2. Chris Jacke (1989-96)

The Green Bay Packers turned to the draft in their search for a kicker in 1989, taking UTEP’s Chris Jacke in the sixth round.

He won the job and went on to kick for the Packers for eight years, including earning All-Pro honors in 1993 when he was successful on 31-of-37 attempts.

Jacke made 21-of-27 in 1996, helping Green Bay claim the Super Bowl championship.

He left as a free agent after that season, signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers, who released him after he was injured in training camp. He kicked in one game for the Washington Redskins in 1997 and two seasons with the Arizona Cardinals before retiring after the 1999 campaign.

In his eight years in Green Bay, Jacke converted 173-of-224 field goal attempts (77.2 percent) and made all but five of 306 PAT tries.

His 173 career field goals are third in franchise history, as is his 77.2 percent accuracy rate. His 31 field goals in 1993 are tied for fourth-most in a single season and his 83.8 percent accuracy that year is ninth-best in team history.

Jacke was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 2013.
