Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman fired back at some of his critics on social media on Friday -- only to later delete the post.
The third-year wideout vented his frustration in response to a user on Twitter, seemingly taking exception to comparisons to the other wide receivers in his draft class, as well as critiques of his route-running.
"Stop comparing me to WRs in my class," Hardman said. "They are the #1 option on there team! And none of them can come to this team and be a 1st or 2nd option! I wonder about people sometimes."
The Chiefs selected Hardman in the back half of the second round in 2019, in what turned out to be a deeper class of wide receivers than some pundits had forecasted.
