Kansas City acquired the pick from the Buffalo Bills. Buffalo gets the No. 27 pick in the first round and a third round pick (No. 91 overall) in this year's draft, along with Kansas City's first round pick in the 2018 draft in return.
Mahomes is now the quarterback of the future for the Chiefs. Kansas City plans to allow him to develop for a year or two behind Alex Smith, but he will eventually take over for Smith.
At Texas Tech last year, Mahomes passed for 5,052 yards with 41 touchdowns and 10 interceptions last season while also rushing for 285 yards and 12 more scores.
