Jeremy Maclin

Former Philadelphia Eagles wideout Jeremy Maclin could prove to be dangerous with Alex Smith at quarterback and being back with his old coach, Andy Reid. Reid drafted Maclin back in 2009. In his 6 year career there, he amassed 4771 receiving yards and scored 36 touchdowns, despite missing the entire 2013 season with a torn ACL.

Kansas City has needed a big threat receiver and it looks like they have found it in Maclin. If Smith can make connections with Maclin, he could be a very dangerous receiver in that secondary. He has a knack for finding that first down marker when its most needed and will push for it. He must be stood up and stopped as soon as he touches the ball.
