40. Jamaal Williams – RB

Jamaal Williams has been an underrated player for the Packers in recent years. He might not be a superstar running back like teammate Aaron Jones, but he is a capable runner between the tackles, a talented pass catcher, and a good blocker. Williams will continue to play an important role in Matt LaFleur’s offense in 2020.

39. Ty Montgomery – RB

When the Packers lost Eddie Lacy to injury in 2016, they desperately needed help at running back. Ty Montgomery made the move to running back from wide receiver and it paid off. Montgomery would take over as the starting running back in the second half of the season, finishing with 457 yards and three touchdowns. Montgomery had a memorable game against the Chicago Bears, rushing for 162 yards and two touchdowns.

38. Matt Flynn – QB

Matt Flynn made quite the impact as the Packers’ backup quarterback. After going head-to-head with Tom Brady in a close loss to the New England Patriots in 2010, Flynn would set a franchise record with six touchdown passes in a game in a win against the Detroit Lions in 2011. He returned to Green Bay, saving its season in 2013 with a memorable comeback victory over the Dallas Cowboys and another win over the Atlanta Falcons. He kept the Packers in contention long enough for Aaron Rodgers to recover from a broken collarbone.

37. A.J. Hawk – ILB

A.J. Hawk started 74 games for the Packers in the 2010s, and he played a key role in the Super Bowl victory to start the decade. In those five seasons, Hawk finished with 522 tackles.

36. Lane Taylor – G

Despite missing most of the last season due to injury, Lane Taylor has been a consistent part of the offensive line since the start of 2016. He’s made 49 starts with the Packers and has helped this team consistently have one of the best pass-protecting offensive lines in football.
