Bills set to work out Patrick Mahomes

The Bills agreed to a new contract with Tyrod Taylor this offseason, but that’s not stopping them from taking a look at one of the top quarterback prospects in this year’s draft.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Texas Tech’s Patrick Mahomes is set to have a private workout with Buffalo next week.

The Bills join a growing list of teams putting Mahomes through his paces heading into the draft. He worked out for the Jets over the weekend and has also done on-field work for the Bengals, Chargers, Cardinals, Saints and Browns.

Those teams have varying levels of immediate need for a quarterback and the big-armed Mahomes profiles as the kind of prospect who will need some time to be ready to run an NFL offense after playing in Texas Tech’s wide-open attack in college. The Bills pick 10th in the first round, which seems early to take a quarterback given Taylor’s presence but a strong workout could lead them to consider another approach to bringing Mahomes into the fold.

    I would love it if the Bills can get him in the 2nd round (45th pick)!

    Yes he played in a stat machine offense but he’s the most ready of who is available this year.

    Bills will screw up the draft like they have the last three years under whaley

    There are other pressing needs at the moment. My guess is this is just due diligence, in case Mahomes slips to a later round.
