“The junior’s production has been other-worldly in two-plus seasons as a starter for the Red Raiders in a system that kept him in the shotgun formation full-time and afforded him an average of 49 pass attempts per game. “ –Chase Goodbread
Despite playing in the Air Raid offense, which has produced a tremendous amount of QB stats at the college level, but not much as far as players translating that at the next level, Mahomes has got the attention of scouts around the NFL. With prototypical height, build, and arm strength. He moves around the pocket well, and has shown accuracy and arm strength that is needed for a more pro style system. Mahomes will be under the microscope during the draft process to see his level of understanding of defenses and NFL offensive schemes. Is a gunslinger with one of the strongest arms to come out of college in years. Likes to get out of the pocket a bit too much.
