Green Bay Packers: Top 10 Running Backs of All Time

6 of 11

6. John Brockington

The Green Bay Packers selected a kid from Ohio State in the first round of the 1971 draft named John Brockington.

Brockington was slated to take over the running back position from Donny Anderson upon entering the NFL and he did exactly that. Brockington became the first player ever to rush for 1,000 yards in his first three seasons. His dominance upon entering the league earned him both three All-Pro and Pro Bowl selections in 1971, 1972, and 1973.

Brockington played in Green Bay from 1971-77 and was a serious threat in the backfield in the beginning of his career. Unfortunately Brockington slowed down tremendously after his first three seasons as he was an absolute workhorse for the team. He ranks third all-time in attempts and rushing yards in Packers history and sixth all-time in career touchdowns.
