Hall of Famers

Willie Davis - Class of 1981
Defensive End (1960-69)

After two seasons with the Cleveland Browns, Willie Davis came to the Green Bay Packers in a 1960 trade for offensive lineman A.D. Williams.

At the time, it was quite likely that the Browns, who had selected Davis in the 15th round of the 1956 draft and intended to use him as an offensive tackle, didn't know what they were giving up. But Packers GM/Head Coach Vince Lombardi apparently knew what he was getting.

Once asked to describe the attributes of a great player, Lombardi said, "You look for speed, agility and size. You may get two of these qualities in one man and when you have three, you have a great player. In Willie Davis, we have a great one. For a big man, 6-3 and 240 pounds, he has excellent agility and he has great sincerity and determination."

For 10 seasons, Davis anchored the Packers' defensive line, playing 138 consecutive regular-season games, part of 162 consecutive regular-season games for his NFL career.

Davis was member to all five of Lombardi's NFL title-winning teams and played in Super Bowls I and II.

Over the course of his career, playing in an era when neither tackles nor sacks were official statistics, Davis earned Associated Press All-Pro honors five times ('62, '64-67). Meanwhile, he was voted to the Pro Bowl five times ('63-67).

Davis recovered 21 fumbles over his Packers career, which, more than three decades removed from his retirement, remains a team record.

Davis wore number 87 during his Packers career.

William Delford Davis was born July 24, 1934, in Lisbon, La.
