2002 | John Alt | Offensive Tackle


Alt the "Monumental Minnesotan" anchored Kansas City's offensive line for 13 seasons from his left tackle post. The stoic standard-bearer by which all future Kansas City left tackles will be judged. Played a prodigious part in the resurgence of the Chiefs franchise in the '90s. Jim Tyrer (180) was the only offensive lineman in team history to play in more games than Alt (179). Started 149 of those games and owns a share of a franchise record by making 10 career playoff appearances, including the '93 AFC Championship Game. Earned back-to-back Pro Bowl trips following the '92 and '93 seasons. An All-Pro pick in '90-91. A prolific pass protector, also helped Kansas City perennially produce some of the best rushing numbers in the '90s. The Chiefs led the NFL in rushing for the first time in team history in '95 and produced five top 10 finishes during his tenure. Wore jersey number 76. Was a first round draft choice out of Iowa in '84, the third offensive lineman selected overall. Born May 30, 1962 in Stuttgart, Germany.
