The Chiefs are unveiling top pick Patrick Mahomes in Denver on Sunday with their division title and fourth overall postseason seed secure, Andy Reid announced Wednesday. Kansas City has gotten hot of late en route to winning three straight games after losing six of the team's previous seven contests. Mahomes is known as a gunslinger and it's likely that Matt Nagy, the team's offensive coordinator and playcaller, will give him a chance to show off his arm against a challenging secondary employed by the Broncos-one that includes Aqib Talib and Chris Harris.

For his part, Smith finishes the regular season having put up a career-best performance. A two-year started while at Texas Tech, he declared for the National Football League after his true junior season.

Mr Robinson told KHON2: 'I had a younger brother that I lost when he was 19, so I never had nieces or nephews. A flawless match for his X chromosome came up with the name Robi737, who he also shared other DNA with.

"The biggest thing for me is just to expect to go out there and win any way possible, if that's 300 yards or 100 yards or whatever it is", Mahomes said. After all, the Chiefs traded up in the 1st round to draft him. There's no guarantee that ends up happening.

Well, it took a bit longer than the other two first-round quarterbacks of the 2017 class, but Mahomes is finally making his debut. But if Mahomes play well, it could make the Chiefs a little more comfortable in moving on from Smith this summer.
