Notes: Runyan, who made 25 of his 26 starts at left tackle, was a two-time winner of the University of Michigan’s Hugh H. Rader Memorial Award, given to the Wolverines’ top offensive lineman. Runyan’s father, Jon Runyan Sr., also took home the award, making them the only father-son duo to earn the honor in school history. The junior Runyan almost cost himself his opportunity in Green Bay when he accidentally declined a call from the organization. “I declined a call from Green Bay, Wisconsin,” Runyan said. “I tried to call back and my call didn’t go through, and I had no idea what I just did.” Luckily for Runyan, the Packers called right back and the rest is draft history.
