Green Bay Packers: Top 10 defensive linemen of all time

9 of 11

3. Henry Jordan

Jordan was a tough and rugged defensive tackle during one of the most physical and violent eras of professional football.

Like other defensive lineman that predate the 1980s, it’s difficult to translate Jordan’s dominance at the line of scrimmage to tangible numbers, like sacks or tackles.

However, the six-time All Pro played 11 seasons (’59-’69) in Green Bay and was a key member of five championship and two Super Bowl teams. Jordan was just as an integral part of the 1960s Packers dynasty as players like Ray Nitschke, Jim Taylor, and Willie Davis.

Known for showing up in big games, Jordan recorded six tackles in Super Bowl I and 3.5 sacks in the Packers win over the Rams in 1967 playoffs.

As a member of both the Pro Football and Packers Hall of Fame, Jordan is one of several iconic figures that emerged from the golden age of Packers football.
