GREEN BAY -- Despite another disappointing season in Green Bay, one offensive lineman continues to prove to the NFL that he is one of best at his position.

Left tackle David Bakhtiari has named first-team All-Pro for the first time in his career Friday. This is Bakhtiari's third-straight season being named All-Pro, after being named second-team All-Pro the last two seasons.

The only other offensive tackle in the history of the franchise to accomplish All-Pro recognition in consecutive seasons is Forrest Gregg.

Despite being named an All-Pro three straight seasons, he was snubbed from the NFL Pro Bowl for a second-straight year.
