Cardinals, Texans, Bears Interested In Patrick Mahomes

Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes is one of the more divisive prospects in the 2017 draft. While he received a second-round grade from the NFL’s College Advisory Committee, reports have indicated Mahomes could possibly be a top-three selection. Mahomes seems unlikely to slip out of the first round next week, and several teams have emerged as potential suitors.Patrick Mahomes (Vertical)

The Cardinals are in search of Carson Palmer‘s long-term successor, and they “like” Mahomes, according to Peter King of TheMMQB.com, who adds Arizona may indeed “love” the Red Raider signal-caller. That jibes with reporting from Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller, and Mahomes would seemingly be a good fit in head coach Bruce Arians‘ vertical offense. The Cardinals, who own the 13th pick in the first round, attended a Mahomes workout in March.

The Texans, too, are in need of a quarterback, and head coach Bill O’Brien “absolutely loves” Mahomes, tweets Tom Pelissero of USA Today. Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com reported last week Mahomes is unlikely to fall past Houston at pick No. 25, and the Texans are meeting with Mahomes today. Following the trade of Brock Osweiler, Houston only has two quarterbacks — Tom Savage and Brandon Weeden — on its roster.

Finally, Mahomes was scheduled to meet with the Bears last weekend, per Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. Chicago inked Mike Glennon to a three-year deal last month, but that may not eliminate the club from selecting another passer with the third overall pick, according to Dane Brugler of CBSSports.com.

      I could see them taking Mahomes in the 2nd if he’s there. If they wait until the 3rd they might as well not bother taking any QB.

      What do you think George? Should the Bears screw up another first round draft choice? What does gramma say? Oh you guys don’t care, you’re still making money. It’s a shame what’s happened to the Bears. Is it two or three regimes in a row that have failed now?

        It’s embarrassing. Being a Bears fan in Patriot land is just so much fun…..it went from bad to worse when they picked Trestman over Arians.

        The Bears’ draft charts are always a joke–they’ll will find a way to screw up.
