Kansas City Chiefs rookie second-round pick Mecole Hardman is going to be an issue for opposing NFL defenses.

A stout Denver Broncos defense found this out first-hand early on Thursday evening. Check out this great 21-yard connection from Patrick Mahomes to Hardman, giving Kansas City a 7-6 lead in the process.

Despite bobbling it at first, Hardman showed tremendous concentration to come down with the catch.

The Georgia product entered Week 7 having caught 16 passes for 291 yards, including this bomb from Mahomes, on the season.
