42. Chiefs draft Justin Houston (2011)

In 2011, the Kansas City Chiefs were coming off an AFC West title but needed to fill some holes. There was plenty of talk about adding another receiver to complement Dwayne Bowe, who was coming off a Pro Bowl campaign. Meanwhile, others were hoping that Kansas City would land an outside linebacker to help take some of the pressure off Tamba Hali.

The result was interesting. In the first round, Kansas City traded back with the Cleveland Browns, picking up an extra third-round pick. The Chiefs took receiver Jonathan Baldwin in the first round, who turned out to be a massive disappointment. However, the Chiefs took the extra third-round selection and took Justin Houston, once projected as a top-20 player but who fell because of a failed drug test.

Houston has been one of the best players in football since that moment, making three Pro Bowls and proving to be a force against both the run and pass.
