Other than one game from his rookie season, Patrick Mahomes II remains something of a mystery to those outside the Kansas City Chiefs' circle. The Chiefs brought last season's first-round draft pick along slowly as the backup behind starting quarterback Alex Smith.
Mahomes is no longer an unknown to his teammates and coaches, though even they sometimes lack the proper descriptions when asked about his skills. Tight end Travis Kelce, in an appearance last week on ESPN's Golic and Wingo, said providing an accurate account of the way Mahomes affects a game is similar to doing so for Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill before his rookie season in 2016.
"You couldn't describe it," Kelce said of Hill. "The guy is fast. The guy is extremely fast. That still doesn't explain his difference in how he plays the game from everybody else around him.
