The Green Bay Packers have seen some great wide receivers come through their franchise. Who are the five best to have done so?

Offensive success and the Green Bay Packers usually come hand in hand. Since 1992 when Brett Favre took over, the Packers have had one heck of a run of sustained greatness on that side of the ball.

Favre was a three-time MVP and when his time was up in Green Bay, Aaron Rodgers took over and added two more MVPs with more continued success.

The two quarterbacks gave the Packers an advantage at the game’s most important position most teams have been unable to replicate. Each player could tilt the field in their team’s favor every time they stepped on the field.

But, neither player could do it alone. Luckily for them, the Packers seemed to have good fortune finding wide receivers.

But, even before Favre and Rodgers, the Packers have had an eye for talent at that position. Boyd Dowler, Max McGee, and John Jefferson were all players who were stars at their position long before Favre and Rodgers.

The run of good receivers continues today. Davante Adams is one of the best playing and is poised for another big season.

Amongst all the great players to have played the position for Green Bay, who are the best?

That question really got me thinking so I decided to dig deep and come up with my list. I did my best to avoid recency bias and really get into what they meant to their era as well as the team.

Here are my five all-time best wide receivers for the Green Bay Packers.
