Mahomes’ NFL Prospects. NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein talked about a quarterback prospects and has QB Patrick Mahomes 8th on his list:
In 2015, Mahomes led the nation with 393 total yards per game, and joined Chad Kelly and Deshaun Watson as the three quarterbacks to throw for at least 30 touchdowns and rush for 10 or more scores. Mahomes has an NFL arm, and can crank up plenty of zip for the deep outs or to fit the ball into tight spots. He plays with an undeniable swagger, and has the mobility to extend plays and win with his arm or feet. While he has size, toughness and arm strength, Mahomes’ accuracy needs to improve and he will need to eliminate his careless interceptions on intermediate and deep throws. He doesn’t always throw with anticipation or win from the pocket, but he’s a natural-born leader and competitor.
Why the Big 12 Wants the Baylor Information. Via CBS Sports’ Jon Solomon wrote about why the Big 12 wants Baylor’s information regarding the sexual assault investigation:
What transpired at Baylor, both before and after the university released some findings from an investigation, caused serious concern among some Big 12 presidents about potential NCAA violations and how deep the scandal goes, according to three conference sources who requested anonymity to speak on the matter.
