Star quarterback Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs is already at the pinnacle of success, and the quarterback has now earned a spot on Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins‘ list of favorite quarterbacks.
Hopkins has played for the Texans and Cardinals throughout 10 seasons after being selected by the Houston Texans with the No. 27 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Who are the QBs DeAndre Hopkins love to play with?
In a recent episode of the well-known, “I Am Athlete” podcast, the Cardinals player named five people he wants to partner up with and receive the ball from. The name of his desired QB teammate are Joss Allen, Jalen Hurts, Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson, and Justin Herbert. The wide receiver put the two-time MVP in the third position of his list.
“I would have to say. One of my favorite quarterbacks that I’ve been watching since he came into the league is Josh Allen. Josh Allen reminds me of a new school Andrew Luck. I love Josh Allen. Jalen Hurts, he’s a Houston kid. He’s a dog, Jalen. Number three who I would love to have the ball thrown, Patrick Mahomes obviously. Number four, I’m gonna have to go with an underdog. Not a lot of people respect his guy but as a throwing quarterback, Lamar Jackson. I’m going to [also] have to go with my dude with the Chargers [Justin Herbert],” Hopkins added.
What led Hopkins to add Patrick Mahomes to his desired QB list?
Not just DeAndre, but many modern wide receivers will undoubtedly view the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback as a dominant and naturally gifted player given that he has a career record of success with the Chiefs of 80%, leading them to a Super Bowl victory recently, demonstrating the significance of the quarterback at the team’s center.
Being able to surpass Dan Marino as the fastest quarterback to reach 90 career touchdown passes with 91 career touchdowns in 37 games played makes him a shining star for the Patriots. In addition, he beat Kurt Warner’s record of 36 games by becoming the quarterback to reach 10,000 passing yards the fastest in just 34 games. Hopkins had the desire to play alongside the quarterback on the same team because of Patrick’s exceptional athletic prowess and astounding stats.
Although it is currently only a dream for Nuks to play alongside Mahomes on the same team, the wide receiver can still hold onto this hope as anything can happen in the NFL.
