Which Green Bay Packers draft picks are still with the team, and which are now toiling elsewhere? Take a look at this list, which primarily focuses on players who saw the field in 2021 and doesn't necessarily account for all players on practice squads or futures contracts.

Aaron Rodgers reacts after being selected by the Packers as the 24th overall pick the 2005 NFL draft.


Aaron Rodgers (1st round, pick 24). Perhaps you're familiar? The selection became an unforgettable moment in Wisconsin sports history, when then-general manager Ted Thompson took the Cal quarterback at a time when Brett Favre was still an elite quarterback. The investment paid off when Rodgers became a superstar and four-time MVP.


Mason Crosby (6th round, pick 193). The kicker taken out of Colorado has been almost as constant a staple as Rodgers over the past 15 years of Packers football. He long ago set the mark for most career points in Packers history and battled through career valleys to continually produce in big moments.

Mason Crosby has been the Packers' kicker since being drafted in 2007.

Randall Cobb is in his second stint with the Packers.

Randall Cobb (2nd round, pick 64). The receiver out of Kentucky left and came back to the Packers, and he'll be in his second season of his second stint next year. He caught five touchdowns last year, adding to the 41 he caught between 2011-18 in his first stint with the Packers before spending one year with Dallas and another with Houston.

David Bakhtiari was a fourth-round pick in the 2013 NFL draft.

David Bakhtiari (4th round, pick 109). The two-time first-team All Pro still is battling back from the knee injury that kept him from the 2020 postseason, but he remains one of the most respected left tackles in all of football. As "value picks" go, he's one of the best in franchise history. 


Kenny Clark was picked near the end of the first round in the 2016 NFL draft.

Kenny Clark (1st round, pick 27). The force-of-nature defensive lineman from UCLA has been selected to two Pro Bowls and remains on the short list of Green Bay's "best player on defense" at any given moment. He's still just 26 years old, turning 27 early in the 2022 season.

Dean Lowry (4th round, pick 137). The defensive tackle out of Northwestern signed a three-year contract extension in 2019 and has played in every game since, with five sacks last year and four passes defended. He has 15 career sacks plus four fumble recoveries and an interception.


Aaron Jones was the 182nd pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Aaron Jones (5th round, pick 182). A fifth-round steal out of UTEP, Jones has amassed more than 4,000 career yards with the Packers and 41 touchdowns, with a spot in the 2020 Pro Bowl and a league-high 16 rushing touchdowns in 2019. He signed a lucrative four-year extension to stay in Green Bay in March 2021.


Jaire Alexander was a second-team all-pro pick in 2020.

Jaire Alexander (1st round, pick 18). The cornerback out of Louisville has established himself as a star in the league, even if he missed most of last season with a shoulder injury. The second-team all-pro in 2020 is a candidate for a long-term extension.


Rashan Gary emerged last season as a pass-rushing threat.

Rashan Gary (1st round, pick 12). The pass rusher out of Michigan has gotten significantly better during his time with Green Bay, to the point that he emerged as a disruptive force in 2021, when he started all 16 games and posted 9½ sacks.

Darnell Savage (1st round, pick 21). The safety out of Maryland has had his moments over the past three years, both good and bad, and 2022 stands to be a big season for him. He's made 46 starts and recorded eight interceptions, with two forced fumbles.

Elgton Jenkins (2nd round, pick 44). A torn ACL sidelined Jenkins midway through the 2021 season and proved costly for the Packers. Though he was taken as a center out of Mississippi State, he's proven he can play anywhere on the line, and do so with excellence. He was named to the 2020 Pro Bowl team.

Ty Summers (7th round, pick 226). The linebacker out of TCU saw action in 14 games last year and made nine tackles. 


AJ Dillon has endeared himself to Packers fans on and off the field.

Jordan Love (1st round, pick 26). One of the most-discussed draft selections in franchise history, the quarterback out of Utah State looked like the heir apparent to Aaron Rodgers. But Rodgers has won back-to-back MVPs and seems to have settled his discontent with the franchise, leaving Love's role on the team in limbo. He made his NFL debut in 2021 against Kansas City.

