GREEN BAY -

Chris Jacke and Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila are unlikely Packers legends.

Both men were late-round draft picks and both went on to long and storied careers with the Green and Gold. They were inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame Saturday night. 

The Packers chose Jacke in the sixth round of the 1989 NFL Draft. Jacke went on to kick in Green Bay for eight years. He is third on the Packers' all-time scoring list and helped the team win Super Bowl XXXI. 

KGB was chosen in the sixth round of the 2000 Draft. In that Draft, the Packers also took Bubba Franks, Chad Clifton, and Mark Tauscher, who all became mainstays with the Packers. In nine years with Green Bay, KGB piled up 74.5 career sacks, more than any other Packer in team history.
