8. Jackie Harris (1990-93)

The Green Bay Packers used a fourth-round pick in the 1990 NFL Draft to take tight end Jackie Harris from Northeast Louisiana (now Louisiana-Monroe) and he was a two-year starter before departing as a free agent.

Harris caught 55 passes for 595 yards and two scores in 1992, his first as the primary starter, and followed up with 42 receptions for 604 yards and four touchdowns in 1993.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Harris in June 1994 to an offer sheet as a transition player that made Harris the highest-paid tight end in the NFL, an offer the Packers chose not to match.

In four years with Green Bay, Harris caught 133 passes for 1,620 yards and nine touchdowns and gained one yard on his lone rushing attempt.

He wound up playing 12 years in the NFL. After a four-year stint with the Bucs, Harris signed with the Tennessee Oilers as a free agent in March 1998 and spent two years with the franchise, which changed its name to the Titans for the 1999 season.

In March 2000, Harris signed as a free agent with the Dallas Cowboys, retiring after he was released in February 2002.
