5. Will Shields

The Kansas City Chiefs have had their share of great players on the Offensive Line, but there is one who stands above the rest; Will Shields.

A first ballot Pro Football Hall of Fame (in 2012) Will Shields started 223 of his 224 Games (all with Kansas City) Shields immediately was a force on the Offensive Line where he was the team’s starting Right Guard for fourteen seasons.  Shields holds the team record for Pro Bowls (12) and the 2000’s All-Decade Team Selection was also a two-time First Team All-Pro Selection.

Shields never missed a game in the NFL and he was also the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award winner in 2003.  The Chiefs inducted Shields into their Hall of Fame in 2015.

Again, while arguments could be made for other former Kansas City Chief players, it is equally easy to defend Shields in this spot.
