Chiefs strike gold with Mahomes after QB draft troubles


April 22, 2020

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — BEST FIRST-ROUND DRAFT PICK: Patrick Mahomes. Good luck finding a more recent "best first-round pick" than the No. 10 overall choice in 2017. After a learning season behind Alex Smith, the QB from Texas Tech led the Chiefs to the AFC title game in his first year as starter. Then Mahomes bounced back from a midseason knee injury to lead Kansas City to its first Super Bowl championship in 50 years with a comeback win over the San Francisco 49ers. (Runners-up include Hall of Famers DT Buck Buchanan in 1963, LB Derrick Thomas in 1989 and TE Tony Gonzalez in 1997.)
