Christian Okoye RB Ex-Kansas City Chiefs
Former Chiefs great Christian "The Nigerian Nightmare" Okoye joined the NFL in 1987 after being draft in the second round out of Azusa Pacific University. At the time he had only began playing football three years earlier and his first opinion of the game when he attended one was that it was "boring."
His best season came in 1989 when he rushed for 1,480 yards and 12 touchdowns. The two time pro bowler and one time All-Pro voluntarily ended his career due to injuries after only 6 years in the league. When he retired following the 1992 season, his 4,897 yards were best in Chiefs history.
