Chiefs' Rookies on Their First Taste of Kansas City BBQ: "The Hype is Real"

The Chiefs’ draft picks sampled some Kansas City barbecue earlier this week

Each of the Kansas City Chiefs' six draft picks embarked on a rite of passage earlier this week as the rookies gave Kansas City barbecue a try for the very first time.

The players – linebacker Breeland Speaks, defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi, linebacker Dorian O'Daniel, defensive back Armani Watts, defensive back Tremon Smith and offensive guard Kahlil McKenzie – tried sausage, brisket, pulled pork, ribs and burnt ends before ranking their favorite dishes at the end.

To quote O'Daniel, "the hype is real."

Check out the video below to see which dish the group liked the most.
