These guys are still in the NFL, but they've already sealed a place in the Packers Hall of Fame.
Driver is the Packers all-time leader in career receiving yards and receptions, and he’s six touchdown receptions behind Sterling Sharpe for second place on that list. Plus, he’s the only Packer to take home the Dancing with the Stars championship.
He’s only been a starter for four seasons, but Rodgers has done so much it would be impossible to deny him into the Packers Hall of Fame if he decided to call it quits tomorrow. He’s already won an MVP and Super Bowl MVP, he broke the Packers record for passing yards and touchdowns in a season and he holds the NFL record for career passer rating by a wide margin.
Thompson has quickly established himself as one of the league’s best general managers. He was the one who decided to draft Aaron Rodgers and hire Mike McCarthy, and he has drafted or signed many other gems in his short tenure, including Nick Collins, Greg Jennings, Charles Woodson and Ryan Grant.
Although Woodson played eight seasons in Oakland and only six in Green Bay so far, his play overall has been much better with the Packers. Throughout his career, 37 of his 54 interceptions, 10 of his 12 defensive touchdowns, 10 of his 15.5 sacks, 94 of his 130 deflected passes and his only Defensive Player of the Year award have all come while wearing the green and gold.
Just as Gbaja-Biamila was declining in play, Kampman became the Packers’ next premier pass rusher. He appeared in back-to-back Pro Bowls and finished his Green Bay career as the team’s fourth-most accomplished sacker.
He’s proved how well he works with quarterbacks by producing Aaron Rodgers and Matt Flynn, and he’s already won the same number of Super Bowls as Mike Holmgren.
If you don’t count 2010, in which he only rushed the ball eight times, Ryan Grant has only been a running back for the Packers for four years. Still, he’s managed to rush for the fifth most yards in the team’s history, putting him ahead of Paul Hornung, Dorsey Levens, Edgar Bennett and other running backs already in the Packers Hall of Fame.
Kickers rarely get recognition, but Longwell is deserving. His 1054 career points and 81.6 percent field goal success rate as a Packer both rank first in the team’s history. The next closest to his career points is Don Hutson, who is way behind with 823.
