East Texas Native Gets Drafted In The Top 10 Of The NFL Draft
He had the fastest rise in the NFL Draft process since the end of the college football season, and now he's a Kansas City Chief.
Patrick Mahomes played at Whitehouse High School, just south of Tyler, TX before heading to Texas Tech. While in college, he lit up the stat sheet in their "air raid" offense, but that's not why Kansas City traded up to the #10 pick to take him.
Scouts keep talking about his raw talent. He can make any throw, from any position on the field, even while running. That is something that has NFL teams excited, and convinced Kansas City to make a huge move to get him.
