With the Green Bay Packers set to open training camp at the end of this month, Dairyland Express charges ahead during our look back at the rich history of the Pack, ranking the top 10 players since 1960 by position groups.

Why 1960? Because it’s just more quantifiable since then. Full statistical information exists, which makes comparisons much easier, and honestly, professional football is a different game since the formation of the American Football League and its high-powered passing games.

We would be remiss to not acknowledge some of the top performers from that era prior to 1960, and on the offensive line that would mean players such as Hall of Famers Jim Ringo (1953-63)—who played most of his career prior to 1960—as well as fellow enshrines Mike Michalske (1929-37) and Cal Hubbard (1929-35). Other longtime performers on the offensive line were Jug Earp (1922-32), Buckets Goldenberg (1933-45) and Baby Ray (1938-48).
