KANSAS CITY, Mo. — One of the most impressive players to stand out during training camp was Chiefs first-round draft pick Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

The rookie running back quickly showed off not only his ability to run, but receive.

The former Louisiana State University Tiger also adapted to NFL speed at a rate that not only impressed his coaches, but caught the eye of the Super Bowl Champ himself, quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Now as the young talent prepares for his first League game, he said "jitters" are expected, but that's what "makes people, make plays."

41 Action News sat down with CEH for an exclusive interview ahead of the Chiefs home opener against the Houston Texans to hear how the rookie has been fitting in with his new Super Bowl Team.

Although it's still surreal to step in the huddle with the Super Bowl MVP, the running back is more than ready to help KC run it back and earn his ring.
