Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes to enter 2017 NFL Draft

  Patrick Mahomes announced in a press conference on Tuesday that he plans to enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who led the FBS in passing yards, points responsible for and total offense, announced Tuesday that he plans to enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

In his career with the Red Raiders, Mahomes threw for 11,252 yards and 93 touchdowns, completing 65.7 percent of his passes. He ended 2016 with a passing efficiency of 156.97.

The junior signal caller is still recovering from a wrist injury, which could concern NFL teams. But his performance this season still figures to make him one of the top quarterbacks taken.
