Did you know KC Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson has been really, really good over the last 5 years?

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Name something better than someone gushing over Derrick Johnson. He deserves the praise he receives.

Head on over to Pro Football Focus where you''ll read comments like this about KC Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson:

  • "...the most well-rounded linebacker in the AFC..."
  • "...the culmination of year after year of solid play..."
  • "...seven forced fumbles which is the most at the position."

And my personal favorite: "...the AFC's best inside linebacker."

Pro Football Focus has a neat series looking at the best player at each position over the past five years. They have their grading scale and, despite the lack of a Jamaal Charles on their top 100 players list, they got it right naming DJ the third best linebacker in the NFL over the past five years.

Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali was named the sixth best edge rusher over the past five years.

Check out the top 10 at Pro Football Focus.
