Inscription.  Selected by the Green Bay Packers in the final round of the 1999 NFL Draft, Donald Driver beat the odds to become one of the greatest receivers in franchise history. Driver spent his entire career with the Packers, making four Pro Bowls and helping lead the team to victory in Super Bowl XLV. A fearless receiver that could go across the middle and stretch the field, Driver set the franchise's all-time marks in career receptions (743), career receiving yards (10,137), seasons with 1,000 receiving yards (7), seasons with 50 or more receptions (9) and consecutive games with a receptions (133). His inspirational story of overcoming poverty and homelessness as a child, along with his tireless community efforts, made him one of the most popular players to ever wear a Packers uniform.
