Iowa State’s Mike Rose chose Chiefs for an opportunity that he now aims to seize | yahoo
The former Iowa State Cyclone is a two-time First-Team All-Big 12 winner and earned Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year honors en route to the Big 12 title game in 2020. His 41 career tackles for loss rank second in school history and he led all FBS linebackers in interceptions just this past season.
Rose certainly wasn’t expecting to go undrafted, but he’s out to take full advantage of the opportunity that lies ahead with the Kansas City Chiefs.
The 40-yard dash was a point in the pre-draft process where Isiah Pacheco truly turned some heads. His explosive and blazing run in Indianapolis was definitely something that caught some people off guard. In fact, his 40-yard dash time of 4.37 seconds was tied with South Dakota State’s Pierre Strong for the fastest 40-yard dash time among running backs at the 2022 NFL Scouting Combine.
Bills QB Josh Allen opens up about friendship with Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes | usatoday
“I mean, we were both at Miami this weekend at F1,” Allen began. “We were texting to see if we were (both) there Saturday night.

I’ve spent a couple of times around Patrick (Mahomes), but every time I’m around him, he’s just a great dude. He’s a great personality; he’s fun to be around. And obviously, all the respect that I have from on the field, I think it’s a different vibe than what people think.”
You don’t have to teach Pat”: Andy Reid reveals that he told Alex Smith to not mentor Patrick Mahomes | firstsportz
“I told Alex, ‘Man, go out and have the greatest year you’ve ever had, and you don’t have to teach Pat, we’re here to do that as coaches, you’re out there to go produce and win games and do the best you possibly can for your team.’ And so that’s the way we approached it with him.”
“Now Alex, by nature, though, was the greatest thing that ever happened to Pat Mahomes… Alex let Patrick into his world without being forced into it… So it worked out. I didn’t have to say a whole lot other than, ‘You go play and go win games, let’s go win a championship and do the best you possibly can do at the quarterback position.’ ” Reid told Colin Cowherd of Fox Sports earlier last week.
