David Bakhtiari who was born on September 30, 1991 is an American professional football player. After playing college football for the Colorado Buffaloes, he became an offensive tackle for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL).

The player's hometown is San Mateo, California. He comes from a middle class background. In high school, he was a member of football and lacrosse teams. David's parents' names are Karl and Debbie. The Bakhtiari family patriarch is a real estate businessman. The Packers star also has a brother, who plays for the Tennessee Titans. His name is Eric.
Despite being ranked as only a two-star prospect after his high school journey was over, Bakhtiari received offers from colleges in Colorado, Utah, and Washington. David decided to commit to the University of Colorado, where he joined Colorado Buffaloes. He was part of the team for three years.

David was offered and accepted a 4-year, 92-million-dollar contract with the team, which included a 30 million signing bonus.
After the team's starting left tackle was injured, Bakhtiari replaced him in the game against the Arizona Cardinals. Since then, the player has started every game at left tackle. He became the first team's rookie to do so since 1978.
In 2016, David signed a four-year contract extension. His total career stats are 128 games started.

David's wife is an entrepreneur and a former volleyball player. In June 2022, Shebby announced online that she and her husband were expecting their first baby.
