8. Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila (2000-08)

Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila was more of a project than a prospect when the Green Bay Packers selected him out of San Diego State in the fifth round of the 2000 NFL Draft.

He played in just seven games as a rookie, but exploded on the scene as a pass-rush specialist in 2011, logging 13½ sacks.

Over the course of his nine years in Green Bay, Gbaja-Biamila just kept finding his way to the quarterback, earning Pro Bowl honors in 2003 and topping the 10-sack mark four times, including another 13½-sack season in 2004.

Later in his career, he returned to his role of third-down pass-rush specialist, finishing his career with a team-record 74½ sacks. He also had an interception in 2002 that he returned for a touchdown, defensed 11 passes, forced 17 fumbles and made 290 tackles.

His 17 forced fumbles are also the most in team history.

He was released in November 2008 and was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 2013.
