    Competition is a good thing, let the best receivers make the team.

    He absolutely destroyed CB Roby (Broncos first round pick) this past season.

    This could end up being a steal.

    Wow, three wideouts! I suspect Janis' best chance to make the team is as a Brett Swain-esque special teams player. The other guys seem like great additions.

    Woooh Got some Depth at WR. From what I saw on the Badgers Abbrederis looked pretty decent.

    We got Nelson,Cobb,Boykin,Adams,abbrederis and whoever else.

    I think TT did pretty decently this draft.

    Packers picked the best route running WRs in the draft. Should be a good fit.

    Very glad we have WR depth now. Having a bank of targets for Arod is never a bad thing. TT is a WR drafting guru.

    I think it will be interesting to see how many WRs will make the 53. Aside of the top four (assuming Adams will make the team) the battle for roster spots at the position seems to be one of the most intriguing going into camp.

    well, with as many injuries as we suffer, it sure wont hurt that we can pick and pluck from the practice squad if needed. I think our crop of young guys will make for an interesting battle at camp. Looking forward to it.

    Abbrederis and Janis both share the bad habit of body-catching on middle routes. It's an understandable thing to do since it puts the player in a better position to take a hit, but it is verboten in the NFL because it causes a break in stride and minimizes YAC and the odds of a breakaway. You're supposed to hand catch in stride, trust the QB is not setting you up for a big hit, but when the inevitable hits come then you take your medicine.

    Packers and Abbrederis have agreed on a four-year, $2.364 million deal. Abbrederis got a $144,560 signing bonus.

    That's the rookie salary scale at work.

    Abbrederis at pick 176 is a shade higher in total value than last year's 5th. rounders, perhaps as a result of CBA-specified base salary increases and/or adjustments due to the higher cap:

    Boyd, pick 167, $2.30 mil, $144, 560 signing bonus

    Hyde, pick 159: $2.34 mil, $178,108 signing bonus

    It´s even closer than I posted as I mixed up the number, the deal is actually for $2.364 million. Sorry, my bad.

    But yeah, not mouch room for negotiations with the rookie wage scale in place.

    There's a little more wiggle room for first rounders isn't there?

    Not really. Teams are only allowed to spend a certain amount of cap space in year one on the draft picks. In addition there´s limit on much signing bonuses a team can hand out as well as the total amount of money over the entire length of a rookie contract.

    The Packers are allowed to spend approximately $5.6 million in cap space towards their draft picks in 2014, spend a total of $7.5 million in signing bonuses and $29.8 million in total over the next four years on this year´s picks.

    The Packers official website should know that he was a fifth-round pick.
