Former LSU football running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire is now catching passes from Patrick Mahomes.
I imagine there are a lot of NFL players who are jealous of former LSU football running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire.
The former Tigers standout, who was selected in the No. 32 overall selection in the 2020 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs, went from playing with Joe Burrow in college to playing with Patrick Mahomes in the NFL.
Burrow might be the best college football quarterback ever. And Mahomes just signed a 10-year contract extension that could end up being worth north of $500 million.
Suffice it to say, Edwards-Helaire knows what good quarterback play looks like. Which is why it’s interesting to hear his thoughts on how Burrow and Mahomes are similar.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire compares Joe Burrow and Patrick Mahomes
Edwards-Helaire recently spoke with FanSided’s Mark Carman and was asked about the similarities between Burrow and Mahomes.
Unsurprisingly, Edwards-Helaire believes Burrow and Mahomes have a lot in common — specifically the way they stay composed during games.
“Composure. Two guys who have been in some pressure moments and they know that they are the guys. They know they have to make a play,” explained Edwards-Helaire.
“They always seem like they’re just chilling. In the huddle or during the game. The way they carry themselves…Ultimately I’m grateful I’ve been able to be around two guys like that. ”
I think most folks would agree with Edwards-Helaire’s assessment. Burrow and Mahomes both have the “it” factor and the “cool” factor. Nothing ever seems to bother either one.
That’s a big reason both quarterbacks have been so successful. It’s more than just physical abilities, it’s the ability to lead in the midst of complete chaos. And that’s an area where both excel.
