Through the leadership of the former Texas Tech standout, the team has made it to four consecutive AFC Championship Games and two straight Super Bowls.
Mahomes also went on to become the Most Valuable Player of the league and of Super Bowl LIV.
They also became the AFC’s second seed last season despite struggling early in their campaign.
While there’s no denying that he will remain one of the league’s elite play-callers, it didn’t look like he would become the next great quarterback after an average performance during his NFL Scouting Combine.

Ridder finished in 4.49 seconds while Mariota was at 4.52.
Wilson clocked in at 4.55 seconds and Mahomes was the worst of the four at 4.8 seconds.
Having watched this video again, Mahomes used his Twitter account to comment on the clip.
The Combine Isn’t A Definitive Predictor Of A Prospect’s Career
Mahomes took the video lightly by saying, “Y’all didn’t have to put me in that group getting left like that.
Hard work and dedication are still the keys to becoming a successful NFL player.
That said, the Combine can also miss out on players who had great careers despite registering dismal performances.
Of course, the NFL did the video not to insult Mahomes but as a point of comparison.
But he must look past the ridicule because he’s only one of a handful of active quarterbacks that has a Super Bowl ring.
With they way his career unfolded, it’s the other quarterbacks who are envious of his success.
