Bobby Dillon

Chad Burkholder
Packers Hall of Fame

Inducted 1974

Bobby Dillon always made opposing quarterbacks pay for their mistakes. He stole 52 passes in just nine seasons as a Packer safety. He remains the teams all-time interception leader.

The 6’1”, 185-pound Dillon was the Packers number three draft choice in 1952. The former University of Texas Longhorn had a knack for pass interceptions, despite having sight in just one eye.

The five-time All Pro was Green Bay’s interception leader or co-leader for seven seasons. Dillon scored five touchdowns returning interceptions as a Packer from 1952-’59.
