Who are the Kansas City Chiefs top five receivers of all time?

Throughout the history of the Kansas City Chiefs franchise, Chiefs Kingdom has had the privilege of watching some talented offenses. The 1960s had Len Dawson, Abner Haynes and Otis Taylor. The 2000s had Trent Green, Tony Gonzalez, and Priest Holmes. The 2010s had Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, and Travis Kelce.

The current Chiefs arguably have the best receiving corps that the NFL has seen in quite some time. There are mismatches everywhere. Travis Kelce is simply too big and strong for safeties and corners and too athletic for the typical linebacker. Tyreek Hill is in a league all his own when it comes to speed. Few players in the history of the NFL have the type of speed and quickness that he possesses.

The list goes on and on. I haven’t even mentioned Sammy Watkins, who when healthy has the talent to be a top receiver. Mecole Hardman had an impressive rookie season and looks to become more a part of the offense in his second year, a scary thought for the rest of the NFL.

So, for Chiefs Kingdom, as we revel in the glory of a Super Bowl victory and the exploits of our favorite players on the gridiron I thought it would be fun to take a trip back through franchise history. Here is the definitive list of the five greatest receivers to ever don the red and gold.
