With the loss of James Jones in free agency, the Packers will most likely be looking to add a wide receiver in this year's draft. The wide receiver class is also exceptionally deep this year.
Jared Abbrederis would be an excellent addition to the Packers for a number of reasons.
One, he is probably the best route-runner among all of the wide receivers in this draft.
Two, he has an excellent track record, if one looks back on his career as a Badger. Abbrederis had 202 receptions for 3,140 yards and 23 touchdowns. He should had even better stats, as he was wide open on a number of occasions last season, only to see quarterback Joel Stave miss him on the throw.
His best moment came when Wisconsin played Ohio State, and Abbrederis was matched up against cornerback Bradley Roby, who is considered one of the better corners in this year's draft. Abbrederis had 10 catches for 207 yards and a touchdown against Roby.
Abbrederis was also a good return man for the Badgers.
Chris Landry also likes what he has seen of the former walk-on at Wisconsin:
Jared Abbrederis. I like him. I think he's a really good X-receiver. Can be a three or a four in the league. He's smart, and he runs good routes. He's got good quickness.
He's sneaky vertical. Listen, he's one of the many guys, maybe as many as 16, 17 or 18 wide receivers that I think can be starters eventually in this league out of this draft class.
