How comfortable are you with the 49ers drafting QB Patrick Mahomes?

Time to figure out people’s confidence level with Patrick Mahomes.

The San Francisco 49ers have some options in front of them if they want to draft a quarterback. With the Cleveland Browns expected to select Texas A&M pass rusher Myles Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick, the 49ers could pick any quarterback they wanted at No. 2, if they were so inclined.

Of course, most of the quarterbacks in this year’s class are not going to be ranked that high. And it is entirely possible none of them will be at the top of the 49ers draft board when they go on the clock in just over three weeks.

Rather than do a traditional ranking of quarterbacks here, I thought it would be fun to try something different. Rather than have everyone rank the draft eligible QBs, I’d like people to vote on how high they would draft a given QB.

We started with Mitchell Trubisky (here), and then moved on to DeShaun Watson (here). I’m going to compile all of them together and then post rankings based on that.

Today, we move on to Texas Tech’s Patrick Mahomes. Maybe you think he has what it takes to be a franchise quarterback, and is worth the No. 2 pick. Maybe you think he has the skills but there are enough questions that would rather wait. It is unlikely he will be there at No. 34 or any later pick, but maybe your own comfort level is just not as high as No. 2 overall.

I’ve attached a poll that includes all ten of the 49ers draft picks, plus an option for just not drafting him at all. You might just think he does not have what it takes and is not worth investing any draft capital. I did not include “trade up” or “trade down” so as to keep this fairly simple.

I don’t know how this polling will work out, but I wanted to try something a little bit different. With that in mind, what is the highest pick with which you would be comfortable drafting Patrick Mahomes?
