Bold predictions and draft grading is very important for NFL analysts and writers. The only problem is that these statements can kill their credibility if wrong.
That is the case for one writer in particular who just about had the worse take of all time regarding Patrick Mahomes soon after the Kansas City Chiefs selected him in 2017.
Ending up on the Freezing Cold Takes account is never good, even though its always easier to go back in time and laugh how wrong somebody is about a topic.
The problem with this take is that the writer was so adamant Mahomes would be a bust after a career at Texas Tech. And nothing has been further from the truth. But the writer appeared to have a bad overall understanding of the top prospects in the 2017 Draft. Because he swung and missed with another superstar named Christian McCaffrey!
