Alex Smith led NFL QBs on passes thrown with the most yards of separation. While not a bad stat on its own, it also indicates an issue Smith had that Patrick Mahomes doesn't: throwing into tight windows without hesitation when the read is correct. Robinson and Chris Conley are receivers who earned draft-day selections for making plays on targets Smith rarely throws. Whether it's Robinson or Conley, look for Mahomes to get one of them more involved in 2018.

Summary

Conley is a tall, strong, and fast receiver with good rebounding skill on the perimeter. He was a productive target on fade routes in college, but these targets haven't been Alex Smith's strength in the NFL. Conley has been an active offensive contributor but not a highly-targeted option. The promotion of quarterback Patrick Mahomes could change Conley's target selection and totals because Mahomes is a good improviser who doesn't hesitate about making tight-window throws. At the same time, flankers and slot receivers often earn a lot of targets in spread offenses. Conley will likely play the split end with Hill and Watkins switching between flanker and slot, respectively. Don't expect every-week starter production from Conley, but his athletic upside, the change in quarterback, and the offensive scheme make him an upside pick in the later rounds. (May 12)
