19. B.J. Raji (Freddie’s pick)
Entering the list at No. 19 is a former ninth overall pick and a fan favorite in Green Bay: B.J. Raji. Let’s start with his biggest play as a Packer. In the NFC Championship Game at Chicago in 2010, who can forget his pick-six and Aaron Rodgers championship belt celebration in the end zone? Seeing the big man stroll in for a touchdown will go down as one of the key plays en route to the Super Bowl.
But Raji did so much else during his time in Green Bay. He had flashes of dominance at nose tackle early in his career and had the look of potentially becoming a double-digit sack player in the years to come.
He featured in 14 games as a rookie but started just one. That all changed in 2010, when Raji started every game of the season, posting 6.5 sacks with three defended passes.
Unfortunately for Raji, he was never able to quite live up to high expectations set early in his career. A biceps injury wiped out his 2014 season after a disappointing 2013 campaign, and he put together an up-and-down 2015 campaign after flying out the gates.
Still, Raji’s decision to step away from the game was jarring for Packers fans an further increased the urgency to find a young talent at defensive tackle. Whether Raji ever returns to the football field or not, as a person he will always be welcomed with open arms in Green Bay.
