3 Wideouts Chiefs Can Draft in Case Tyreek Hill Faces Punishment

As the investigation into Tyreek Hill's alleged battery and child abuse continues, we'll all be patiently waiting to see if he will be handed any kind of punishment from the NFL. If the ongoing investigation reveals that Hill is guilty, he could be facing a steep retribution from Roger Goodell. 


Hill's track record is far from spotless, and this isn't even the first time he's been accused of abuse. Despite that, the Kansas City Chiefs gave him a second chance by drafting him in 2016.


If Hill is found guilty, he'll likely face a similar fate to that of Kareem Hunt, who was cut by the team following his own domestic violence incident. If Tyreek Hill isn't with Kansas City next year, here are three wideouts the team could draft to replace him. 

3. A.J. Brown, Ole Miss

A.J. Brown may not be as high on draft boards as his Ole Miss teammate, D.K Metcalf, but Brown is still a solid prospect and someone who the Chiefs should keep an eye on. One of the major concerns surrounding Brown entering this year's draft was his lack of speed, but he was able to quiet the critics with a solid 40-yard-dash time at the combine, posting a 4.49. 


He has good size for the NFL and he was very productive throughout his collegiate career. In his final season at Ole Miss, Brown totaled 85 receptions for 1,320 yards and 6 touchdowns. His route running and ability to generate yards after a catch would be a great fit in Andy Reid's west coast offense. 

2. Deebo Samuel, South Carolina

Deebo Samuel's draft stock has been on the rise ever since his stellar performances at the Senior Bowl and the NFL Combine. He's a versatile receiver who can play in both the slot and on the outside, something that Tyreek Hill has made a living doing for the Chiefs. 


Although Samuel isn't nearly as fast as Hill, his build is similar and he still possess elite quickness. During the Senior Bowl, Samuel displayed great route running ability and a knack for creating separation. He can also return kicks or punts if need be, something the Chiefs will need if Hill is no longer with the team.

1. Andy Isabella, Massachusetts

If the Chiefs want to spend their first few picks on other needs and wait until later in the draft to pick up a wideout, Andy Isabella could be their guy. Due to his 5-foot-8, 188-pound frame, he'll likely have to wait until day two or three of the draft to hear his name called. 


But regardless of his small stature, he still has elite speed and quickness, posting a 4.31 40-yard-dash and 6.95 three-cone-drill time at the Combine. Isabella totaled 231 receptions for 3,526 yards and 30 touchdowns during his four-year career at UMass. 


Andy Reid has proven throughout his coaching career that he prefers speed and quickness over size in his wideouts. He took a flyer on Hill, and when he was in Philly he took the undersized DeSean Jackson in the second round. Isabella fits that profile, so Reid and Co. will likely have him on their radar.
