    I'm interested to know who you think would be traded. I'd have to assume you're talking about Jordy, Cobb, or Boykin. I see it as very unlikely as TT doesn't like to trade away anyone and especially "homegrown guys"

    There´s no chance the Packers trade Nelson, Cobb or Boykin. With the receiving corps being extremely deep going into camp Thompson could shop one of the guys on the bubble. A trade like that could probably result in a late round pick as a team would get a chance to get a player before he hits the open market.

    Abbrederis was a steal. I was a bit disappointed when we (Jets) went with Jalen Saunders AND Shaq Evans instead of taking Abbrederis. Think he is just yet another GB draft day steal at WR. Between him and Adams with Nelson and Cobb, that's a four headed monster many will hate to go up against.

    It only matters if he can get open, which seems to be why he lasted as long as he did. There are plenty of guys who can run who don't make it at receivers because they can't run routes. There was a game where he faced a CB who's now a 6th round draft pick and he got shut down.I suspect that if Janis makes the team, it'll be because of special teams and maybe in a year or two he might be able to contribute against nfl corners. Maybe his top end speed and strength will allow him to return kicks and maybe he can tackle and be on kick offs and punts.

    If Abbrederis can stay healthy I´m convinced that pick will turn out as a steal. I´m worried about his concussion history though.

    I agree that Janis will have a hard time making an impact as a WR. It´s possible he could provide an impact as a kick returner, don´t know though why everyone seems to think it´s necessary to replace Hyde returning punts.
