Tyreek Hill is as surprised as the rest of us at Patrick Mahomes’ ascent to glory.

When the Chiefs selected Mahomes with the No. 10 overall pick out of Texas Tech, he was merely an inconsistent quarterback prospect who had yet to prove he could put it all together. The Chiefs traded up to get him, and it turns out Kansas City’s front office knew something we didn’t.

Despite still having Alex Smith on the roster, KC selected their quarterback of the future. Little did we know –or Hill, for that matter — that he’d become the most talented signal-caller in NFL history.

Hill’s first impression of Mahomes was as skeptical as most Chiefs fans. Smith was a proven commodity. Why give that all up for a player with sky-high potential?

Pairing Mahomes and Hill worked out great for the Chiefs

Sunday might’ve very well been the apex of Mahomes and Hill’s relationship. In total, Hill had 13 catches for 269 yards and three touchdowns. Those absurd stats put him atop (at the time) the NFL leaderboard for receiving yards. Second place? Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce at 978 yards.

Hill was surpassed by DK Metcalf on Monday Night Football, but the fact remains — Mahomes spreads the ball around, flawlessly keeping all his targets happy and padding his own stats to boot. Mahomes is well on his way to a second MVP award, and perhaps another Super Bowl.

But anyone claiming to have known he’d be this good from the start is lying.
