How the NFL Overlooked Patrick Mahomes Before His Incredible MVP Season

Patrick Mahomes just completed one of the most dominant seasons in NFL History, all in his first year as a starter. Just two years ago, Mahomes was the 10th overall pick in the NFL Draft, a selection by the Kansas City Chiefs that was thought to be a major risk at the time. But Andy Reid certainly had a plan, and two years later it's safe to say the risk has been averted and the future of the Chiefs is taking over the league. Watch this video to see why he wasn't taken even higher, as a dynamic talent who was viewed as a multi-year project when he left Texas Tech for the NFL Draft.

    • Set the edge I hate to say it but you're wrong about what you said about the system fitting in the NFL. Those 3.quarterbacks from the browns offensive line, a weak patch of receivers, and a horrible defense especially tom couch, if he played for another team, he could've had success

  • i'll tell you how...nobody gives a shit/watches texas tech football. I remember sitting there at jones stadium watching this kid running around making impossible down field throws from weird body angles right before my eyes. My first thought was how in hell is this kid falling through the cracks at the national media level. Truely a joy to watch live.

  • I fear for Mahomes. He still has a lot of schoolboy tricks and bad habits. Last year he had so many weapons, but this year he doesn't. I think a lot of people will have him, not totally, but mostly figured out. Not saying he will blow out, but I do think his production will be down about 15% at least.

  • Mahommes wont ever produce like this again. Defenses will adjust, he wont have the top talent at his disposal, and with the loss of all the talent around him his idiotic mistakes wont be turned into exciting plays. His success had more to do with the talent of his targets, and Andy Reid, then it had to do with Mahomes himself. He is talented, there is no question about that, but 2018 isnt going to be the norm. Guaranteed as he ages and gets smarter, he will be taking less foolish risks, especially since he wont have the talent around him to make his foolish risks pay off. 2018 was fun to watch, but dont think it will ever happen again.

  • Manziel was a top NFL-talent, but with his shitty work ethic he could never use his potential...

    ThePadi94ThePadi9415 dni temu
  • You just never know. So many "talented" QBs who can't make the reads or actually improve their mechanics fail in the NFL. But Mahomes has the mind for it, and he clearly put the work in. His reads and mechanics going from college to 2nd year pro shot up very quickly. He certainly had a good coach + supporting cast situation, but he made the most of it and became a direct part of what makes that offense so strong, rather than someone getting carried. Goes to show that elite QBs can come from any system, but it's still not easy to predict which ones will get there each year.

  • This title makes no sense. Anybody that know's College Football, they knew Patrick Mahomes can throw the deep ball with ease. The reason why, is he came from a spread offensive system. He also had mechanical work he had to Iron out his rookie year. And Texas Tech plays 1-3 games against legit team that are ranked. Sec ACC and Pac 12 are nationally televised more. I have to say in the past two years I have seen way more Washington St games nationally televised than Texas Tech. Last year Washington St came of nowhere, they were decent but not like last year's.

  • Patrick Mahomes was definitely a good choice he could've brought Kansas City the Vince Lombardi trophy but Dee Ford ruined his big chance even as a patriot fan I have to admit Tom Brady and the Patriots lucked out Mahomes was stronger that day but because Dee Ford wasn't careful so Tom Brady's losing pick didn't count then the patriots won the coin toss in over time so then it was just a matter of time

  • I'm gonna take a wait and see approach. Great, the kid blew the doors off the NFL in his first season. Now let's see him repeat the process. It sure won't be easy. Last year the Chiefs schedule strength was 19th. This year it's 5th. Yes, he'll have a year of experience under his belt, but other teams now have a year of game footage to try and figure him out. Oh, and he's missing one of his biggest weapons, and more than likely will be missing another. I'm not saying he can't still be very good or great. I'm just saying it wouldn't be the first time an NFL qb has had a great rookie year, only to take a large step back in the years following. My guess is he still stays in the top ten conversation by season's end, but his numbers drop down around the 35-40 td, 4,000 yard range. Maybe he throws a few more picks too.

    • no KC fan expects another 50 TD performance..but hopefully the defense will improve enough to where he wont HAVE to have great games for them to win...that defense was god awful last year
