    The kid has everything we need. hes a gunslinger, he can run, he has the size. he will be there at 25 and we might even have to trade up to get him after the predraft workouts. he is the real deal, better than kizer, more proven the trubiski, quicker reads than watson. he is the solution.

    I like Mahomes a good deal, would love him in the 2nd and not really complain if we scooped him at 25, but saying flat out 'the next ______ HOFer' is a pretty lopsided argument.

    The kid has his warts. I think they're workable, but they're there.

    Tom Brady isn't draft eligible.

    And quit making disingenuous arguments if you really want people to listen to your point.

    His footwork is horrible. Throws off his back foot alot. Kid needs alot of work and I wouldnt draft before the 3rd round.

    The issues that give people pause have been documented in the draft forum. Great arm, but some really poor habits that will get him in alot of trouble if he doesn't fix them. Tons of guys with great arms fail in the NFL.

    Just some highlights of what people have said:

    Throws off back foot consistently. Fades away alot of the time while throwing. Scared to step into throws when pressured.

    Holds ball low consistently. It's obvious as to why this is a problem. Combines that with a tendency to hold the ball longer than needed.

    Off-schedule with the offense.

    Throws up alot of prayers.

    Even the team that drafted Brett Favre didn't think he'd be "Brett Favre".

    The entire NFL passed on Brady an average of 6.6 times. Very stupid argument. Gus wasn't stupid. Change your avatar immediately, good sir!!! :kitten: on the last part.

    If you don't think Favre was mobile, then I'd have to question your analysis on QB's all together. QB's don't have to be as fast as Vick to be considered mobile.

    I remember when the experts had Dak Prescott as a four year "project" who was going to be a decent backup someday. These guys are pretty much saying the same about Pat. I would take him in the first round if he were to be there at 25. There is no chance that he falls to us on the second round, the kid has the skills and character. I don't see how we can pass up on this guy if he's to be there at 25, but then again we passed on Carr and others. Decisions that have gone on to bite us on the ass...
