Best Players to Wear Green Bay Packers Number 65
1) Mark Tauscher, OT (2000-10)
NFL Draft: 2000, Round 7, Pick 224 to the Green Bay Packers
Despite never being a top-tier player, Mark Tauscher has become sort of a Wisconsin legend. Born in Marshfield and playing his college ball with the Badgers, Tauscher ended up being a seven-round draft pick. All 11 of his NFL season were spent in a Green Bay Packers number 65 jersey.
Despite being a seventh-round pick, Mark Tauscher was also a starter for his entire career at offensive tackle. He also won a Super Bowl and now hosts a successful sports talk show.
2) Ron Hallstrom, OL (1982-92)
NFL Draft: 1982, Round 1, Pick 22 to the Green Bay Packers
After being a first-round draft pick by Green Bay, Ron Hallstrom spent 11 seasons playing with the Packers. He made starts at both guard and tackle, though guard is his better position. He made 124 starts in 11 years.
3) Lane Taylor, G (2013-20)
NFL Draft: Undrafted in 2013
After going undrafted in the 2013 NFL Draft, Lane Taylor was picked up and developed by Green Bay. He developed into a terrific player on the interior offensive line. Taylor ended up wearing the Packers’ number 65 jersey for eight seasons. Injuries limited him in his final few NFL seasons, unfortunately.
