8. Randy Wright (1984-88)

The Green Bay Packers selected Wisconsin quarterback Randy Wright in the sixth round of the 1984 NFL Draft.

Wright made the team as a backup, starting one game in both the 1984 and 1985 seasons, before winning the starting job in 1986 after Lynn Dickey retired.

In that 1986 season, Wright threw for 3,247 yards, completing 53.5 percent of his passes with 17 touchdowns and 23 interceptions as the Packers went 4-12.

A part-time starter in 1987 and 1988, Green Bay was 2-12 in the 14 games he started over those two seasons.

He was waived before the start of the 1989 season.

In five seasons, Wright completed 53.8 percent of his passes for 7,106 yards, playing in 46 games and making 32 starts. He had 31 touchdown passes and 57 interceptions, compiling a passer rating of 61.4.

Green Bay was 7-25 in the games he started.

His 57 interceptions are tied for seventh in Packers history, his 31 touchdowns are tied for ninth and his 7,106 yards are seventh.

In March 1990, Wright signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers, who cut him in August of that year.
