Aaron Jones, Running back

Drafted: 5th round, 182nd overall in 2017

Aaron Jones was a very productive player for the Packers for seven seasons after the team selected him in the fifth round in 2017. and the fact that he signed with a major rival in the Minnesota Vikings in free agency this offseason doesn't change that. Jones compiled over 8,000 scrimmage yards and 63 total touchdowns during his time with the team. He was the NFL's co-leader in rushing touchdowns in 2019 and he made the Pro Bowl in 2020. It's safe to say that Jones was a very solid selection, especially for a fifth-rounder.

Donald Driver, Wide receiver

Drafted: 7th round, 213th overall in 1999

Green Bay's all-time leader in both receptions and receiving yards wasn't selected until the seventh round in 1999 -- that's pretty crazy. Donald Driver was named to four Pro Bowls as a Packer, and he helped the team win Super Bowl XLV. He's the only Packers receiver to eclipse the 10,000-yard mark and the only one to tally over 700 total receptions. Not bad for a guy who was clearly an afterthought heading into his draft.

Driver was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 2017, and deservedly so, as he's clearly one of the best picks in franchise history, especially considering how late they were able to land him.
