2. Patrick Mahomes

Mahomes won the starting quarterback job this offseason, and he’s looked really impressive through the first three games.

Like I said earlier, the Red Raiders use the second best passing attack in the nation. Not only has he put up his own gaudy numbers, but he’s raised the play of his teammates. Wide receiver Reginald Davis has become a key play maker for the Red Raiders, and Mahomes has played a role in his development.

This season Mahomes has completed 66.4% of his passes for 1029 yards and 9 touchdowns. He threw 2 interceptions against Arkansas, but was extremely accurate as he completed 26 of his 30 passes.

He also showcased his blocking skills against Arkansas.

Mahomes natural ability to move around the pocket and create time is also uncanny. Don’t be surprised if Mahomes is the next great spread quarterback at Texas Tech.
