Good morning AG! Let’s get to the news…

WATCH: Chiefs rookies in action at minicamp Day 2 | usatoday

Kansas City Chiefs rookies hit the field for the second time on Sunday, following up the first day of minicamp with some veteran energy on Day 2.

Once again, media members were allowed to grab some shots of players as they went through some individual and team drills during practice. Below you’ll find some of the earliest looks at the Chiefs’ rookie class in action, albeit action in shorts and without pads:

7 takeaways from Day 2 of Chiefs rookie minicamp | usatoday

Ahead of practice, four rookie draft picks and one undrafted free agent — Darian Kinnard, Jaylen Watson, Skyy Moore, Isiah Pacheco and Justyn Ross — spoke to the media. They provided reporters with more insight into their time with Kansas City so far.

Below you’ll find seven takeaways from what they had to say:

Why did undrafted NFL rookie Justyn Ross pick Kansas City Chiefs? Here’s what he said | yahoo

I’ve seen players like me — kind of like Sammy — just come in here and excel in this offense,” Ross said. “So I feel pretty good about it.”

Chiefs Rookie Continues to Dominate: ‘Almost Too Good for This Camp’ | heavy.com

“Speaking of relentlessness, defensive end George Karlaftis continues to impress throughout the workouts,” tweeted Sweeney after day two of minicamp. “The No. 30 overall pick stands out, appearing almost too good for this camp. Looking forward to seeing him with the rest of the team during OTAs.”

He continued in a follow-up: “I caught defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo calling over both Karlaftis and later No. 21-overall pick, cornerback Trent McDuffie, for one-on-one instruction during the team blitz period. As it should, certainly feels like team is preparing these guys to be day-one starters.”

Brett Veach expects Mecole Hardman and his agent to wait on a new contract | yahoo

“It’s a good question,” Veach said. “I think one of the things that makes it more difficult is just where this receiver market went. On one hand, we can sit there and come up with something that makes sense for us and him. But on the other hand, when you come off of free agency period with these numbers were so high and there’s also the mindset or thought process of the cap will only get bigger now.

“I think it’ll probably tend to go in the direction where the agents and the players want to wait and if last year’s any indication of where this thing’s going to go, at some point it’ll kind of flatline out and things will become more balanced in regards to getting stuff done ahead of time. We’ll certainly have those type of conversations, but I think that if this offseason tipped its hand it’s more in the lines of the agent and the player just saying, ‘Well, might as well just wait.’ A lot of players benefitted from waiting and I think until that flatlines and settles down, I think there’ll be more of a desire for probably the agents more so to wait and play it out.”

Chiefs rookie WR Skyy Moore aims to be Patrick Mahomes’ next playmaker | usatoday

While Moore has been limited in rookie minicamp due to a hamstring injury, he has been digging into the playbook with high hopes for his rookie season. He’s also already started to build a connection with his new All-Pro quarterback, Patrick Mahomes.

It’s nice to hear that Karlaftis is basically dominating camp, but the cautious side of me is waiting to see how he fares against pros instead of fellow rookies.

Edit: Sounds like Glaser is one to keep an eye on moving forward as well. Always nice to find solid OL in the UDFA pool.

still waking up on the right side of the ground, so I can’t complain about that (all part of my evil plan to live forever)

left thigh is a bit swollen & sore (to be expected) but walking further (at this point a few days post-op) than 2 yrs ago … baby steps, to be sure, but still: getting out and getting it done as much as I can … all in all, making progress, slowly but surely

thanks for asking! 🙂
