PACKERS' BEST CLASS -- 1990
The Green Bay Packers have been one of the most successful franchises in NFL history. However, since the common draft began in 1967, the team has been average with their selections, with few superstars and no true standout draft classes. Arguably, the Packers' most significant player acquisitions in the past 40-plus years have been QB Brett Favre and DE Reggie White, but neither was drafted by the team.
