6. Larry McCarren (1973-84)

A 240-pound center at Illinois, Larry McCarren wasn’t given much of a chance for a career in the NFL after he was selected in the 12th round by the Green Bay Packers in the 1973 NFL Draft.

But McCarren took over the starting job at center for the Packers in 1974 and held it for the next 11 seasons, earning Pro Bowl bids in 1982 and 1983.

Nicknamed “The Rock,” McCarren started 162 consecutive games before succumbing to injury late in his final season, 1984.

In retirement, McCarren became synonymous with the Packers, teaming with Wayne Larrivee on radio broadcasts of Green Bay games since 1999.

McCarren was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 1992.
