8. Jim Tyrer

Jim Tyrer was definitely the top Offensive Lineman for the Kansas City Chiefs throughout the 1960’s and there is a case to be made that he was among the top tier in the AFL.  Tyrer was a First Team AFL All Pro five times (and also a First Team All Pro twice) and a vital part of the O-Line that protected Len Dawson for years.   Notably he was also a seven time AFL All Star, a two time Pro Bowl winner and he was a part of three AFL Titles and the Super Bowl IV win.

14. Jim Tyrer

Out of all the people on this list we will say up front that there is zero chance that Jim Tyrer will get into the Football Hall of Fame.  Killing your wife and committing suicide there after is sadly what Tyrer is best known for and this has led to him being ostracized by the NFL.

Had Tyrer not broke down in his personal life, his on field accomplishments may have been enough to get him in to Canton.  He was arguably the best Offensive Lineman in the AFL, and was a multiple time AFL All star.  He was voted to the all time AFL team and was a big part of opening holes for Chiefs runners for years.  Tyrer may very well the best lineman that Kansas City ever had.
