I fail to see how that's a problem. Then there's the offense he played in. Well he took snaps from center in practice and played a quick read system. That's...actually what Reid runs.

Why should we be worried about Mahomes again? He has a cannon, is ballsy and his footwork is not a concern. This seems like a no-brainer. He also seems dedicated and focused.
Having bad fundamentals can work in lower levels playing against lesser players but the higher you go the more they can be exploited. He played in a system it's easy to look accurate and where he exploited terrible defenses for a lot of yards. The majority of the air raid QBs have completion percentages of 65% and over, it's not because they're all the most accurate QBs ever, it's because of the system.

His mechanics are what worries me the most. It's not hard to see Mahomes in a Blake Bortles type situation where he's in his 4th year in the league and still working on his mechanics.
