1. E, Dave Wannstedt. The Packers used the 376th overall pick of the 1974 draft to select Wannstedt, a 6-foot-4, 245-pound tackle out of Pittsburgh. Wannstedt spent one season on the Packers' injured reserve list with a neck ailment before beginning his coaching career.

2. C, Bruce Clark. Bart Starr had the fourth overall pick in the draft and was convinced that Clark, a defensive tackle out of Penn State, was willing to play for the Packers. Clark assured Starr that he wanted to be a Packer in a pre-draft get together at Penn State. Starr, though, turned out to be wrong. In his 1987 book, "My Life in Football: Starr," Starr said Clark's agent Richard Bennett had Clark quickly sign a Canadian Football League contract . Starr contended that Bennett did this so Bennett's other clients could use the CFL as "leverage against the other teams that drafted players he represented. Bennett's tactic was successful _ his clients all signed lucrative long-term contracts."

3. A. Ray Stachowicz. The Michigan State product lasted just two seasons in Green Bay, averaging 40.5 yards a punt, before Bucky Scribner took over the punting chores. Since then, the Packers have drafted four punters but none before the eighth round.
