Of this year's three first-round rookie quarterbacks, Kansas City's Patrick Mahomes will nearly certainly have the longest wait before he gets a crack at the starting job, for the simple reason that he has the most established starter ahead of him in Alex Smith. Ironically, Mahomes' debut will be somewhat similar to when he played his first game at Texas Tech.
Mahomes is the first quarterback the Chiefs have selected in the first round since Todd Blackledge in 1983. Six plays later, he whiffed on an open-field, third-down tackle that would have prevented a first down. He was a starter and admitted to putting too much pressure on himself. A better Smith gives this year's team a higher ceiling, perhaps one that can reach the AFC Championship Game or better, and it would be beneficial for Mahomes to watch a serious, respected pro like Smith do his thing for a full season.
Tonight officially marks the start of the Kyle Shanahan/John Lynch era in Santa Clara, although the two have been hard at work trying to resurrect the team from an abysmal 2-14 season a year ago. "But it's a different place, and I think that's a positive for him".

"Right now it's getting acclimated to the receivers you have and the speed you have out there", Mahomes said. With CBS All Access, you get access to everything that airs on CBS. As the deeper team, the Chiefs won't see many rookies in the game until the second half, specifically quarterback Patrick Mahomes in the third quarter. And Mahomes also has had the added benefit of going against the Chiefs No. 1 defense.
That is, Shanahan and company still have plenty of time to clean up the messes after a game in which they committed 17 penalties (131 yards) and had a field-goal attempt and a punt blocked. Yes, technically, it's preseason football, but it's meaningful football all the same. "I'd get to stand on the sidelines", said Bell.
