Overview:

Mahomes was highly productive at Texas Tech, where he completed over 850 passes, for over 11,000 yards, and throwing 93 touchdowns, with just 29 interceptions. He has good size, is very accurate, he has a strong arm, distributes the ball to multiple players, and is good under pressure. He also has a good deep ball, he makes something out of nothing, and usually puts the ball where only his receiver can get it. On the downside, he is not the most mobile QB, he also tends to take too many sacks, he throws some ball a little high at times, and he does not have the best speed, but that does not hamper his game. And the only other thing that may scare some teams off is that he may more of a system quarterback, especially playing in that Texas Tech offense, which has not really produced many top level NFL quarterbacks. But with that said, I expect Mahomes to be among the first 4 quarterbacks taken, and a likely mid-late 1st round pick, based on production, talent, his skill set, and potential.
