The KC Chiefs have had some pretty great first round picks in their long franchised history. With the 2016 NFL Draft nearing, it’s time to take a look back at the 15 best first rounds picks for the Chiefs.
This is the time of year where people start talking about draft busts frequently, but what about the guys who excelled for their team? The Chiefs have had some pretty great picks, some of whom even spent their entire career in Kansas City.
The cool part about all of this is that some of the Chiefs’ best first round draft picks are still playing for Kansas City today. There are three of those guys on this list, and hopefully more are on the way in the coming years.
A lot was put into consideration when ranking these players. I looked at overall career accomplishments, how long the player was with the Chiefs, where the player ranks all-time at their position, whether or not they’re in either the Chiefs Hall of Fame or Pro Football Hall of Fame, and other factors.
All of these guys were fantastic NFL players, and hopefully those reading enjoy this list.
