The Kansas City Chiefs were in the market for a quarterback in the 2017 draft as they made a move trading draft picks to move up to select Patrick Mahomes in the first round of the draft. Mahomes is a system quarterback who played college football at Texas Tech. It left a lot of media pundits scratching their heads and downgrading the Kansas City Chiefs for the upcoming season. KC traded away two first round picks along with a third round pick for a quarterback who couldn’t beat a ranked team in his college career. He is not a pocket passer and will have a huge learning curve to become a starting quarter. This is Alex Smith’s team at the moment which should give Mahomes time to learn how to develop inside the pocket. Smith protects the football and is a game manager. He completed 67% of his throws last year with only 15 touchdowns and 8 picks. Smith is not a big play quarterback and big plays are critical to winning playoff football games. KC was seventh in the league in scoring defense surrendering only 19.4 points per game. Andy Reid with four years at Kansas City has only one playoff victory and that came in an AFC Wildcard game.
