The Chiefs' rookie minicamp officially began on Saturday and we got our first look at several draft picks, including first-round selection Xavier Worthy.

After trading up with the Bills to land Worthy, Kansas City is heavily invested in the former Texas star. We've already seen him in a Chiefs helmet, but a new video surfaced that shows him running routes and catching passes as well.

Kansas City's coaching staff has high expectations for Worthy and it's easy to see why.

You don't see much from the video but Worthy's precise route-running and excellent speed are easy to decipher. He's not merely a fast guy, though his record-setting 4.21 40-yard dash is impressive. Instead, Worthy is a complete receiver who happens to be extremely fast.

Worthy broke onto the scene at Texas during his freshman year, catching 62 passes for 981 yards and 12 TDs. He had 1,014 receiving yards last season and should quickly become one of Patrick Mahomes' favorite targets.

The slender wideout admittedly needs to put on more weight, though I'm confident he'll reach his target weight by the time the season starts.

With Rashee Rice's status up in the air pending a potential suspension, Worthy may need to make a quick impact on the offense. He wasted no time at finding success as a Longhorn and hopefully, Chiefs fanas won't have to wait long for the first-round pick to develop.

I'm thrilled to see what Worthy can do as a Chief, and I believe we'll soon get back to the high-flying offenses from Mahomes' first couple of seasons.
