67. Chiefs draft Tamba Hali (2006)

In 2006, the Kansas City Chiefs were hoping to find another piece to fix their aching defense. That side of the ball had long been the issue for a franchise that, at the time, had Priest Holmes, Tony Gonzalez, Willie Roaf, Brian Waters, Will Shields, and Trent Green on the offensive side. After taking Derrick Johnson out of the University of Texas in 2005 with their first-round selection, general manager Carl Peterson doubled down and selected defensive end Tamba Hali out of Penn State.

Hali had a slow start to his career, notching just 18.5 sacks over his first three seasons. In 2009, Hali was moved to outside linebacker and his career took off. Hali became a force of nature in 2010, leading the Chiefs to the AFC West title with 14.5 sacks, pacing the conference. It was the first of five straight Pro Bowl appearances for the star, who has 83 career sacks and is still going strong at 32 years old.
