Selected by the Green Bay Packers in the seventh round of the 1996 NFL Draft out of Ball State, Keith McKenzie played for the team from 1996-99 and in 2002. He played in 62 games for the Packers at defensive end, posting 18.5 sacks and 74 tackles, including 48 solo tackles, as well as eight fumble recoveries, three of which were returned for touchdowns. McKenzie also played a vital role on special teams, making a key block for Desmond Howard’s game-clinching kick return touchdown in Green Bay’s Super Bowl XXXI victory.
Selected by the Green Bay Packers in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft out of the University of Nebraska, Brandon Jackson played running back for the Packers from 2007-10, playing a crucial role as the team’s primary ball-carrier in 2010 during the Super Bowl XLV-winning season, when he rushed for 731 yards in 20 games. During the course of his 52-game Packers career, Jackson became known as a reliable pass protector and pass-catcher out of the backfield, and posted 1,329 rushing yards and 844 receiving yards.
