Jeff Janis, WR/KR, Saginaw Valley State: Division 2

Packers, Round 7. I would like to see more of him before I write this report, but it looks like I will probably only see his Senior Bowl practices and game video. From the little I’ve seen of him, he looks like an adequate prospect, and someone who can probably be coached up, and the Packers definitely know how to do that. But there are just too many other talented WRs on the Packers for him to stick there. His best bet is to land on a practice squad and hope to develop that way.

All-Star Games: Senior Bowl.

Positives: Very good height and above-average bulk with a long wingspan. Runs with adequate quickness. Adjusts fairly well to off target passes. Fairly smart kick return decisions, and knows when to just take a knee. Tracks fairly well over his inside shoulder. Above-average track speed for the position, but very good for his size. Above-average upper body strength. Above-average vertical leap. Excellent lateral quickness and ability to change directions in Combine testing.

Negatives: Below-average hand size. Below-average hands as a receiver or returner when he has to adjust, and he consistently lets passes get to his body. Below-average routes, and is slow in and out of his breaks. Has a hard time getting off of physical cornerbacks and into his route. Doesn’t have very quick feet and doesn’t change directions well. Below-average vision on kick returns, and seems to run into his own blockers at times.

Projection: No need to draft.
