The Kansas City Chiefs will be counting on third-year wideout Mecole Hardman to take a step forward in his development in 2021 as the team looks to replace Sammy Watkins’ production. To do that, the 23-year-old will rely on his 4.33-second speed and improved route running, which he showed off in a recent workout video on Twitter.
However, another NFL speedster, Henry Ruggs of the Las Vegas Raiders, took exception to the social media love Hardman was receiving after the video was picked up by B/R Gridiron on Tuesday, May 17. Hardman’s AFC West foe, seemingly unprompted, responded by writing, “Word on the street is @MecoleHardman4 thinks he can top my 40? You realize 4.27 > 4.33 right? #ad.”
