Number 5: Brian Waters

Brian Waters began his career with the Dallas Cowboys, after they signed him as an undrafted rookie free agent in 1999. He was originally a TE, trying to make the team, but was later released during the Cowboys training camp. In came the Chiefs for the signing, and the rest is history.

Signing Waters as more of a project player, the Chiefs had no idea that he would blossom into one of the best guards in that generation of football. Waters played in Kansas City for 11 years, turning in 5 pro-bowl selections and a 2009, Walter Payton Man Of The Year award.

He is also the only guard in the AFC to ever win offensive player of the week when he did so in 2004 after the Chiefs crushed the Atlanta Falcons. The Chiefs scored 8 rushing touchdowns that day and Brian Waters absolutely dominated everyone that was in the way.

Waters was released by Kansas City on July 28th, 2011, marking the end of an excellent 11 years in Kansas City. Waters should eventually join the Chiefs hall of fame, and possibly the Pro Football Hall Of Fame one day. He makes the list at number five.
