Adderley was the Packers’ No. 1 draft choice in 1961 after a noteworthy career at Michigan State. Considered one of the all-time greats at cornerback, the five-time All-Pro played in five Pro Bowls and the first two Super Bowls with Green Bay. Adderly racked up 39 interceptions with the Packers, seven of which he ran back for touchdowns. His three defensive touchdowns in 1965 remain tied for a Packers record.
Robinson, the Packers’ No. 1 draft choice in 1963 was as an All-American linebacker out of Penn State. In 10 seasons with the Packers, he earned multiple All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors and helped the Packers win three NFL championships, including the first two Super Bowls. One of the best linebackers of his era, he was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 1982 and this year is a senior candidate for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Taylor, a first-round draft pick in 1994 out of Notre Dame, played a total of 53 overall games for the Green Bay Packers from 1995 to 1997. The offensive guard was a key member of an offensive line that helped pave the way to three straight conference championship games, two Super Bowls and a win in Super Bowl XXXI. Overall, Taylor helped the Packers to 41 wins during his career.
All three former Packers players will be introduced on Lambeau Field during pregame festivities.
