Will Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes II go pro? Coach Kliff Kingsbury says if he gets a good draft grade, Mahomes should do what's best for his future. "If there's a high pick out there and that's where he's going to go and the money is right, then that's probably what he needs to do," Kingsbury said. "But if there's a way we can improve his draft stock and he can get his degree and come back and be better and learn more about the game, then that's what we'll do."
