Chiefs Rookie Mini-Camp: Devon Wylie Can Tell Difference At NFL Level After First Day

The first skill position player chosen in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs did not come until the fourth round, after the Chiefs had already invested three high picks on the offensive and defensive lines. In the fourth, however, they took wide receiver Devon Wylie out of Fresno State. With his ability to help on special teams and his dynamic speed, Wylie is expected to help the Chiefs in a number of ways.

But apparently, Wylie is going to have to learn how to utilize that speed at the next level. The biggest adjustment to the NFL, as the saying goes, is the speed of the game.

"It's very different," Wylie said. "I'm going to have to increase my speed in my own way, and I'm going to have to harness it, keep my feet under me a little better. Today, I felt like I could have played a little better. I have to play as fast as I can all the time in order to keep my speed and use that as an edge."

Crennel praised his newest receiver and said he could see why the Chiefs choose him.

"He showed some pretty good quickness and things as far as catching the ball goes," Crennel said. "What he was advertised as, it showed. I mean, he has really good quickness and he runs really good routes. I think he'll be able to get a step on defenders and have a chance to make plays."
