Texas Tech QB Mahomes bypassing senior season for NFL draft

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes, the FBS leader with 5,052 yards passing this season, is bypassing his senior season for early entry in the NFL draft.

Mahomes announced his decision during a campus news conference Tuesday, saying he felt the time was right for him to pursue his dream of playing in the NFL. He said draft evaluators gave him a second-round grade.

"It was a tussle, I went back and forth a little bit," Mahomes said. "As December went on and I started to lean more and more toward the draft, it's kind of seemed like the right decision, and I believe it was."
