Green Bay Packers: Top 10 Running Backs of All Time
10. Donny Anderson
Donny Anderson had one of the hardest tasks in Packers history in replacing two hall of fame running backs who are further on our list. Vince Lombardi had a system of a two running back scheme which Anderson and Jim Grabowski, who were both high touted draft picks in the 1966 NFL Draft, filled nicely.
One of the greatest plays Anderson is remembered for is knocking out Fred Williamson of the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl I. One of the cooler features from Anderson was also the fact he was a punter and really started the idea of “hang time” you see in the NFL today.
Anderson played from 1966-71 and won two Super Bowls with the Packers in his first two seasons. He currently sits 11th on the Packers all-time list in rushing with 3,165 yards and 13th in touchdowns with 24.
He was also elected to the Pro Bowl once during his career. What Anderson did for the team learning under two hall of fame running backs and then transitioning into a featured player ranks him 10th on our all time list.<!—pageview_candidate—>
