The Kansas City Chiefs traded up with the Buffalo Bills to select Texas Tech Red Raiders quarterback Patrick Mahomes with the 10th overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft. What It Means: The Chiefs gave up picks 27 and 91 in this year's draft, along with their first-round pick in 2018 to move up and take Mahomes. The former Red Raider QB has a cannon arm and has the intelligence to succeed at the NFL level. The real question will be if he competes with Alex Smith for the starting job in 2017 or holds a clipboard and learns the position from Smith and coach Andy Reid. Mahomes...

Alex Smith still starting for Chiefs in 2017

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith received head coach Andy Reid backing once again as the 2017 starting quarterback following the selection of rookie Patrick Mahomes. What It Means: The Chiefs have spent much of the offseason propping up Smith, but on Thursday they traded three premium picks to come up 17 spots and take Mahomes. Reid acknowledged that Mahomes isn't ready, and Smith will be the starter for the immediate future. "I don’t worry about Alex on this," Reid said. "Alex knows we trust him. Alex is the starting quarterback. Nothing is going to change there.... He...

Chiefs’ Alex Smith told Patrick Mahomes he’ll be in his corner

The Kansas City Chiefs prepared for the 2017 NFL Draft by watching film on the draft’s quarterbacks - with their own quarterbacks.

The Chiefs did end up taking a quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, who told the KC media that Alex Smith has reached out to him. “He told me to come in and work hard as I can,” Mahomes said of Alex. “He said he’s going to be there in my corner as well and teach me as I go. It’s the type of guy he is. He’s a great...

5 reasons Patrick Mahomes just walked into a perfect situation with the Chiefs

5 reasons Patrick Mahomes just walked into a perfect situation with the Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs drafted a first round quarterback and no I’m not lying. It’s Patrick Mahomes for the Chiefs. He walks into a perfect situation in Kansas City. I explain why... Mahomes could sit for a year Alex Smith has two more years left on his deal so he could sit for two more years. If Alex Smith takes the Chiefs to, say, the AFC Championship game this year, they’re not going to get rid of him of the next year. So two years is possible. The Chiefs have a great roster They’re strong from top to bottom. This isn’t a 2-14 team that a quarterback is walking into. This is a...

The Kansas City Chiefs have traded with the Buffalo Bills to the No. 10 spot in the NFL Draft to select Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes. This is the first time the Chiefs have drafted a quarterback in the first round since Todd Blackledge in 1983. FINALLY!!! The Chiefs gave up this year’s first round pick, a third round pick and next year’s first round pick in order to move up to No. 10. It’s a significant price - especially next year’s first - but the Chiefs get the most important position in sports - a quarterback. The Chiefs now have someone to put behind Alex Smith and mentor....

Peter King’s mock draft gives Chiefs their quarterback

Peter King posted his 2017 NFL mock draft and he has the Kansas City Chiefs taking a player we’ve been talking about all spring: Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes. “Not what Andy Reid planned, but the talent is too good to pass up,” King wrote on The MMQB. “Alex Smith heir.” King’s mock had three quarterbacks in the first round: Trubisky No. 6 to Browns, Watson No. 17 (trade-up with Washington) and Mahomes No. 27 to the Chiefs. No first round for DeShone Kizer. King said he wanted to get Cal’s Davis Webb into the first but couldn’t. I’m not sure what he means by “not what...
