29. Louie Kelcher

Louie Kelcher was a huge player for his day as a 6’ 5” Defensive Tackle, but the star at SMU was able to use his mass to the best of his ability.

Kelcher was a member of the Chargers for the bulk of his pro career, and the Defensive Tackle was a First Team All-Pro in 1978 and was also a three-time Second Team All-Pro.  The Defensive Tackle would be named to three Pro Bowls and was a huge part of the Chargers’ defense in the late 70s and early 80s.  

Kelcher was dealt to San Francisco, where he played one final year, winning the Super Bowl.  He was inducted into the Chargers Hall of Fame in 2003.
