One cut. That's all it took to see what the fuss was all about.
During a team period Sunday afternoon at Kansas City Chiefs rookie minicamp, former LSU running back Darrel Williams, who had signed as a college free agent a few days' prior, took a handoff off the left side of the offensive line, and then about eight yards down the field, Williams planted his left foot and cut back to the right, accelerating through a running lane and into the open field.
It was athleticism. It was vision. It was impressive.

Before the draft, Pringle had a private workout for the Chiefs following his Pro Day and came away with a positive feeling, so when they called after the draft, he felt comfortable.
"When the Chiefs called me, I knew they believed in me," he said.

While the players aren't in pads and there's no contact allowed at these minicamps, there's still something to be said for the defensive backs and offensive skill position guys going at it during the 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and team periods.
It was during these periods that Smith stood out with his combination of length and quickness, but also for his feel for the game.