AJ Dillon (2nd round, pick 62). The thunderous running back out of Boston College has won the hearts of Wisconsinites, throwing out first pitches at baseball games and gushing over Door County, and it doesn't hurt that he has nine total touchdowns in two seasons and 1,045 yards rushing.

Josiah Deguara (3rd round, pick 94). The "H-Back" was a surprising pick in the third round out of Cincinnati, and he's had to battle injury to get on the field. Last year, he saw time in 16 games and made 25 receptions with two touchdowns.

Jon Runyan (6th round, pick 192). Runyan, a guard out of Michigan, has proven himself as valuable depth on the offensive line, starting 16 games in his two seasons.

Jake Hanson (6th round, pick 208). Drafted out of Oregon, he saw time in five games in 2021.

Vernon Scott (7th round, pick 236). The safety out of TCU appeared in three games last year as he battled a hamstring injury after seeing time in 15 the year before. 

Jonathan Garvin (7th round, pick 242). Garvin picked up his first NFL start in 2021 and finished the year with 19 tackles and 1½ sacks.


Eric Stokes, left, quickly became a key member of the Packers' secondary in his rookie season.

Eric Stokes (1st round, pick 29). The speedy cornerback out of Georgia flashed serious promise in his rookie year and will be heavily relied upon in 2022.

Josh Myers (2nd round, pick 62). With Corey Linsley moving on, Myers became the team's starting center immediately, though injury limited him to just six games.

Amari Rodgers (3rd round, pick 85). Rodgers had a rugged first year as a receiver and return man, but there remains a lot of potential for the receiver out of Clemson. He caught 20 passes for 166 yards as a rookie.

Royce Newman (4th round, pick 142). The offensive lineman out of Mississippi proved highly valuable, with 16 starts and appearances in all 17 games at guard.

T.J. Slaton (5th round, pick 173). The defensive tackle from Florida had a sack and 23 combined tackles in his rookie season, a promising start that lends intrigue to what's ahead.

Shemar Jean-Charles (5th round, pick 178). A potential slot corner, he saw time in 14 games mostly on special teams and posted eight tackles as a rookie.

Cole Van Lanen (6th round, pick 214). The University of Wisconsin offensive lineman saw action in one game against the Minnesota Vikings in 2021.

Isaiah McDuffie (6th round, pick 220). Drafted as a linebacker out of Boston College, McDuffie made an appearance on the field in 13 games as a rookie.

Kylin Hill (7th round, pick 256). The running back out of Mississippi State flashed major promise as a kick returner and running back before an ACL tear cut his season at eight games.

Still in the NFL, but not with the Packers


Clark Harris was a seventh-round pick of the Packers in 2007.

Clark Harris (7th round, pick 243). Be honest, you've forgotten the name ... if you ever knew it. The long snapper out of Rutgers only briefly spent time with the Packers — on the practice squad — in September 2007 but stuck around the league and found a permanent job with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2009. Ever since, he's been their guy, with a Pro Bowl spot in 2017 and a one-year extension for 2022. He'll be 38 just before the start of the season. 


Bryan Bulaga was a reliable starter at right tackle for the Packers through 2019.

Bryan Bulaga (1st round, pick 23). The offensive lineman out of Iowa became a rock at right tackle through the 2019 season before joining the Chargers in 2020. Injuries limited him to 10 games in 2020 and just one game last year, and Los Angeles released him in March.


Lawrence Guy, center, found NFL success only after leaving Green Bay.

Lawrence Guy (7th round, pick 233). The defensive tackle out of Arizona State never saw the field with the Packers, spending his two seasons either injured or on the practice squad. But he overcame the odds and found new life in New England, where he's played the past five seasons after bouncing around the NFL. He first got a foothold in 2015 when he played in 16 games for the Ravens, the first of back-to-back seasons in Baltimore. 


