KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The relationship between Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Texans counterpart Deshaun Watson goes back well beyond the 2017 draft, when along with Mitchell Trubisky they were considered among the best prospects at their position.

It goes back to their college days, when Mahomes was orchestrating the “Air Raid” offense at Texas Tech and Watson was trying to navigate Clemson to a national championship.

“I think we were going into our junior year,” Mahomes recalled, “and we went to a QB camp out in California. I talked to him, back and forth, about how he did his stuff at Clemson, how I did my stuff at Texas Tech. He’s a great player. We kind of hit it off.”
