WATCH: Alex Smith Hits Travis Kelce With The 8-Yard Touchdown Pass

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is the kind of tight end every quarterback likes to have. He's a big enough guy that eh can go across the middle, catch the ball in traffic, and not cry later about getting set up by his QB to get laid out by  a linebacker. He's a great possession receiver and he has the kind of speed that can make a short reception turn in to a big play...
