Donald Driver, WR, 7th round (213th), 1999. A round that many teams consider a time for take-a-chance or throwaway picks turned into a bonanza for the Packers, who found their all-time leading receiver.
Sterling Sharpe, 1st round (7th), 1988 (right, with brother Shannon Sharpe left). Only the presence of Jerry Rice in the late 1980's and early 1990's stopped Sharpe from earning the title of the NFL's best receiver of his era. Only a neck injury in 1994 has stopped his resume from being, in the eyes of voters, Pro Football Hall of Fame-worthy. Someday, that may change.
LeRoy Butler, 2nd round (48th), 1990. Drafted before the arrival of Ron Wolf, Mike Holmgren, Brett Favre and Reggie White, it's arguable that Butler was the fifth critical cog of the Packers' rise from the ashes to their prominence in the 1990's. A four-time first-team All-Pro and four-time Pro Bowler, Butler has an argument for induction in Canton.
Clay Matthews, LB, 1st round (26th), 2009. The Packers traded up to get the son of Browns linebacker Clay Matthews. The team's all-time leader in sacks has had production wane recently after a rash of injuries, but he still has six Pro Bowls on his resume.
Tony Canadeo, 9nd round (77th), 1941. He has his number retired with Favre, Nitschke, Starr and White for a reason - a traiblazer at the halfback position. He was the Packers' first back to ever gain 1,000 yards (1949) while having other years among the NFL's best in passing yards and touchdown passes, kick returning and all-purpose yards, and was named as part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame's All-1940's team.
Jerry Kramer, 4th round (39th), 1958. Part of one of the greatest single-season draft classes in NFL history with Jim Taylor and Ray Nitschke, this five-time first-team All Pro finally gets his just due with induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August.
Jim Taylor, 2nd round (15th), 1962. Also a member of Jack Vainisi's incredible 1958 draft, Taylor became the ultimate embodiment of the savage NFL fullback, the 1962 NFL MVP and part of the only backfield in Super Bowl history with three members to make the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Dave Robinson, 1st round (14th), 1963. Vince Lombardi, ever the ultimate moral disciplinarian, was also a progressive racial trailblazer. He broke the unwritten NFL rule to not draft African-Americans in the first round in 1961 (Hall-of-Famer Herb Adderley) and again with Robinson. The man nicknamed "Robby" revolutionized the outside linebacker position, became one of the game's all-time best pass-coverage linebackers, and made the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Bart Starr, 17th round (200th), 1956 and Aaron Rodgers, 1st round (24th), 2005. We saved the best for last - two overlooked quarterbacks on draft day, nearly 50 years apart, who are currently the statistically highest rated postseason passer (Starr) and statistically highest-rated regular season passer (Rodgers) in NFL history. Oh yeah, Starr also shares the record for most championships by a quarterback (5), while Rodgers has re-written many other NFL records while raising the bar for quarterbacking to the stratosphere.
