  • By starting at San Francisco in Week 1, he became just the fourth Green Bay rookie to start the season opener at LT since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger and the first since Ken Ruettgers in 1985.

  • Was the only NFL rookie to start all 16 games at left tackle in 2013.
  • Last season, helped Green Bay finish in the top 10 in both rushing (No. 7) and passing (No. 6) for the first time since 2004.
  • Blocked for RB Eddie Lacy as he rushed for 1,178 yards in 2013, the most by a rookie in team history, as Lacy was selected to the Pro Bowl and was named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year by The Associated Press.
  • Selected by Green Bay with the first of three fourth-round selections (No. 109 overall), he became the first Colorado offensive lineman to be drafted by the Packers since C Joe Garten in 1991 (sixth round).
