However, in 2017, when he was still awaiting the answer to his destiny, his performance at the NFL combine was anything but impressive-in fact, it was horrendous.
In both of his 40-yard sprint attempts at the NFL Combine, Mahomes ran a terrible 4.80. This number was not good for his stock, even if he is not a runner by purpose.
He became well-known during the NFL draft period. This was due to the fact that, despite the fact that he was a very different player, he still possessed several strengths that the ideal coaching staff could grow upon.
The perfect coaching staff was waiting to shape him into a nearly perfect player for the Kansas City Chiefs. It would have been unfortunate to watch his abilities go to waste on a different squad that would have attempted to develop him into a more conventional player.
Patrick Mahomes’ numbers at the NFL Combine
His performance’s official stats include a 40-yard sprint time of 4.80 and a 30-inch vertical jump. A wide jump of 9 feet, 6 inches was also performed, along with a 3-cone drill that took 6.88 seconds.
He was given a 6.30 grade by the NFL, and it was predicted that he would develop into a plus-starter. Every NFL fan respects him for becoming a real superstar because it makes the game much more entertaining.
