Patrick Mahomes “exactly” where he should be in development

Patrick Mahomes’ head is spinning as the Chiefs’ offseason winds down. Everything is new for the first-round pick who ran the spread system at Texas Tech.

But Mahomes has time to remake himself as the Chiefs’ plan for him is to sit, watch and learn behind Alex Smith and Tyler Bray.

“Right now we’re trying to get the game to slow down for him,” co-offensive coordinator Matt Nagy said via Blair Kerkhoff of the Kansas City Star. “It’s as basic as getting out of the huddle, knowing where everybody is at on our side of the ball and then being able to focus on where the defense is.

“We’re at ground zero right now. We joke around that it’s a piece of clay that you get to mold. You sit here doing fundamentals that you do at the high school level, and that’s OK. No matter who comes in there, we’re going to do that.”

Nagy said Mahomes is “exactly” where he should be in his development.

“When we got him out there, we knew he would be a little raw,” Nagy said. “But that’s the run part, trying to mold him into what we want.”

    Mahomes could not be in a better spot. If he keeps his head in the game and learns, Andy Reid and the Chiefs coaching staff will get this kid to be a really good, maybe great, NFL QB. He seems to have the right temperament to adapt to the NFL. But, with all draft picks, especially high QB picks, time will tell. Probably won’t know for at least three years.

    He may or may not turn out to be anything, but at least we tried. A wasted generation of not having the guts to even try.

    I like to see them do the Chiefs huddle from 1969. Is that even legal?

    Also, I’d like to see Chris Conley or Albert Wilson break out the Elmo Wright touchdown dance about 10 times apiece. I know Tyreek and Kelsey will get 10 each.
