The Kansas City Chiefs are in the thick of the NFL offseason with Tuesday marking the start of the team's third and final organized team activity (OTA) sessions. It's the last chance that the coaching staff will have to get a good look at the 90-man roster before the mandatory minicamp opens on June 11.

While certain players haven't shown much during OTAs, others have capitalized on every opportunity they've seen. If certain standout individuals can continue to impress the coaches, media, and fans alike, there's a decent chance that they could see meaningful playing time come September.

With that in mind, here are eight Chiefs whose stock is on the rise heading into next week's mandatory minicamp.

1. Marquise Brown, WR

One of the Chiefs' biggest offseason moves saw them sign veteran wideout Marquise Brown to a one-year worth up to $11 million. Nicknamed "Hollywood," Brown was brought in to provide Patrick Mahomes with a potential No. 1 wideout that he hasn't had since Tyreek Hill left town.

Fortunately, it hasn't taken Brown long to fit in with his new team. The former 1,000-yard WR has looked great tracking deep balls — something Kansas City struggled with last season — throughout OTAs and has even earned praise from Mahomes, who's had to remind the Chiefs' defenders that Brown "can really go."

Offensive coordinator Matt Nagy has even sung Brown's praises, gushing about how well the latter has tracked deep balls this spring. That's the type of compliment that Chiefs fans love to hear for the newcomer, especially considering how Rashee Rice's playing future is up in the air.

Brown hasn't hit the 1,000-yard mark since 2021, leaving time to tell if linking up with Mahomes changes that trend. The 27-year-old playmaker's arrival to Kansas City has gone swimmingly thus far, so let's hope that he can bring that momentum into the mandatory minicamps and beyond.

After all, the Chiefs' chances of a three-peat could hinge on the Mahomes-Brown connection this season.
