1. Willie Roaf, OT

Throughout this list, you have heard about the historic offensive line during the Dick Vermeil era. Willie Roaf was a big part of that strong offensive line.

Lining up beside Pro Bowler Brian Waters, Roaf made it nearly impossible for pass rushers to get by him. The offensive line was a big reason for the Chiefs leading the NFL in points scored in 2002 and 2003 while leading the AFC in total yards in 2003 and leading the NFL in the same category in 2004 and 2005.

Roaf played only four seasons in Kansas City. However, he was the best player at his position while a member of the Chiefs. He was an All-Pro and Pro Bowler during all four of his years in Kansas City. Roaf was also named to the 2000’s NFL All-Decade Team, spending most of that decade in Kansas City. He was also named to the 1990’s All-Decade Team.

In his illustrious career, Roaf has 11 Pro Bowls and nine All-Pro honors. All four of his All-Pros in Kansas City were part of the First Team. Roaf’s name was one of the first to sit in the Saints Ring of Honor. It’s time he earns that distinction in Kansas City.
