From youngest to oldest, tallest to most Pro Bowls, here is the Green Bay Packers roster broken down by stature


Wanna feel old?

The Green Bay Packers famously lost Super Bowl XXXII to the underdog Denver Broncos on Jan. 25, 1998, a crushing defeat in Wisconsin sports history.

The average Green Bay Packer on this year's team was born right about that same time.

After cutdowns and the addition of two new waiver claims, the Packers had an average age of 25.0 years, the youngest of any NFL team this season.

Who's oldest? Who's youngest? And what other nuggets can you find inside the context of this year's 53-man roster? Let's explore.

Green Bay Packers offensive tackle David Bakhtiari (69) blocks Minnesota Vikings linebacker Eric Kendricks (54)  during the third quarter of their game Sunday, January 1, 2023 at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wis. The Green Bay Packers beat the Minnesota Vikings 41-17.

Green Bay Packers
  • David Bakhtiari, offensive tackle, 31 years, 11 months
  • Preston Smith, linebacker, 30 years, 9 months
  • De'Vondre Campbell, linebacker, 30 years, two months
  • Dallin Leavitt, safety, 29 years, 0 months, three weeks
  • Rasul Douglas, cornerback, 29 years, 0 months, 0 weeks

The Packers' two-time All-Pro tackle arrived in 2013 and has a career 130 games under his belt. NFL rosters have an average of 3.3 players on them that are 32 years or older, so the Packers are a major outlier here. Although, there are two teams with nobody older than 30 years old.

The Bengals' oldest player is Ted Karras (age 30), but the roster has an average of 25.4 years. The Colts have two 30-year-olds on their roster in long snapper Luke Rhodes and center Ryan Kelly, but the roster average is 25.3 years.

With six players at age 32 or older, the Jets are tied with the Panthers for most in the league.
