Kadarius Toney, Chiefs

‘The Sky Is The Limit’ For Kadarius Toney – Veach

Kansas is once again replacing its top receiver, and this time they’re putting their faith in 2021 first-rounder Kadarius Toney.

Kadarius Toney was drafted by the Giants for whom he played 12 games before a midseason move to the Chiefs.

Last season he caught 14-of-17 targets for 171 yards and two touchdowns in seven games. Kadarius Toney also enjoyed a fruitful postseason, including a Super Bowl touchdown, which gives him a good platform to establish himself.

General manager Brett Veach thinks he will, and is excited to unlock Toney’s potential.

“He’s predominately been a guy that is a slot receiver, returner, runner — a gadget guy, if you will — but I don’t know if there is a limit on his game because he has a vertical game,” said Veach

“I don’t know if [his collegiate team at Florida was] one that vertically pushed the ball down the field, and his time early on in New York, I don’t know if they were a team that really vertically pushed the ball down the field.

“It’s a fair question to [ask]: ‘Has he ever played with a quarterback that likes to push the ball down the field?’ We have a lot of high hopes for him,” Veach said. “He was a first-round pick for a reason. There’s a reason why we traded for him and we felt like he was first-round talent.”

“We got him in here in the middle of the season and so there’s only so much you can do with him,” Veach said. “He’s extremely smart so it’s not going to be anything [with] grasping ideas or concepts. We were surprised with how quickly he picked it up.

“I think the sky is the limit for him.”
