The Green Bay Packers have a rich history when it comes to drafting players. They've nailed some early picks, but they've also been able to identify some players who went on to greatly outperform their draft position. Here's a look at five of the biggest draft steals in Packers history.

Bart Starr, Quarterback

Drafted: 17th Round, 200th overall in 1956

Bart Starr is the literal definition of a draft steal. The dude wasn't selected until the 17th round in 1956 (drafts were much longer then than they are now) and he went on to author a Hall-of-Fame career.

Starr won two Super Bowls and five NFL Championships in Green Bay, and he also compiled a plethora of individual awards. He made four Pro Bowls and four All-Pro teams, led the league in passer rating five times and completion percentage four times. He was named the NFL's MVP in 1966, and was officially inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977. His No, 15 was also retired by the Packers. Not bad for a guy who had 199 other players get drafted before him. Talk about a value pick.
