Patrick Mahomes has laid the blueprint for what the modern NFL quarterback should be like.
Needless to say, finding the next Mahomes is going to be a complicated task, granted that he’s perhaps the most talented quarterback in the history of the league.
Nonetheless, that doesn’t mean scouts won’t work tirelessly to get their hands on players with a similar game and approach.
That’s why all eyes have been on USC star Caleb Williams, who’s often drawn comparisons to the Kansas City Chiefs star.
However, Williams isn’t so sure about those comps.
As he said on Slow News Days (via Kevin Clark), he takes the comparisons as a big sign of respect because he’s worked quite hard to get better every single day, but they’re not even in the same stratosphere right now.

Williams praised Mahomes as the main guy in the league since he became a starter, adding that he already has two Super Bowls under his belt, while he doesn’t even have a National Championship.
The Trojans standout is coming off a remarkable campaign, winning the Heisman trophy in his first season with the Trojans after a one-year tenure with the Oklahoma Sooners.
He’s a dual-threat QB with a cannon for an arm, and a guy who can excel after extending plays — just like Mahomes.
But even though he’s projected to be a top-3 pick in the next NFL Draft, he’s still got a ways to go before sitting at Mahomes’ table, assuming he’ll ever reach that level.NEXT: Nick Wright Highlights Differences Between Two Big NFL And NBA Fights