Casey Hayward. right, earned Pro Bowl status after leaving Green Bay for Los Angeles.

Casey Hayward (2nd round, pick 62). One of the great "what ifs" of recent Packers history is the decision to move on from the cornerback out of Vanderbilt after his fourth season in Green Bay in 2015. Hayward made back-to-back Pro Bowls with the Chargers in 2016 and 2017, the first of his five steady years with the Chargers. He started 17 games last year for Las Vegas in his age-32 season, credited with 46 tackles, an interception and a safety.

Mike Daniels (4th round, pick 132). The defensive tackle out of Iowa got to a Super Bowl this past season with the Cincinnati Bengals, although he was limited greatly by injury and saw the field for only one postseason snap. Daniels started 11 games last year for the AFC champions and proved to be a standout with Green Bay from 2012-18, when he racked up 29 sacks and made a Pro Bowl.


Micah Hyde became an all-pro after joining the Bills.

J.C. Tretter (4th round, pick 121). Drafted as an offensive tackle out of Cornell, Tretter became the Packers' starting center in 2015 and 2016 before an injury knocked him out of the latter season. He signed with Cleveland thereafter and played with the Browns for five seasons, though he was just released in March. He's still president of the NFL Players Association.

Micah Hyde (5th round, pick 159). One of the biggest "ones that got away" on this list. Hyde, a defensive back drafted out of Iowa, played in Green Bay from 2013-16 and then flourished with the Buffalo Bills after the Packers released him. Hyde was named second-team all-pro last year for the second time with the Bills, posting five interceptions last year and starting all 17 games for a Super Bowl contender.


Center Corey Linsley played in 99 games with Green Bay before signing with the Chargers.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix (1st round, pick 21). The safety from Alabama made a Pro Bowl in 2016 and spent four-plus seasons in Green Bay. He was opportunistic (14 interceptions) and healthy but didn't emerge as a standout safety. He spent time with Washington, Chicago and Las Vegas over the past four years, most recently with the Raiders for two games last year. He's currently a free agent.

Davante Adams (2nd round, pick 53). He has a case as the greatest receiver in franchise history, a two-time first-team all-pro and five-time Pro Bowler who owns the franchise single-season yards and receptions record. But he was dealt in a high-profile trade to the Raiders in the offseason. 

Richard Rodgers (3rd round, pick 98). He caught one of the most iconic passes in Aaron Rodgers' career, and he was a steady tight end out of Cal for Green Bay from 2014-17. He's been with Philadelphia (though, oddly, bouncing back and forth with Washington and never seeing the field for the Commanders), appearing in 22 games since 2018 with Philly. He appeared in three games last year for the Eagles and was on the roster for the playoffs.

Corey Linsley (5th round, pick 161). He was named first-team all-pro at center in 2020, his last year with the Packers after a rock-solid seven-year stay. Last year, he was second-team all-pro in his first year with the Los Angeles Chargers, with whom he signed a five-year contract. He played in 99 games with the Packers and 11 in the playoffs.


Ty Montgomery has bounced around after leaving Green Bay in 2018.

Ty Montgomery (3rd round, pick 94). A rare remainder from the doomed 2015 draft class still in the NFL (though Damarious Randall had a practice-squad job last year with the Rams), Montgomery was drafted out of Stanford as a wide receiver but moved to running back during his run with the Packers from 2015-18. He was traded to Baltimore in 2018 and played since for the Jets and Saints. With New Orleans, he played in 14 games last year, rushing the ball 15 times and catching 16 passes. In March, he signed a two-year deal with the Patriots.

Brett Hundley (5th round, pick 147). Hundley spent last year with Indianapolis, largely on the practice squad, but has not seen the field since 2019 with Arizona and currently is a free agent. He played in 11 games with the 2017 Packers, throwing for nine touchdowns and 12 interceptions.


Kyler Fackrell had 16.5 sacks with the Packers.

