Texas Tech Quarterback Patrick Mahomes Is Considered A First Round Lock

There is no secret that this is a weak crop of quarterbacks available for the 2017 NFL Draft. Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes was thought to be a potential 2nd round pick but now has created a lot of buzz for himself heading into the NFL Scouting Combine. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports is reporting that Mahomes could be a top 3 pick barring a good combine showing.

“Keep hearing more buzz about Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes. He’ll be a “riser” by the combine, I’m sure, and the more time teams spend with him the more the evaluators will like him. At worst he’s the third quarterback taken in the draft and I wouldn’t rule him out as a top-three pick, either, depending on what quarterback-starved teams like the 49ers, Browns, and Bears do in the trade or free agent market. I don’t think he gets past the Texans in the first round.”

After the conclusion of the Combine, I will release my quarterback big board but I do think Mahomes has a chance to make a nice career for himself but needs time to develop. Mahomes actually stole the college starting quarterback job from Davis Webb forcing Webb to transfer. Webb put on a show at the Senior Bowl.

The 49ers, Browns, and Bears are all obviously desperate for a quarterback. Mitch Trubisky from UNC seems to be a target for those teams as well.
