Chiefs training camp: Rookie making case for RB carry

We’re nine stops into my training camp tour after sending off the Bills, Packers, Bears, Colts, Bengals, Steelers, Browns and Vikings. The main ones are next:

ST. Joseph, Md. — Every time I come here, there seems to be at least a threat of storms, and this year was no different. Thunderstorms, but no rain through my run this morning. And then the skies opened up, and practice moved to Missouri Western’s fieldhouse. Here’s what I saw and heard…

1) Isaiah Pacheco, a seventh-round pick out of Rutgers, looks like a real player – 216 pounds, 4.3 speed and traits that remind the staff here of former chief Kareem Hunt (only he may have extra gears that Hunt didn’t). A product of what the personnel department saw as a 3-day surplus in this year’s draft class, a result of the 2020 COVID season taking work away from guys entering the ’21 class. And Pacheco is more than just a feature guy — he’s also shown real vision. It will be interesting to see how he fits into a crowded backfield with Clyde Edwards-Heller, Ronald Jones and Jerick McKinnon.
