Green Bay Packers: Top 10 defensive linemen of all time

2 of 11

10. Santana Dotson

Often the forgotten man during the Packers mid-’90s dominance, Dotson played a key role on the Packers defense and helped Green Bay get to back-to-back Super Bowls in 1996 and 1997.

In six years in Green Bay (’96-’01), Dotson started 83 of his 88 games and recorded 268 tackles and 26 sacks, which was the second most of any defensive tackle in franchise history. Dotson also registered a sack in Super Bowl XXXI.

Dotson may not have had the flash of more notable teammates, like Reggie White or Gilbert Brown, but the 6-foot-5, 287-pound defensive tackle was a reliable interior pass rusher, recording 5.5 sacks in each Super Bowl season, and a gritty performer come playoff time.

When he joined the team in ’96, Dotson was just the right piece to help Green Bay forge one of the most dominant defensive line’s in franchise history.
