K James Hamrick 1987

James Hamrick played one season in the NFL after going undrafted out of Rice University.  He holds the distinction of never missing a kick in the NFL.  Of course that was two field goals and four extra points.

When we went over jersey #2, there were quite a few write in votes for Dustin Colquitt.  We didn't include him because the Chiefs jersey database only goes up to 2004.  This time, however, we're including Tyler Thigpen.
