QB Search 2017: Player Profile Pat Mahomes

*This is part five of a 10 part series where we will take a look at the Cleveland Browns options for the elusive quarterback of the future.

Name: Patrick Mahomes II

Height: 6’3”

Weight: 215 pounds

Throws: Right

School: Texas Tech

NFL Team: N/A

Draft Spot or Projection: Round 1-2

strengths:  Incredible arm talent…shows great touch…possibly the strongest arm in the draft…accuracy has gotten better from his freshman year until now…great improvisation…stays in pocket even as things break down…delivers the ball from so many angles, but always with elite velocity behind it…probably the most fun quarterback to watch in 2017 draft…shows on field swagger…has unbelievable belief in his arm…can squeeze the ball into the tightest of windows, even with strange-looking mechanics at times…always looks for the big play…athletic…has everything you want in a quarterback that is absolutely uncoachable…

Weaknesses: Tendency to trust his arm too much…holds on to the ball while looking for the big play too often…comes from an air raid offense…needs to improve anticipation…mechanics go absolutely terrible at times, but with him it is a gift and a curse…may take a few years to fully develop while making his head coach go nuts…

Summary: Mahomes is a joy to watch. He could be the biggest value at quarterback in this draft because the sky is the ceiling if everything falls into place for this talented kid. He is either going to be Jay Cutler with Johnny Manziel’s improvisation ability or he will be the next Brett Favre.

Up Next: Clemson QB Deshaun Watson

Previously: North Carolina QB Mitch Trubisky
