8. Packers steal Driver in seventh round
Driver, a track and field star at Alcorn State, flew under the radar throughout the 1999 draft process. GM Ron Wolf finally took a flyer on the undersized receiver with the 213th pick, which turned out to be one the best picks in Packers history.
7. Underdog turned Pro Bowl star
Driver only had 37 catches through his first three seasons, but he managed to flip the switch at age 27. He appeared in four Pro Bowls during his career with the Packers: 2002, '06, '07, '09. Driver totaled 92 catches for 1,295 yards in 2006, both career highs.
6. Retirement ceremony
Driver retired from the NFL in February 2013. The Packers held a public retirement ceremony for no. 80, the first such ceremony in Green Bay history. Driver now has a street named after him in downtown Green Bay - Donald Driver Way.
5. Favre and Driver make history
Brett Favre and Donald Driver were wonderful tag-team partners in Green Bay, so it's only fitting that Driver was a part of Favre's record-setting moment. In 2007, Favre hit Driver for a seven-yard pass against the Rams, which pushed Favre past Dan Marino's all-time passing yards total. Favre finished with 71,838 yards through the air.
4. Driver sets the receptions record
Driver finally cemented his place in Packers lore in October 2009 when he hauled in his 596th career catch to break the tie with Sterling Sharpe as Green Bay's all-time leading receiver. Driver finished with 743 total receptions during his 14-year career.
3. Driver goes the distance
In 2008, with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line, Driver muscled Giants' cornerback Corey Webster to the ground at the line of scrimmage and took off down the sideline. Brett Favre found Driver behind the defense, and his receiver did the rest. Driver's 90-yard touchdown reception is the longest play in Packers' playoff history.
2. Driver breaks six tackles for iconic TD
Donning the Packers' throwback unis, Driver pulled off maybe his most memorable play. Aaron Rodgers found Driver wide open downfield, and let no. 80 go to work. Driver busted through two arm tackles at the 25-yeard line before barrelling over four defenders at the goal line for the score.
1. Super Bowl Champion
In his 12th season and at 35 years old, Driver ceded the starting role to Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson. Still, Driver was a crucial member of the Packers' Super Bowl squad. He hauled in 14 balls throughout the playoffs as the Packers brought the Lombardi Trophy back to Titletown for the first time in over a decade.
