4. Fred Carr (1968-77)

The Green Bay Packers went with a tall, rangy linebacker with the fifth overall pick in the 1968 NFL Draft, taking UTEP’s Fred Carr.

Carr was a backup for two years before taking over at right linebacker in 1970 and became a three-time Pro Bowler, never missing a start in his 10 seasons in Green Bay.

He had three interceptions in 1975, the last of his Pro Bowl campaigns, and made two picks in 1970, his first Pro Bowl season.

Carr was waived after injuring his knee during training camp in 1978 and retired.

He was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 1983.
