Obscure Origins: Part 1 of 2

Recently, I created Packer alumni teams for each of the major colleges that have produced the most Green Bay players. Here, let’s take a look at the more obscure launching points for Packers. Below is a list of colleges that sent between 6-10 players to the NFL through 2015. I have limited the search to players who have played since 1950, but earlier Packer players for these schools are noted, too.
