Mike McCarthy understands why a certain segment of the Green Bay Packers fan base loves wide receiver Jeff Janis so much. After all, the Packers head coach likes the 2014 seventh-round draft pick’s talent and potential as much as anyone.
But, McCarthy said Thursday at the annual NFL Scouting Combine, although Janis certainly made a splash in preseason, he needs to make a jump in the offseason and develop his raw football talent in order to be a contributor in 2015.
And McCarthy believes that’s going to happen.
“I think Jeff is going to take a big step,” McCarthy said during a nearly hour-long session at a hotel restaurant with reporters who regularly cover the team. “He’s got a big catching radius, and he needs to utilize it. Obviously, I think we all saw his vertical speed. He’s an extremely physical young man. He’s an Olympian in the weight room. He’s got a lot of raw skill, and I look for him to make that jump.”
“I thought probably after Thanksgiving, I thought Jeff really picked it up [in practice]. He was more comfortable, and so I look for him to take a step. He’s got to play with extension. That’s the one thing he has to do a better job of. But you can see it on the scout team, and at the end of the year he was running some really good routes. Really good routes.”
This may explain why the Packers haven't already locked up Randall Cobb to a long-term deal. If he walks, the team will lack experience in its receiving corps, turning to Davante Adams and potentially Janis to play big snaps.

Randall Cobb Playoffs vs. Seahawks
With Dallas intent on slowing Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb was given the run of the field last week and finished with eight catches for 116 yards while also running the ball once for two more yards. In the opener at Seattle, Cobb had six receptions for 58 yards and a score on nine targets. He's going to get his looks, even with a tough matchup.
