STUMPER Who is the only Packer draft pick to start against the team at quarterback in a Super Bowl?


1. D, Phillip Epps. The 321st pick in 1982 was arguably the Packers' fastest player throughout the 1980s and he flashed that blazing speed as a third receiver and a dangerous return man.

2. C, Bucky Scribner. The 299th pick in 1983 inherited the punting position from Stachowicz, who was the 62nd pick in 1981.

3. A, Mark Cannon. Similar to McCarren, Cannon was a bonafide late-round bargain. The Packers used the 294th pick in 1984 on the Texas-Arlington product and he went on to be a mainstay on the line through the 1980s.

4. C, Ken Stills. The hard-hitting Wisconsin product was the 209th pick in 1985 and stayed with the team – mostly as a starter – through the 1989 campaign.

5. B, Ty Detmer. The Heisman Trophy winner out of Brigham Young patiently learned behind Brett Favre in Green Bay for three years before bolting for Philadelphia and a starting job.

6. A, Adam Timmerman. The South Dakota State product was part of the 1995 draft which also produced Craig Newsome, William Henderson, Brian Williams, Antonio Freeman and Travis Jervey.


Daryl Lamonica. The Packers picked Lamonica in the 20th round out of Notre Dame in 1963 but he opted to play with Buffalo in the AFL. Lamonica played with Buffalo after being picked by the Bills in the 24th round. After four seasons in Buffalo, Lamonica played eight seasons in Oakland and was the Raiders' starter against the Packers in Super Bowl II.
