Marquez Valdes-Scantling is one of the better stories you will hear about in the NFL. The former 2018 fifth-round draft pick has made incredible strides throughout his career, won on the world's biggest sports stage, and signed a life-changing contract.
Pre-NFL Days For Marquez Valdes-Scantling
Marquez Valdes-Scantling was born on Oct. 10, 1994. He attended and played high school football at Lakewood High School in St. Petersburg, Fla. As a senior, he recorded 50 receptions for 800 receiving yards and 14 receiving touchdowns.
Valdes-Scantling attended two different colleges before being drafted into the NFL. The first was with the North Carolina State Wolfpack. During his two seasons there, he played in 16 games, recorded 44 receptions, 538 receiving yards, and one touchdown.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling Joins The NFL & Breaks Out
Marquez Valdes-Scantling was drafted by the Green Bay Packers with the 174th overall pick in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He would spend his first four years in the league playing for the Green and Gold. During those four years, he averaged 15 games played per season, starting just shy of 10. He also averaged over 30 receptions, 538 receiving yards, and just over three touchdowns per year.
Following the 2021 season, he tested free agency, which paid off big time. The Kansas City Chiefs would sign him to a massive three-year $30 million dollar contract with $15 million guaranteed – an incredible payday for a former fifth-round pick.
In 2022, Marquez Valdes-Scantling recorded 42 receptions, 687 receiving yards, and three touchdowns. He also showed up big-time during the 2022-23 playoffs, recording seven receptions, 122 receiving yards, and two touchdowns in three games.
