Exclusive: Andy Reid, Patrick Mahomes trust Brett Veach and staff to execute the draft



“Brett heads this whole thing up,” head coach Andy Reid told reporters during a Zoom call on Monday, “and does a nice job with making sure he has all the rounds covered. There is a tremendous amount of input that goes into this first-round pick.


“However, there’s like a 50% success rate over a five-year period for these first-round picks; it’s a bit crazy for all the time spent doing them. So you have to make sure you cover the other parts of the draft — all the way to the point where your college free agents almost become your second-highest percentage to make it on these teams over that five-year span.”
