Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson is returning for his senior season in Ann Arbor, which means he won't be headed to the NFL until 2020. ESPN, during the first quarter of the Peach Bowl, had an interesting segment on Patterson's NFL comp.

Announcers Bob Wischusen and Brock Huard commented on a segment that compared Patterson to Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

To say it's going over well would be a lie. While Patterson moves well like Mahomes, it's a stretch to suggest the two are similar caliber players. Mahomes was a first round pick who has turned into a star.

Patterson has a long way to go to even be drafted in the first few rounds.

Here's a sampling of what's out there:

Patterson, in his junior season, threw for 2,364 yards and 21 touchdowns against five interceptions. He transferred in from Ole Miss a year ago.

Michigan is taking on Florida in the Peach Bowl on Saturday. A win would give the Wolverines an 11-2 record on the year.
