Day 12 of Kansas City Chiefs Training Camp belonged to the young tight ends, Demetrius Harris and Ross Travis. The two former basketball players have both had strong camps. While Ross Travis has gotten most of the attention, Demetrius Harris has actually been the one to show a more complete game. His blocking has improved a lot and he should end up being the #2 tight end.
Albert Wilson and Chris Conley also had solid performances for the Chiefs. Wilson has looked very good after coming back from his calf strain, likely prompted somewhat by the strong performance of Rod Streater in his absence. Conley has show a lot of improvement in his route running this offseason, one of the areas most heavily questioned in his game as a draft prospect.
The receiving star of the day for the Kansas City Chiefs turned out to be a veteran as Rod Streater had a very impressive showing. That included the catch of the day in which he snagged a batted ball in the endzone. Streater also caught a very nice deep ball from Nick Foles that would have gone for six on Sundays.
Speaking of Nick Foles, he is starting to get the feel for the offense. Andy Reid told reporters on Wednesday that Foles had about half the playbook down. That’s starting to show up on the field as Foles shows a genuine comfort in throwing the deep patters. He still needs to refine his short game, but he can absolutely stretch the field.
