NFL fans and analysts immediately jump to bold conclusions after each and every NFL Draft. Grading all the picks is a big business for writers, and many make bold claims in order to try to be right.
The only problem is that these bold grades can come back to haunt individuals and hurt their credibility. That is the case for one writer who just had to share how bad Patrick Mahomes was once the Kansas City Chiefs selected him in 2017.
Ending up on the Freezing Cold Takes account is never good, though it is easier to laugh in hindsight at anything that is proven wrong.
The problem with this take is that the writer was so adamant Mahomes would be a bust after a career at Texas Tech that...saw the quarterback put up NFL numbers on a college schedule. It seems as though the writer appeared to have a bad overall understanding of the top prospects in the 2017 Draft.
Yikes. This writer didn't appear to like any of the top prospects for some reason. Why all the hate?
The Mahomes prediction is an all-time terrible take, and this deserves to be shared far and wide to show the dangers of declaring a player a bust immediately after the draft. Doing so could ruin a writer's career.
