38: Chiefs draft Bobby Bell (1963)

Hall of Fame linebackers are something Kansas City seems to churn out, and there are few that can compete with the greatness of Bobby Bell. From 1964-1972, Bell was consistently regarded as one of the best players in the league. Bell is one of the all-time Chiefs greats and one of the few to have his number (#78) retired by the organization.

Yet here is what is truly amazing about the Chiefs drafting Bobby Bell…he was a seventh-round pick in the 1963 AFL Draft. Not only that, he was a seventh-round pick in the same year that the Minnesota Vikings would draft him in the second round of the NFL Draft! Not only did the Chiefs get some great value on a future Hall of Famer, they would do it in the face of the team they would eventually defeat in Super Bowl IV.

The Chiefs teams of the 60s remain some of the greatest in history. It’s a statement of fact about the greatness of a franchise that largely dominated for a whole decade. Bell was a major part of that group.
