We know Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes is a hell of a quarterback, but he got some huge props from one guy looking to stop him. That fella would be Arizona State defensive coordinator Keith Patterson who used Mahomes in the same sentence with Magic Johnson and Brett Favre.
Patterson said, “He plays football like Magic Johnson played point guard. You know, just big, he’ll run up in there and all of the sudden you got guys converging on him and then, whoever you left in coverage, he’ll just dump it right over your head.”
As for the Favre comparison, Patterson added, “He’s kind of a Brett Favre type quarterback. Just has an uncanny ability to get outside the pocket.”
