The Chiefs' rookie minicamp is officially in the books and several players stood out throughout the three-day practice period. No rookie has higher expectations in his first season than first-round WR Xavier Worthy though, and it sounds like the hype train isn't slowing down soon.

While he started slowly during the weekend, reports indicate he saved his best performance for last, catching a pair of TDs in the seven-on-seven period on Monday.

By all accounts, it seems like Worthy will make an impact on the Chiefs sooner than later.

Xavier Worthy Turns Heads With Strong Rookie Minicamp Performance

Worthy's speed is obvious, but he's an underrated route-runner and got to show off his complete skillset with QB Chris Oladokun slinging him passes.

He needs to put on some weight and has said his target playing weight is 175 LBs. If he can bulk up a bit while maintaining his speed and strong hands, Kansas City will have an extremely exciting young wide receiver to help build the offense around.

Rashee Rice's potential suspension notwithstanding, the Chiefs suddenly have a pass-catching group that can be dangerous. Rice, Worthy, Hollywood Brown, Travis Kelce, and fourth-round pick Jared Wiley represent a massive upgrade over last year's unit that led the NFL in dropped passes (44).

The league screwed up letting the Chiefs get last year's Super Bowl. On paper, this year's team should be better. With another year of experience, all of the young cornerstones like George Karlaftis, Trent McDuffie, and Creed Humphrey should be improved.

If Worthy can deliver on his immense potential, Kansas City may soon be hoisting the Lombardi Trophy for a third consecutive year.
