Best Players to Wear Green Bay Packers Number 7
1) Don Majkowski, QB (1988-92)
NFL Draft: 1987, Round 10, Pick 255 to the Green Bay Packers.
Don Majkowski is the best player to wear the Green Bay Packers’ number 7 jersey. He spent the first six seasons of his NFL career in Green Bay.
The Magic Man led the Packers to a 22-26-1 record, passing for 10,870 yards, 56 touchdowns and 56 interceptions. He was a Pro Bowler in his third season with the Packers, which was the best season of Majkowski’s career.
2) Quay Walker, LB (2022-Present)
NFL Draft: 2022, Round 1, Pick 22 to the Green Bay Packers
The Packers selected Quay Walker in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft. As expected, his first NFL season was a bit inconsistent. While he possesses elite athletic abilities, Walker will need to be coached a lot in order to become a more skilled and disciplined player.
In his rookie year, Quay Walker totaled 121 tackles and 1.5 sacks.
3) Brett Hundley, QB (2016-17)
NFL Draft: 2015, Round 5, Pick 147 to the Green Bay Packers
Brett Hundley spent two seasons with the Green Bay Packers, and he was asked to start nine games due to an injured Aaron Rodgers. Hundley didn’t exactly perform well. He led the team to a 3-6 record, completing 59.5% of his passes for 1,853 yards, nine touchdowns and 13 interceptions.
Who Wears Packers’ Number 7 in 2023?
Currently, linebacker Quay Walker wears the Green Bay Packers’ number 7 jersey. Walker ended his season in poor fashion, with a meltdown on the field. Prior to this, Walker looked like a rookie for much of the season. While the first-year linebacker out of Georgia showcased his potential, he also showcased a reckless style of play, which resulted in inconsistency on the defensive side of the ball. Hopefully, he will improve in his season year.
