The KC Chiefs have had some fantastic picks in the third round of the NFL Draft in years past. Who have been the 15 best ever?
The Kansas City Chiefs are currently without their third round pick for the 2016 NFL Draft due to tampering during free agency last offseason. Not having a third round draft pick hurts any time, but it especially hurts the Chiefs, who have had a large amount of success in round three over the years.
A few recent big names to come out of round three for Kansas City are guys like Jamaal Charles, Justin Houston, and Travis Kelce. All three of these guys have become icons in KC Chiefs history, and it’s tough to swallow that pill of not having a third rounder this year.
Those are just three of the big names to come out of the third round of the draft. Who else has there been? Who are the best ever?
Some of these names might not be the most recognizable, but make no mistake, they were great players for the Chiefs.
This list was compiled with the help of career stats, tenure with the Chiefs, and their legacy on Chiefs Kingdom. There is one Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee on this list. Can you guess who?
