Mahomes racked up 11,252 passing yards and 93 touchdowns in just three seasons with the Red Raiders. "He's intelligent. He's got great skill, and I think he'll be a great Kansas City Chief when it's all said and done". "We had him here for six hours".
With their curiosity up, the Chiefs continued to follow Mahomes through the draft process. It marked the first time Kansas City had selected a Red Raider since the late James Hadnot was chosen in the third round of the 1980 draft.
"He came in here and we drilled him", Reid said of his new protégé.
The downfield play-action game is something Mahomes would absolutely excel at, too.
Mahomes was still a star on the basketball court, totaling 15 points, eight rebounds and eight steals in a trip to Nacogdoches as a junior.
Refining his touch, including elements of his game from footwork, to discretion with the ball, to command of Chiefs coach Andy Reid's exhaustive play-calling verbiage, now is officially a program in the making.
Sure, Mahomes has the arm power to make certain throws, but to be a complete passer, he'll have to learn to step into his passes and develop a more consistent technique. "So for me, it's just going to be about proving those guys wrong, going out there and really showing my knowledge of the game and just competing. It felt like a great relationship already". In Kansas City, he'll need to spit out a longer play call in a huddle and understand what it means. I'm going to examine some of the things that Mahomes does that makes him a fit for the Chiefs, as well as look at some of the plays that make him so special.
"He's got to have a better idea of when he can take chances and when he can't", Mayock said. "I knew coach Reid and all the coaching staff and the owner, I knew they liked me a lot". They have some nice pieces I like in receiver Pierre Garcon and running back Carlos Hyde, but they have got to find some more playmakers in this draft. "But I was extremely happy when it happened".

That's a role often reserved for an National Football League backup, but in this case a quarterback the Chiefs felt good enough to move up 17 spots and declare as the best player they could go after in the 2017 draft, and, apparently, the best quarterback they rated when factoring future drafts.
Dorsey is confident he just changed the Chiefs' fortunes.
Here's a complete list of the Chiefs draft picks so far and the choices left heading into Day 3.
With a room full of people and his former Whitehouse teammates behind him, the buzz started that KC had traded up to the No. 10 pick with the Buffalo Bills and the Chiefs were selecting Mahomes.
Following the selection of MS tight end Evan Engram at No. 23 overall, Giants general manager Jerry Reese refused to discuss whether or not any trade discussions took place.
"What you're doing is building the future of the organization", Dorsey said. I even expect they'd all be dumb not to and disappoint their fan base if they didn't.
"I don't think it was a lot because I think he's going to be a really good player, he's in a flawless situation, he can sit back, he can learn, he can develop, he's got the tutelage of some really good coaches and I couldn't be more excited", Dorsey said.
