Surely it’s old news by now that the 2014 NFL Draft is just a few weeks away. While the excitement of drafting new players is understandable, it’s also understandable to be excited talking about past drafts.

One such draft that the Kansas City Chiefs did not have much luck in was in 2009. Many fans have dubbed 2009′s draft class as one of the worst in recent years… and it’s only been five years since it occurred.

Only one player drafted in 2009 is still on Kansas City’s roster. Can you guess who it is?

With the third overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs selected Tyson Jackson. Jackson played defensive end at LSU and was a bit of a shocking pick for fans. Jackson honestly never did much in Kansas City. He wasn’t necessarily a bust per say, but he never wowed the fans.

Jackson played for five seasons in Kansas City totaling 137 tackles and nine sacks. He played in 74 games and started 55 of those. Jackson recently signed a hefty five year contract with the Atlanta Falcons, worth $25 million.
