Green Bay Packers - Best Number One Pick for Every Team in NFL Draft History

Considered by many as the greatest franchise in NFL history, the Packers are also the only team publicly owned. Their legacy and past players and coaches are legendary. The Super Bowl trophy is named after one of their former coaches. Vince Lombardi’s teams of the 1960s were some of the greatest ever and like Bill Belichick today, he got the most out of the least in his players. To name all the great first-round picks by Green Bay would be a long list. Picking just one is a very difficult task. With men like Aaron Rodgers, Willie Buchanon, Paul Hornung, Herb Adderley, Clay Matthews, Ron Kramer, and John Brockington just to name a few, most likely anyone in this discussion would be picking from that group. When push comes to shove, I’d cast my vote for Paul Horning just barely edging out Aaron Rodgers.

Honorable Mentions: James Lofton (1978), Eddie Lee Ivory (1979), Sterling Sharpe (1988), Ross Verba (1997), Bubba Franks (2000), B.J. Raji (2009), Bryan Bulaga (2010)
