Of all the Green Bay Packers nominated, Jerry Kramer is probably the best known as an author. His book Instant Replay is arguably the greatest NFL memoir ever written.

And that is with no disrespect to what he did as a player. As a three-time Pro Bowler and five-time first-team All-Pro, he was acknowledged as one of the best offensive guards while he played. As a pulling guard, he arguably was the key player in making the Packers' power sweep work during the Lombardi era. And he did something else that you'd never see today from an offensive lineman: he was also the kicker, and even led the NFL in 1962 by converting nearly 82% of his FG attempts.
