Green Bay- Packers legend Bart Starr won five NFL Championships and two Super Bowls while quarterbacking the Packers from 1956-'71. But his Packer career almost never was.
Starr, taken in the 17th round (there are only 7 rounds today), says the only reason he was drafted was because a hoops coach did him a huge favor.
"I was injured my final two years of college. So I didn't have much of a resume. If it hadn't been for the basketball coach at the University of Alabama- where I went to school- who knew the director of player personnel here, I never would've been taken by the Packers. It wasn't until the 17th round. So just picture that."
