Everyone knows what Charles is capable of in the open field with his breakaway speed. Dexter McCluster has even shown off his speed when taking back some punts.
But the fastest Chiefs player in training camp might not be a household name. It's doubtful Chiefs fans have even heard of Rico Richardson, who did not get an invite to the NFL Combine this year.
Chiefs insider Reid Ferrin said he sees Richardson as the fastest player in camp right now. Who is Rico Richardson, you ask? A small school stud who has a chance to survive the cut if he lives up to his potential.
Richardson was named the 2012 Southwestern Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Year while prepping at Jackson State.
Before the veterans arrived in training camp, Richardson stood out the most among the rookies who practiced last week.
Richardson will likely catch some passes from Chase Daniel in preseason games, and possibly more from either Ricky Stanzi or Tyler Bray. Behind the starting wide receivers, Richardson might be the most active wide receiver in preseason games this year.
We'll see if he can do enough to use his speed to the team's advantage and land a spot on the 53-man roster.
