20. LeRoy Butler
Credited with inventing the “Lambeau Leap” (which alone qualifies him for any all-time great Green Bay Packers list) Leroy Butler was a career Green Bay Packer who was the first Defensive Back to join the 20/20 (Quarterbacks and Interceptions) club.  Butler would earn a Super Bowl Ring and along with his four First Team All Pro nods, he was also chosen for the prestigious NFL 1990’s All-Decade Team.
