13. Derrick Johnson
Derrick Johnson played 182 Games in a Kansas City Chiefs uniform after being drafted 15th Overall in 2005.  The former Dick Butkus Award winner from the University of Texas did not start out flashy but for his first five seasons he was a dependable Outside Linebacker.  He would move to Inside Linebacker in the 2010 season and from 2010 to 2013 he would have minimum 100 Combined Tackles.  2011 would see him go to his first Pro Bowl and his first (and only)) First Team All Pro.  Johnson would repeat his appearance to the Pro Bowl in 2012 and 2013 and after an injury plagued season in 2014 he would have another 100 Tackle and Pro Bowl Season.  When it is all said and done, the chances are that Derrick Johnson won’t receive the overall due he should for his work in Kansas City but he was very good.
