4. Willie Roaf
The Louisiana Tech grad started his storied NFL career in 1993 before eventually coming to Kansas City before the 2002 season. The Chiefs acquired him from New Orleans via trade after Roaf suffered a season ending ACL tear during the previous season. Roaf went onto play only four years with KC, but made the most of his time at 1 Arrowhead Drive, making 4 Pro Bowl teams and becoming one of the driving forces behind one of the best rushing attacks in the league over those campaigns.
Roaf was ultimately awarded for all of his efforts as an NFL offensive lineman in 2012 when he was inducted into the league’s hall of fame in Canton. He is also highly regarded as one of the best offensive lineman and left tackles in NFL history, let alone the Chiefs franchise history. It’s unknown whether Willie will one day make the Chiefs HOF as well, but he should definitely be in strong consideration with all he did in his four years for the kingdom.
3. Ed Budde
Arguably the best left guard in franchise history, Budde manned the starting LG position for a ridiculous 14 seasons for KC. This is all without even mentioning that this might have never happened if he would have decided to play in the NFL originally for the Eagles, who selected him fourth overall in the league’s 1963 draft.
However, Budde went with Kansas City, who picked him first overall in the AFL Draft later that year. During his time in Kansas City, the ex-Michigan State Spartan was selected to 7 Pro Bowl teams along the way, including one in his rookie season of 1963. Budde was the team’s 1984 Hall of Fame selection as he was the second offensive lineman ever to be inducted into the Chiefs hall.
