Best Players to Wear Green Bay Packers Number 75
1) Forrest Gregg, OL (1956-70)
NFL Draft: 1956, Round 2, Pick 20 to the Green Bay Packers
The best player ever to wear the Green Bay Packers’ number 75 jersey is Forrest Gregg. He is also one of the greatest players in Packers history.
The Hall of Famer won five NFL Championships and two Super Bowls in 14 seasons with the Packers. He also was voted to the First-Team All-Pro seven times, Second-Team twice, Pro Bowl nine times and the NFL 100th Anniversary All-Time Team.
2) Ken Ruettgers, OT (1985-96)
NFL Draft: 1985, Round 1, Pick 7 to the Green Bay Packers
Ken Ruettgers was drafted in the first round of the 1985 NFL Draft by the Packers, and he spend all 12 of his NFL seasons in Green Bay. He started 140 games for the Packers, locking down the left tackle spot for a long time while winning one Super Bowl.
3) Bryan Bulaga, OT (2010-19)
NFL Draft: 2010, Round 1, Pick 23 to the Green Bay Packers
Many fans remember the drawl of the right tackle in his intro video, “Bryan Bulaga, Iowa.” Bulaga was a force at right tackle in the Packers’ number 75 jersey for nine years, as he won one Super Bowl with the team. While he was a terrific player, injuries kept him off of the field or at less than 100 percent too often, leading to his exit from the team before the Packers had a solid replacement plan.
Who Wears Packers’ Number 75 in 2023?
Currently, Sean Rhyan wears the Green Bay Packers’ number 75 jersey. This may be the first time you have heard/read Rhyan’s name since he was a third-round draft pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. Following the draft, he disappeared, and he currently looks to be yet another third-round bust in Green Bay.
Hopefully, Rhyan can have a strong training camp and look like the player the Packers drafted him to be. While most of his work has been at tackle, the Packers could/should see how he looks at center.
