10. Tyreek Hill
Draft Details: 5th round, 2016)
Key Stat: 7,349 yards from scrimmage since 2016
There’s a great story about the explosiveness of Tyreek Hill that comes from the New Orleans Saints. Then-head coach Sean Payton was asked to identify the most dangerous offensive weapon in the game. He turns to his quarterback Drew Brees and asks him to tell the reporter who asked, Peter King. Brees responds, “Tyreek Hill”, and Payton just nods in agreement.
Even on teams that rarely see him, Hill is well-known and highly-regarded as an offensive weapon without peers. He’s one of the fastest players to ever play the game, but his skill set only blossoms from there. He plays much bigger than his size, runs incredible routes, tracks the ball with the best of them, and is tough as nails.
Since 2016, only four players have more yards from scrimmage than Tyreek Hill—and all of them are running backs. He set the Chiefs franchise record for most receiving yards in a single season in 2018 with 1,479 and he was less than a season away from setting every new career mark in Chiefs history for a WR until he was traded to the Miami Dolphins.
Hill was only in Kansas City for six seasons, but they were the six most impactful seasons by an offensive weapon in franchise history.
