46. Jack Rudnay
Rudnay is long forgotten by most, but he should not be. Rudnay was on Kansas City for the entirety of his career spanning form 1969-82, although he was not able to play in his rookie campaign because of injury. In the 1970’s, only Mike Webster, a Hall of Fame center for the Pittsburgh Steelers, could be considered better at his craft.
Rudney was able to make four Pro Bowls and be named to the All-Pro teams in 1973, 1974, 1975 and 1979. Rudney was the anchor of a decent line for years that was overshadowed by a poor team around it. He was incducted into the team’s Hall of Fame in 1994.
45. Jerrel Wilson
Wilson was one of the first punters in FL of NFL history who was seen as a weapon. The three-time Pro Bowler was an integral part of the Chiefs winning Super Bowl IV in 1969 and found a spot on both the AFL Hall of Fame first-team of the 1960’s and the NFL Hall of Fame’s second-team for the 1970’s, behind Ray Guy.
Wilson was a fixture with Kansas City, staying with the club from 1963-77. He finished his career in 1978 with the New England Patriots. Wilson was also a strapping guy for a punter, weighing in at 222 pounds. He, along with Dustin Colquitt, are the greatest punters in team history.
