Re: Around the NFL week 9

Throughout the build-up to the 2017 NFL draft, many scouts and pundits pegged this year’s quarterback class as a three-man affair between Mitchell Trubisky, Deshaun Watson, and DeShone Kizer. With a series of strong workouts — and a glut of other options on the free agent landscape — a big-armed fourth candidate has emerged from the Big 12.

Texas Tech’s Patrick Mahomes has had a meteoric rise through the pre-draft process, working his way from a third day option to potential first-round pick. The Browns, Texans, Chiefs, and Cardinals have all been linked to the Red Raider quarterback. As mock drafts scramble to keep up, he’s been projected to go anywhere from Arizona’s No. 13 pick to the Chargers at No. 38.

After a two-day visit with Houston, it seems unlikely he’ll slip past the 25th pick, where SB Nation’s Dan Kadar has him landing in his latest mock draft.

Drafting Mahomes will be a calculated risk

Mahomes has risen to the top of an underwhelming crop of quarterbacks. His NCAA numbers and physical talent suggest he’s No. 2 to only Deshaun Watson, but history pegs him as a backup at best.

A deeper look at his skill set shows he’s somewhere in between. His arm strength gives him the ability to make the throws that can beat even the tightest coverage. He’s more mobile than his predecessors, and he’s shown he can buy enough time in the pocket to extend plays, then make throws on the run to frustrate defenses.

His experience with Texas Tech, however, shows he’ll squander sure thing short gains to attempt big shots downfield. He can force throws that turn the frustration back on his own coaching staff. He can be skittish and undisciplined in the pocket, turning plays that rely on timing into free-for-alls with a lower chance of success. All these traits could sink his professional prospects.

But quarterbacks with the arm strength to make plays few passers can will always have a place in the NFL’s hype cannon. Sometimes that works out well (Aaron Rodgers), other times it’s a wash (Cutler), but history shows playmakers like Mahomes have a home in the first round.

KC and Reid took a chance and it paid off.

Reid wrote his ticket to the Hall of Fame with that Mahomes pick.

He'll go down as a top 10 QB if not higher when it's all said and done

Re: Around the NFL week 9

wow.
Aaron Rodgers, out of his 364 touchdown passes, only one of them was caught by a player taken in the first round. That came during the 2019 season. The player who caught the ball, tight end Marcedes Lewis, wasn’t even drafted by the Packers.

Yeah absolute head scratcher that they let one of the greatest quarterbacks ever on an island. That pick last year was a crime.

Maybe higher. All depends on longevity and what the Chiefs do to win more championships. How long Reid stays. At this point his raw talent is really second to none. So far anyway.

Re: Around the NFL week 9

Adams wasn't a 1st round pick but he's an all time great Packers WR already.. That 1st round stuff is overrated

I can't remember where I watched this but KC's GM was in Reid's ear about Mahomes long before the draft. He was really the one who got Reid on board.

Re: Around the NFL week 9

The Bears could've had Mahomes. Instead they gave up picks to get Tribisky. Ouch.

Bears and WFT love making bad decisions in drafting QBs. I would even say it is kind of our jam.

Lol hopefully this will improve with WFT going forward but hard to dispute at this point.

Totally agree but man they have not done their best to give him what he deserves.
