8 of 11

4. Clarke Hinkle

Clarke Hinkle is our number four player with the ability he brought alongside Arnie Herber  and Don Hutson. Hinkle played in Green Bay from 1932-41, which included two NFL Championships in 1936 and 1939. Though Hinkle was listed as a fullback he would be considered a running back in today’s NFL. His ability to help Herber and Hutson on the ground contributed to turning the Packers into a dynasty in the 1930s.

Hinkle is member of the NFL’s all decade team in the 1930s while also being named to the NFL’s 75th Anniversary Team. He was elected to the Pro Bowl three times while being named to the All-Pro team four times.

Hinkle is a member of the Packers Hall of Fame while also being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1964.

His 3,860 career rushing yards rank seventh all-time for the Packers and his 35 career touchdowns rank him fourth all-time. It should also be noted that Hinkle retired as the NFL’s all-time leader in rushing yards.
