Quarterback Patrick Mahomes applauded when the Chiefs recently drafted a fast wide receiver, Mecole Hardman, with their top pick. But Mahomes said he had to remind Hardman at practice this week not to give up on routes far down the field because Mahomes has the arm to get him the ball. “There are sometimes that he runs and he gets like 45, 50 yards down the field and he kind of slows down,'' Mahomes said. “I told him, ‘Keep running. Just keep running.' That's something we've all kind of gotten accustomed to is we always want to stay alive, keep running. There are no clear routes. We want to make sure that everyone knows they have a chance to catch the ball.''
