With only three games left to end the 2021-222 NFL season, the Pro Football Writers of America, known as PFWA, have compiled their annual “All-Rookie” team Tuesday.

And while Dallas Cowboys’ LB Micah Parsons was selected as the 2021 Rookie and Defensive Rookie of the year, and Cincinnati Bengals’ WR Ja’Marr Chase was selected as the Offensive Rookie of the year, three Kansas City Chiefs players landed on the squad: center Creed Humphrey, guard Trey Smith and linebacker Nick Bolton.

Here’s the full All-Rookie honors from PFWA:

Nick Bolton’s performance in Sunday’s victory against the Buffalo Bills was indispensable to Kansas City. The 21-year-old recorded two defensive stops on short third-down rushes that allowed for a pair of punts.

The Chiefs acquired Bolton with the No. 58 overall pick last year straight out of the University of Missouri.

Creed Humphrey and Trey Smith, meanwhile, were two of the best interior offensive lineman in the 2021 season. As per Pro Football Focus, Humphrey was the fifth-best offensive lineman overall this year, and the top center in the league. Moreover, Smith was graded as the No. 11 overall guard in the NFL.

Kansas City selected Smith with the No. 226 overall pick of the Draft.

All three rookies played a huge role in leading the Chiefs to their fourth-straight march to the AFC Championship Game, and will continue their hunt to another Trophy this Sunday.
