Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has come a long way from the fresh-faced California quarterback selected by the Packers with the 24th overall pick in the NFL Draft in 2005.

After backing up Brett Favre for three years, Rodgers became the team's starter in 2008 and ever since has shown himself to be one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history.

Rodgers has a ring from Super Bowl XLV (and was MVP of the game), has been the regular season MVP twice (2011, 2014), has been selected to the Pro Bowl seven times, became the fastest quarterback to ever reach 300 career touchdown passes and has set team and NFL records for a slew of other passer statistics.

Along the way, fans got a chance to watch him continue to grow, on and off the field. Here's a look back at the life and career of Aaron Rodgers.
