Make that two more Chiefs in the "NFL Top 100."

For those who don't know, the "NFL Top 100" is a program on the NFL Network that ranks the best 100 players in the league as voted upon by the players. Last week, wide receiver Jeremy Maclin was announced at No. 93 and tight end Travis Kelce was announced at No. 91.

This week, linebacker Tamba Hali was revealed at No. 84 and quarterback Alex Smith was revealed at No. 81.


Since 2011, the show's debut, Hali has now been named to the "NFL Top 100" five of six times.

Last season, Hali had 6.5 sacks and 48 tackles (39 solo), playing a key role in the absence of Justin Houston.


2016 marks the first year that Smith has made the "NFL Top 100."

Many would regard 2015 at the best season of Smith's 11-year NFL career, when he went 307 of 470 for 20 touchdowns and just 7 interceptions. Smith also used his feet more in 2015, rushing for 498 yards with 2 touchdowns.
