6. Will Shields

A member of the 2015 Hall of Fame class clearly belongs on this list, and gets a very nice spot. Shields has an impeccable resume, proving that he is one of the greatest right guards to ever play. Shields was incredibly consistent, breaking into the league as a third-round pick in 1993 out of Nebraska and playing at an All-Pro level until his retirement in 2006.

Shields got to take part in the most exciting Chiefs season since winning the Super Bowl in 1969 as a rookie, protecting Joe Montana as the team went to the AFC Championship game. Shields then was on teams in 1995 and 1997 that went 13-3 and had home-field advantage in the playoffs, only to fall drastically short.

Shields was a 12-time Pro Bowler, going every year of his illustrious career from 1995 on. Shields was a seven-time All-Pro and is a member of the NFL’s 2000 All-Decade team. Shields started in 223 consecutive games and was named to the Walter Peyton Man of the Year award in 2003, along with taking home the Ed Block Courage award in 2005.
