A look at the second of three mandatory minicamp days held at The University of Kansas Hospital Training Complex.

Plays of the Day

Rookie linebacker Ramik Wilson had a nice interception during team drills. He stepped in front of a Chase Daniel pass across the middle and was able to secure the catch before going to the ground. 

The other top defensive play of the day came from linebacker James-Michael Johnson, who was able to knock down a pass from quarterback Aaron Murray that was headed towards tight end Adam Schiltz. Johnson lunged and was just able to deflect the pass across the middle.

On the offensive side, the top play was a catch across the middle from tight end Travis Kelce, who leapt up with one hand and was able to snag the ball out the air more than 15 yards down the field. Alex Smith placed the ball between a couple of defenders and Kelce showed the kind of ability that Chiefs fans are excited to see more of in 2015.

Finally, there was one perfect pass from Alex Smith to Jeremy Maclin on a crossing route about 20 yards down the field. Smith threw the ball into an open window that had Maclin coming out of nowhere as he broke open across the field and made the catch. Smith didn't wait for Maclin to be open before he threw the ball down the field, which showed the kind of trust and timing that these two have developed throughout the offseason.
