5. Mark Chmura (1993-99)

The Green Bay Packers selected Boston College tight end Mark Chmura in the sixth round of the 1992 NFL Draft after he set a school record with 164 receptions for the Eagles.

He missed his rookie season, spending 1992 on injured reserve with a back injury sustained in training camp, but made the team out of training camp in 1993.

Chmura became the starter at tight end in 1995 and made the first of his three Pro Bowl appearances while posting career-highs of 54 receptions, 679 yards and seven touchdowns.

Chmura was limited to 13 games in 1996 as the Packers won the Super Bowl, but returned to the Pro Bowl in 1997 and 1998.

He played just two games in the 1999 season before suffering a career-ending spinal injury and was released by the Packers in June 2000.

In seven seasons, he had 188 receptions for 2,253 yards and 17 scores and was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 2010.
