Versatile Fred Cone was a threat to Packer opponents through most of the 1950s. A number three draft choice in 1951, the 5’11”, 200-pound fullback and kicker was the team’s leading scorer for five consecutive seasons, from 1953-’57. Cone led the team in scoring in his rookie season.

A star at Clemson University, Cone rushed for 1,156 yards and scored 16 touchdowns over six seasons. He kicked 53 field goals and 200 extra points as a Packer.
