How the Giants rated Patrick Mahomes in the 2017 NFL Draft

Inside the Giants’ pre-draft scouting of Patrick Mahomes: ‘Would love to get my f—ing hands on that guy’

Watching Patrick Mahomes throw deep passes over college defenses left Ben McAdoo in the mood to throw his own bombshell into the Giants’ draft room.

“I’d love to get my hands on that guy,” McAdoo said, according to two people who were in the room who heard the F-bomb.

About a week before the 2017 NFL Draft, where the Giants were reviewing potential picks with the 23rd pick, this announcement by the coach seemed a bit odd.

Sure enough, the Brass Mahomes wowed the Giants at the Boy Scouts rally in February: one person in an Indianapolis hotel room called it “a memorable interview all the time.” True, his college bar was full of innovation in the toy and moxi industry. Yes, McAdoo – a former Packers coach – has been heard for months around Giants headquarters describing Mahomes as a quality that resembles Brett Favre.
