Counting 21: John Alt to Sylvester Morris
By Josh Looney

Posted Mar 17, 2011

aaFrom a franchise Hall of Famer to an injury-plagued bust, Kansas City's history selecting at pick number 21 doesn't run deep



John Alt: Selected 21st overall in 1984


Whether it’s an offensive lineman, defensive lineman or skill position, somebody among this year’s pool of draft-eligible players will become the initial member Kansas City’s 2011 Draft Class this April. If no trades are made, the selection will come with the 21st overall pick, marking just the fifth time in team history that the Chiefs have selected from that position.

Kansas City’s brief history with #21 brings results that span across the board. Each of the five selections has been used on an offensive player, but that’s where the similarities between picks end. When it comes to on-field production, the small sample size has produced Hall of Fame performers, injury-plagued busts and what fills between.

One wide receiver, two running backs and an offensive tackle make up the Chiefs history at pick #21. Let’s flashback and grade them all.

2000 – Chiefs select WR Sylvester Morris (Jackson State) with the 21st overall selection

1991 – Chiefs select RB Harvey Williams (LSU) with the 21st overall selection

1984 – Chiefs select T John Alt (Iowa) with the 21st overall selection

*1965 – Chiefs select FB Mike Curtis (Duke) with the 21st overall selection

*AFL Draft/not a first-round choice

I'd be OK with another John Alt but we need a WR with the potential Sly Mo had.

NFL and AFL drafts, pre-merger.

Bowlegged WRs dont have much potential in todays NFL. IMO

But would be a natural fit to ride the horse around the stadium.

Is that true? I thought he was always bowlegged. Did he injure both knees?

I remember his 3 TD game. I was thinking we had us something. Then nothing after that.
