Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – Texas Tech Quarterback Pat Mahomes joined In the Loop on Radio Row Friday. He’s taken a look at the Texans organization and likes the possibility of landing in Houston after the coming draft. There are no guarantees for where he may end up, but he does think the Texans could be a good fit for him.
“I mean it’s definitely appealing. I mean, it’s definitely something where you know that you’re going to have to go in and just protect the ball and if you score a couple touchdowns, you’re going to win football games. The Texans have a great team. Also, I’m from Texas. I’m from Tyler, Texas, so it helps out a lot,” Mahomes said.
Pat is an attractive prospect for many teams early in the draft outlook because of his arm strength. He doesn’t think that is the only factor that makes him an NFL caliber quarterback.
“I think the thing that’s going to wow people is the accuracy. I feel like I’m really accurate, especially when my feet are under me and I can throw on the run really accurate. I feel like that’s what’s really going to wow people. The arm strength I think everybody knows about, but for me it’s about the accuracy and putting those balls exactly where I want them,” Mahomes said.
He also credited the Texas Tech offense and Coach Kliff Kingsbury for helping him learn things that could translate to the NFL.
“I think that’s going to be a big plus for me. I’m really going to go out there and show them how our offense translates to the NFL. That’s just the biggest thing for me I feel like NFL teams want to see and I’m going to really drill that… With Kingsbury playing in the NFL, he’s really taking the spread system and used a lot of NFL knowledge to it. We actually break down a lot of NFL plays in our game plans and transfer them to our offense so I feel like that will help me out a lot,” Pat said.
