to the pro day. There is certainly some interest.
2. Demarcus Robinson
Patrick Mahomes needs targets to throw to, but paying an underwhelming receiver like Demarcus Robinson $2 million is silly. It’s not even that much, but for Robinson to get paid the same as Tyreek Hill is clear overpaying considering the production gap between the two.
