With 24 hours until the 2020 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs are taking the time to celebrate arguably one of their best draft picks in recent time. On Wednesday, the official social media account posted an impressive hype video starring none other than quarterback Patrick Mahomes, chronicling the 24-year-old’s time at Texas Tech University to his most recent comeback performance at Super Bowl LIV.

Check out the video below:

Filled with jaw-dropping throws from his days as a Red Raider, the nearly two-minute video features number 15 tossing bomb after bomb as voices from analysts doubting his potential play in the background.

“This kid might not work out, I’ve seen this type before,” one unnamed analyst says.

As the video continues, it shows Mahomes’ reaction upon being selected number 10 overall by the Chiefs in the 2017 NFL Draft, with the then-rookie promising to take his game to the “next level” as a new member of this storied team.

The video continues by highlighting Mahomes’ incredible passes, from his left-handed lob to wide receiver Tyreek Hill to *that* side-arm pass he pulled off against the Baltimore Ravens we can’t stop thinking about. The footage ends with Mahomes gleaming as he lifts the Lombardi Trophy following Super Bowl LIV, celebrating the franchise’s first title in 50 years.

It’s an incredible piece that’s fitting for the hottest name in football. Not to mention, it’s indicative of the impact Mahomes has had on the Chiefs organization in his short, but already historic NFL career.

Did the Texans Almost Draft Mahomes?

It’s hard to imagine Mahomes not in the Kansas City red and white, but according to draft analyst Matt Miller, the Houston Texans were looking to draft Mahomes ahead of the Chiefs.

Much to the delight of Chiefs Kingdom, that deal never followed through. Houston worked out a deal with the Cleveland Browns and ultimately selected Deshaun Watson in the 12th round. While Watson is a star in his own right, many would agree that it feels right to see Mahomes throwing impeccable TD pass after TD pass at Arrowhead Stadium.

Mahomes Sends Well Wishes to Draft Prospect

Considering he’s been in a similar position, Mahomes took the time to wish former Texas Christian star Jalen Reagor best of luck in this weekend’s draft. The 21-year-old wide receiver has been linked to the Philadelphia Eagles, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants, Seattle Seahawks and several other franchises.

Reflecting on how far he’s come, Reagor tweeted Monday:

To which Mahomes responded:

Even if Reagor never puts on the Kansas City red and white, at least the Texas native has a vote of confidence from someone who not only prevailed the criticism, but also is shaping up to be one of the most desired players in the league.

The NFL Draft kicks off Thursday at 8:00 p.m. EST on ABC, ESPN and NFL Network.
