As the 2014 NFL Draft draws closer, the Kansas City Chiefs draft revisits continue on KC Kingdom. The Chiefs’ first round selection in 2006 has proven to be a dominant force on the defensive side of the ball and he continues to play with that same powerful style to this day.

With the 20th overall pick, the Kansas City Chiefs selected Tamba Hali out of Penn State. Hali has been a monster to opposing offenses. He has played in 125 games and started all of them. Hali has put up some great stats during his tenure in Kansas City including 348 tackles, 73.5 sacks, and 28 forced fumbles. He’s also had two interceptions and took one of those back for a touchdown (the latter happened last season actually).

Hali has been a shining star in Kansas City. While most fans hope that he stays a Chief, there have been rumors that he could get traded. That would be a shame because Hali has proved that he’s a big part of the Chiefs’ defense. When he went out with an injury in 2013, the defense suffered immensely.

Side note: 2006 was eight years ago, so some of these players aren’t in our photo gallery. That’s why you’ll see random pictures of other players on certain slides.
