Best Players to Wear Green Bay Packers Number 20
1) Kevin King, CB (2017-22)
NFL Draft: 2017, Round 2, Pick 33 to the Green Bay Packers.
I don’t like this any more than you do. According to Pro Football Reference, Kevin King is the best player to wear the Green Bay Packers’ number 20 jersey. Of course, if you ask Packer fans what they think of Kevin King, they would tell you that the 33rd pick in the 2017 NFL Draft was a bust.
Kevin King should be happy his career in Green Bay lasted as long as it did. King played five seasons for the Packers, playing in 51 total games. Injuries plagued his career, keeping him off of the field often and limited while actually playing as well. He totaled seven interceptions, 197 tackles and two forced fumbles.
2) Atari Bigby, S (2006-10)
NFL Draft: Undrafted in 2005
After going undrafted, Atari Bigby bounced around a couple of teams before finding a home in Green Bay. While Bigby saw action in only six games in his first two seasons (due to playing a bit in Amsterdam), in he ended up playing in 46 over six seasons. He made 33 starts and totaled 10 interceptions, 164 tackles and three forced fumbles. Bigby was part of the team that won Super Bowl XLV.
3) Marques Anderson, S (2002-03)
NFL Draft: 2002, Round 3, Pick 92 to the Green Bay Packers
Marques Anderson was a third-round draft pick who only played two years in Green Bay. Making 18 starts, Anderson totaled five interceptions, 136 tackles and two touchdowns in 30 games.
Who Wears Packers’ Number 20 in 2023?
Currently, Rudy Ford wears the Green Bay Packers’ number 20 jersey. Ford joined the Packers last season with the thought of him primarily being a special teams contributor. However, his role quickly grew on defense, and now he is competing for a starting safety job for the 2023 Packers season.
