Finishing with 84 solos and 29 assists, defensive end Aaron Kampman totaled 113 tackles to set the club record for most tackles by a defensive lineman. End Ezra Johnson, with 86 solos and 107 total in '83, had owned the record. The Packers didn't start recording tackles until '75.

A.J. Hawk, however, led the team with 155. That was 14 more than runner-up Nick Barnett, who was No. 1 in 2003 (134), 2004 (162) and 2005 (club-record 194).

Hawk's total was the second best by a Packers rookie, trailing only Rich Wingo's 166 in '79.

Safety Marquand Manuel led the team in missed tackles with 15. The Journal Sentinel began tallying misses in 1999. Manuel's total is the fewest for the team leader in that eight-year period.
