While the first round of the NFL draft gets most of the attention, teams' ability to find successful players in the later rounds is often a key to their long-term success. The Green Bay Packers have done a good job in recent years of finding diamonds in the rough and developing them into productive NFL players.
Here is a look at the Packers' top 10 late-round draft steals since 1980. To be considered for this list, a player had to be selected in the fifth round or later by the Packers in the NFL draft.
Players are rated on a combination of how late they were selected in the draft and how productive they were during their stay with the team. A player's performance on other teams will not be considered for these rankings.
Feel free to comment on any of the players on this list or to mention anybody you feel deserves to be here but was omitted. As always, indicate why you feel the way you do.
