Chiefs' Legend Dante Hall to Announce Third-Round Pick at the NFL Draft

Hall is one of the top players in Chiefs’ history, and in just a few weeks, he’ll welcome in a new member to Chiefs Kingdom

The guy is responsible for some of the most electric plays in NFL history, and in just three weeks, Dante Hall will announce one of the newest members of the Kansas City Chiefs.

"The Human Joystick" was a human highlight reel during his time in Kansas City, returning 12 total kicks for touchdowns over seven seasons. Hall put together the bulk of that production during a remarkable stretch between 2002-03, finding the end zone seven times in just 10 games.

There was the 100-yard kickoff return against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the 97-yard return against the Baltimore Ravens and, of course, the unforgettable return against the Denver Broncos that saw Hall retreat all the way back near the Chiefs' end zone before exploding for a 93-yard score.

That final touchdown marked Hall's fourth-consecutive game with a score, setting an NFL record.

Kansas City Chiefs kick returner Dante Hall (82) runs into the end zone for a touchdown during a 2005 home game.

He's among the top players to ever suit up for Kansas City, and all these years later, he's been tasked with reading the Chiefs' third-round selection at the NFL Draft.

"I'm both excited and honored [for this opportunity]," Hall said on Friday.

Hall is one of several NFL Legends that will be representing various teams at the Draft later this month, and the list could grow even more as the Draft approaches.
