Green Bay Packers receiver Jordy Nelson has put together a phenomenal offseason in his third year, demanding attention with his play in organized team activity practices and minicamp.
Passes stuck to his gloves. Defenders couldn’t keep up. Any ball in his vicinity seemed catchable.
As quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his bag of offensive toys prepare for what the organization hopes is a lengthy playoff run, Nelson looks ready for a bigger role.
“Jordy has had, by far, his best offseason,” receivers coach Jimmy Robinson said. “He’s feeling so comfortable out there, that he’s making a ton of plays.”
He split time with James Jones in the slot last year, but that could change if he can carry this over into camp and beyond. He could be a nice, later round pick in your draft.
