For a while, the consensus seemed to be that UNC’s Mitch Trubisky would be the first QB off the board in this year’s draft with Clemson’s Deshaun Watson, and Notre Dame’s DeShone Kizer following afterwards. Now, it seems like Mahomes could crack the top three at the position and, according to one report, possibly go inside of the first three overall picks. The Browns, 49ers, and Bears hold the first three picks and they could all be in search of a QB come draft time. If Mahomes doesn’t hear his name called that early, Jason La Canfora of says that the Texans at No. 25 likely represent his floor.

The scouting combine in Indianapolis should give us a better idea of where Mahomes might go in April. In a draft class that has no slam dunks at the quarterback position, we could see lots of board shuffling between now and the spring.

    Steelers need to get him and let the loser backup now go to free agency.

    There was a really good article on Fansidd’s Dawg Pound Daily concerning Mahomes, and the previously drafted QBs who ran the same offensive scheme in college.
    Doesn’t bode well for NFL success.

      College Spread offense QBs are always hard to project. They can’t be thrown into a starting job right away and be expected to play at a high level. They need at least a year if not two.

    Could be wrong but reminds me of Aaron Rodgers, mobileish and has hell of an arm just needs a year or two as backup
