Patrick Mahomes

  • Multiple coaches and scouts in attendance for Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes‘ pro day told Matt Miller that the quarterback was unimpressive.
  • Miller received a number of less-than-positive texts about Mahomes including: “Thrower, not a passer,“forces everything,” “got some [Colin] Kaepernick to his arm” and “not sure you can teach timing and touch.
  • Miller polled six executives this week about where Mahomes will end up and four said the Chiefs while the other two mentioned the Texans.
  • Mary Kay Cabot reports that the Browns are also hosting Mahomes for a pre-draft visit on Friday.
  • Mahomes was among the prospects that visited the Jaguars on Thursday. (Mike Kaye)

  • Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun writes that more roster cuts could be coming from the Ravens.
  • To start, Zrebiec suggests rescinding the $1.79 million original-round restricted free agent tenders they used on offensive linemen James Hurst or Ryan Jensen and re-signing them to deals with lower salary cap numbers.
  • Zrebiec still expects the Ravens to release veteran CB Kyle Arrington at some point, but they may wait until he can pass a physical.
  • Another possibility would be to move on from veteran TE Benjamin Watson, even though Baltimore would like to him.


  • John McClain believes the Texans will “definitely” take if Patrick Mahomes, Deshaun Watson, or Mitchell Trubisky if they’re still available at No. 25 overall.
  • McClain mentions that Mahomes’ stock is “soaring” right now he doesn’t think he will be available to the Texans in round one.
