Mahomes has a lot of potential but I don’t think he was worth trading up for. The Chiefs also don’t have any wide receivers. They need to give Mahomes some talent if they see him as a future star.

The Chiefs have never had a great quarterback so I hope Mahomes lives up to the hype.

It’s good that he can sit behind Alex Smith for a few years and learn from him.
— Hunter Wiles, senior in civil engineering
I think it is a great pick. He may not be ready to play right now but he has potential to be a very good quarterback. Much better than Alex Smith is.

It was a bad choice. They have the parts to win now, but drafted a quarterback that needs work.
