Patrick Mahomes II had the most passing yards last season. He played for the Texas Tech Red Raiders. He passed for 5,052 yards last season, as well as threw for 41 TDs vs. only 10 interceptions.

Patrick played for the Red Raiders for three seasons from 2014 to 2016. He has foregone his senior eligibility and will enter the 2017 NFL draft. Patrick started the last two seasons. He amassed 11,252 yards passing over his Tech career and rushed for 845 yards. He threw 93 TDs vs. 29 interceptions and ran for 22 TDs over his college career. He also played baseball in college, is the son of a former major league pitcher, and Patrick was drafted by the Detroit Tigers to play baseball, but Patrick did not sign.

Last season Ryan Higgins from Louisiana Tech finished in second for passing yards; Ryan threw for 4,617 yards (41 TDs and 8 INTs). National Championship Quarterback Deshaun Watson came in third; passing for 4,593 yards (41 TDs and 17 INTs). Interesting Deshaun Watson is projected to be picked in the 1st or 2nd round of the 2017 Draft, while Patrick Mahomes is projected to be picked in the 2nd or 3rd round, while Ryan Higgins is not project to even be drafted. (According to CBS Sports.)
