NFL Network’s series The Top 100: NFL’s Greatest Players will air the segment featuring players ranked from No. 50 up to No. 41 at 8 p.m. CT Thursday. The segment will include former Packers linebacker Ray Nitschke.

Players are “presented” during the series by notable figures in sports and entertainment, and Nitschke will be presented by former Green Bay teammate Jerry Kramer.

The 10-part series counts down the 100 greatest players in NFL history, as ranked by a Blue Ribbon Panel of football experts that includes current and former GMs, former players, coaches, historians and Hall of Fame voters.

Other Packers who have been featured thus far in the series were cornerback Herb Adderley (No. 64), quarterback Bart Starr (No. 57) and offensive tackle Forrest Gregg (No. 54).
