Earl Dotson transferred from Tyler Junior College to Texas A&M Kingsville in 1991 and turned into an All-American tackle in 1992. He was selected with a third round choice (81st overall) by the Green Bay Packers in the 1993 NFL Draft. Dotson wore this jersey for road games during his rookie season and it features the team's diamond 75th anniversary patch. Dotson saw action on special teams in 13 games during his rookie season and had most of his second season wiped out by a dislocated shoulder. The following season was a turning point for Dotson as he established himself as a starter. Dotson would go on to play his entire 10-year career with the Packers and play in two Super Bowls. Overall, he played in 120 regular season games with 88 starts to go along with 12 playoff games. He earned the respect of his teammates as evidenced by his nomination for the Ed Block Courage Award in 2000 for playing through a back injury that season.
