Nelson was a second-round pick in the 2008 draft and went on to have a very productive career with the Packers. The Kansas State product finished with the fourth-most catches (550), sixth-most yards (7,848) and the third-most touchdowns (69) in team history. He also caught a team-high nine passes for 140 yards and a touchdown in helping the Packers to a win over the Steelers in the Super Bowl.
Sitton was drafted the same year as Nelson but two rounds later. But he would find a spot in the starting lineup in his second year and not give it up for the next seven years. He was named to the Pro Bowl four times in his career, including three as a member of the Packers. Sitton was also a three-time second-team AP All-Pro. He finished with career by playing two years with Chicago and one year in Miami.
The induction will take place Aug. 31, 2023
