Green Bay Packers: Top 10 defensive linemen of all time

6 of 11

6. Lionel Aldridge

When people think back on the Lombardi era, Aldridge may not be the first player that comes to mind.

However, the Packers Hall of Famer was an integral part of a defensive line that dominated opposing offenses during the 1960s.

Playing nine seasons for the Packers (’63-’71), Aldridge only missed three starts in 126 games and was a big part of the Packers winning three NFL championships and the first two Super Bowls in 1965, 1966, and 1967.

Since sacks and tackles weren’t an official statistic during his career, it’s difficult to exactly quantify Aldridge’s impact on the field.

However, the fact he was one of the only rookies to start immediately on a Lombardi team and then hold the position for nine straight seasons during the best decade of Packers football says a lot about his game.
