2. WR Marquise Brown

Marquise "Hollywood" Brown is another player who could take his game to the next level with Mahomes throwing him the ball.

Drafted 25th overall by the Baltimore Ravens in 2019, Brown has had a solid NFL career thus far. He's tallied over 3,600 yards and 28 TDs across five seasons with his best performance coming with the Ravens in 2021 when he turned 91 receptions into 1,008 yards and six touchdowns.

Brown cashed in on his career year by signing with the Arizona Cardinals in 2022 but didn't come close to matching his personal best performance. Injuries played a role in those shortcomings as the Hollywood, FL native posted a 118-1,283-7 stat line in 26 games over two seasons with the Cardinals.

Having said that, joining the Chiefs could turn his career around. Mahomes has a cannon of an arm that would be the perfect match for Brown's blistering speed. Watching the duo connect would be quite the treat — especially if the veteran wideout can remain healthy.

Considering how Brown is only 26 years old, I wouldn't be shocked if playing with Mahomes would see him surpass his previous career highs.
