    "There's nothing like Proclamation Season, with coaches and players hyping the potential of unheralded individuals at every turn. Typically, I just ignore these shout-outs, chalking them up to offseason fodder. But occasionally, some of the bluster -- when it's bold, but also sensible -- grabs my attention.

    After hearing former*Kansas City Chiefs*edge rusher*Tamba Hali*raving about*Patrick Mahomes*on NFL Network's "Good Morning Football" this week, I'm beginning to buy into the hype that's swelling around the second-year quarterback.

    "You're going to get a complete player,"*Hali said. "I mean, he's a smart player. He can throw the ball. Athletically, he's gifted. You don't have to coach it. In practice, I'd watch him just look guys off.*Eric Berry, you look him off and complete the ball. He did it to*Marcus Peters*a lot. People don't know what's coming. I don't want to hype him, but I compare him to Brett Favre. He runs around the field and he throws the ball and he's just having fun."

    Whoa!"

    I liked him coming out of the draft more than any other QB. Anxious to see how he does.

    I used to play his dad in bball, football, and baseball. He was great at everything but I was surprised that he had such a decent MLB career.
    And that Paul Thomas didn't.

    His game is nothing like Kaepernick.

    The article had Favre comparisons but I think he's more like Donovan McNabb tbh

    3-4 rounds are you serious? This is a guy you take in like the 14-16 range.

    He has a tough schedule to start the season. I could see him catching fire week 5 on and being waiver wire gold

    Lol I'll hold out until late rounds if I can for sure but if I get the sense he might go I don't mind going as high as 3-4 round pick

    I've got 3 leagues from $500 to 1200 and I'm pushing all my chips in on getting wrs/rbs in the first few rounds and then Patrick.

    It'll be fun lol

    I don't see that happening. Someone will take him in the late rounds as a second QB and hold him.
