After a standout season where Mahomes threw 5,097 yards and 50 touchdowns, it probably wasn’t a hard pick for the Madden team to make. In an interview with ESPN’s The Undefeated, Mahomes said he dreamed of one day being on the cover of Madden. He said, “When you’re a little kid, you dream of being on the cover of Madden … having your picture up there.”
