2. Chad Clifton (2000-11)

Chad Clifton was a four-year starter at tackle for Tennessee before the Green Bay Packers selected him in the second round of the 2000 NFL Draft.

A part-time starter as a rookie, Clifton moved into the starting left tackle spot in 2001 and was there for most of the next 11 years.

In 2002, Clifton was blindsided by Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Warren Sapp after an interception, far away from the play, and was unable to walk without assistance for more than a month because of a severe hip injury.

But Clifton came back to start all 16 games in 2003 and was twice named to the Pro Bowl.

Injuries to his shoulders limited his effectiveness and he was released by the Packers in April 2012 after playing in 165 games and starting 160 of them.
