The Greatest Draft Classes in Packer History

The Packers of today are known as one of the best drafting teams in the NFL. And while that hasn’t always been the case (*cough* Mandarich), they have been pretty successful when it comes to loading a team up with talent in a single year.

With the draft done, the undrafted free agents signed, and with rookie minicamp underway, now is the time to look back at the greatest Packers draft classes of all time. We’ll count down the Top 15 classes starting from the top.

#15         1950

Get started with a blast from the past. After the departure of Curly Lambeau the Packers needed new blood and they needed to start to change with the times. And that meant building up the middle at center at quarterback as they continued to learn the T-formation. QB Tobin Rote became a very good player in the 2nd round, one of the best dual threat QBs in early league history and first round pick Clayton Tonnemaker was awarded some sort of post season award every year he was in the league. Sadly, he only played from 1950-1954 seasons due to military service and then went into coaching.

#14         1992

Green Bay Packers 2016 Undrafted Rookies

Every year the Green Bay Packers seem to find a hidden treasure from their undrafted rookies. This year there are 21 players who didn’t hear their names called in the draft, who will fight to become the next Sam Shields, Jayrone Elliott, or Ladarius Gunter. One or two of these players may make the opening day roster, and we know several will make the practice squad.

Here are the players I believe have the best chance to succeed:

RB Don Jackson, Nevada

Jackson possesses decent size for the position and some surprising burst. His greatest asset may be that he is a patient runner who will wait for his blocks to set up. He could push John Crockett (another UDFA) for the 3rd Running Back position, but is more likely a Practice Squad candidate.

WR Geronimo Allison, Illinois

Allison has great size at 6’3 and 196 lbs, and combines that with an ability to go up and catch the ball. Allison’s good hands are somewhat offset by poor route running. With the logjam at Wide Receiver, Allison is a major underdog to make the roster, but would be the perfect player to put on the Practice Squad and develop slowly.

TE David Grinnage, North Carolina St

Dean Lowry Could Contribute Immediately on Defensive Line

The 2015 Green Bay Packers ranked 19th in the league in rushing defense, giving up 112.7 rushing yards per game. That was an improvement on their 2014 numbers (125.4 rushing yards per game) but it’s certainly an aspect of the defensive game that the Packers will attempt to further refine in 2016.

Enter Dean Lowry, the Packers’ 4th round draft choice, a defensive end out of Northwestern. Normally 4th round picks are not expected to contribute immediately but Lowry may have what it takes to see some significant playing time on the defensive line in his rookie season.

Lowry lined up everywhere from the 0 technique to a stand up outside linebacker in the Northwestern defense. In Green Bay he will likely play almost exclusively 5 technique defensive end where his job will be to maintain the outside edge against the run.

Lowry’s pass rushing skills leave a lot to be desired. He may never be a 3 down defensive end in the NFL, but he has the size, strength, and tackling skills to make a difference on 1st and 2nd down against the run, undoubtedly his greatest asset as an NFL lineman. He is a tenacious defender who fights hard on every play. He’s not an overly athletic or fast end, but he perfectly suits the needs of a 3-4 defense. Lowry has the ability to overpower his blocker and eat up any plays run toward the edge, as he showcased against Nebraska.
