Peterman is such a prototypical WCO type of QB that I just have this feeling that is who KC will draft. When I first looked at all the QBs in this draft I had that feeling that "this is a perfect Andy Reid fit." He's accurate, he can make the throws, he anticipates routes coming open, he's smart with the football, he's mobile. He just has alot to like. He doesn't have the ceiling like some others, I think more because of arm strength than anything. If he cleans up his throwing base and increases his core strength, maybe he increases that zip on the ball ala Brees.

I think on KC's draft board, Peterman is a very real possibility in round 1.

I love the upside of Mahomes, but he comes with much more risk. Dorsey and Reid both saw risk in GB with a young Brett Favre and I'd be willing to bet they see the same type of player in Mahomes.

That said, they went with ultra-safe in Alex Smith when they came here and the QBs they've drafted to this point were generally pretty safe college players. Peterman is the safest QB in the draft.

Given the choice, I'd draft Mahomes and hope my coaches could fix his issues because that kind of arm and playmaking ability is hard to find. If not, I wouldn't hesitate a bit to take Peterman, and I might take him over Kizer even though I do like Kizer.