Jason Spriggs (2nd round, pick 48). The offensive tackle out of Indiana wasn't able to win a starting job but did make nine starts over three seasons with the Packers. He was with the Bears in 2020 and made one start last year with Atlanta. 

Kyler Fackrell (3rd round, pick 88). The linebacker from Utah State spent four seasons in Green Bay, recording 10½ sacks in 2018 and 16½ overall for the Packers. He had a productive season with the Giants in 2020, was with the Chargers last year and just signed a one-year deal with the Raiders.

Blake Martinez (4th round, pick 131). The inside linebacker from Stanford stayed four years with the Packers, sharing the league lead in tackles in 2017. He was limited to three games by a torn ACL last year in his second season with the Giants.


Jamaal Williams was a fan favorite in Green Bay before joining Detroit last season.

Kevin King (2nd round, pick 33). One of the more infamous picks in recent history because Green Bay traded back — and of course missed out on taking future NFL defensive player of the year T.J. Watt as a result — before taking the cornerback out of Washington, a player who's battled injury and ineffectiveness. He played in 10 games in 2021 for the Packers in his fifth season with them, though now he's a free agent.

Josh Jones (2nd round, pick 61). The safety couldn't quite catch on in his two seasons with the Packers and he's bounced around in the years since. He saw the field for 10 games last year, split between the Colts and Seahawks. 

Montravius Adams (3rd round, pick 93). The defensive tackle out of Auburn just signed a two-year extension to remain in Pittsburgh after starting four games with the Steelers last year and splitting time with New Orleans. He was in Green Bay through the 2020 season.

Vince Biegel (4th round, pick 108). The University of Wisconsin alumnus returned to the field after a serious injury, appearing in five games for the Dolphins in 2021. He saw the field for Green Bay only in 2017.

Jamaal Williams (4th round, pick 134). The fun-loving running back out of BYU spent four seasons in Green Bay and then signed a two-year deal with Detroit before the 2021 season, during which he ran for a career-best 601 yards and caught 26 passes for another 157 yards.


Oren Burks was a special teams leader with the Packers but signed with San Francisco this offseason.

Josh Jackson (2nd round, pick 45). The hard-hitting cornerback out of Iowa started 15 games over three seasons with the Packers but was then traded to the Giants for Isaac Yiadom. Jackson was waived but did appear in two games for the Chiefs in 2021.

Oren Burks (3rd round, pick 88). Burks just signed with San Francisco after four seasons with the Packers. The linebacker out of Vanderbilt became a key contributor on special teams.

J.K. Scott (5th round, pick 172). The punter out of Alabama didn't live up to his draft spot during his three seasons with the Packers, but he appeared in one game for Jacksonville last year and signed in March with the Chargers.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling (5th round, pick 174). The deep-threat receiver out of South Florida signed a three-year, $30 million deal with Kansas City in March. He was limited by injury in 2021 but played in all 16 games the three years before that and finished his tenure in Green Bay with 13 touchdowns and more than 2,100 yards.

Equanimeous St. Brown (6th round, pick 207). The receiver out of Notre Dame battled injury and couldn't crack the regular lineup, though he did have 35 career receptions in Green Bay over his four years. He signed with the Bears in March.

Hunter Bradley (7th round, 239th overall). Drafted as a long snapper out of Mississippi State, Bradley saw the field each of the past four seasons but was released in November.


Kingsley Keke was released last season and claimed by Houston.

Kingsley Keke (5th round, pick 150). The defensive lineman had his moments during his tenure from 2019-21, though he was released under somewhat mysterious circumstances in January, after a reported disagreement with coaching staff, and was claimed on waivers by Houston.

Other members of the 2019 draft class Ka'Dar Hollman, Jace Sternberger and Dexter Williams spent time in the NFL last year but did not see the field. 


Kamal Martin was released before last season and signed with Carolina.

Kamal Martin (5th round, pick 175). Martin, a linebacker out of Minnesota, played in 10 games in 2020 and finished with three tackles for loss and a sack, but he was waived before the 2021 season and signed with Carolina, where he played in six games last year.
