15. Casey Hayward, Cornerback
Coming in at No. 15 on the list is the one who got away. Casey Hayward had some great seasons for the Packers, but has unequivocally reached his full potential with the Los Angeles Chargers.
Drafted in the second round in 2012, Hayward played the majority of his snaps as the Packers’ starting nickel cornerback during his time with the team. He isn’t the most athletic player, so he must rely on refined-technique to get the job done.
Hayward had an immediate impact as a rookie when he snatched six interceptions and broke up 21 passes. During his time in Green Bay, he intercepted a total of nine passes and recorded 35 pass-breakups.
The Packers let Hayward sign elsewhere when his contract expired after the 2015 season. Since joining the Chargers he’s been named to the Pro Bowl and a second-team All-Pro in both seasons with the team.
Despite his recent success with the Chargers, Hayward was consistent during his time with the Packers, which merits a spot on this list.
