Jeff Janis | Wide Receiver | Saginaw valley State | 6'3" - 219 lbs.


4.42 in 40 yard dash

OVERVIEW
Also played basketball as a Michigan prep. Broke a finger on his left hand as a senior, causing him to switch to running back -- returned to the field with a cast up to his left elbow. Redshirted in 2009. Started 6-of-10 games played in '10 and caught nine balls for 130 yards (13-yard average) and a touchdown. Started Shockedf-11 games in '11, tallying 48-968-14 (20.2). Set SVSU single-season records for catches and receiving yards in '12 when he started all 11 games and piled up 106-1635-17 (15.4). Was Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Offensive Back of the Year in '13 when he totaled 83-1,572-14 (18.9) in 12 contests.

STRENGTHS Exceptional measurables and leaping ability -- will test through the roof. Accelerates into routes quickly and can separate vertically and uncover underneath working short-to-intermediate zones. Terrific production -- carves up lesser competition and creates chunk plays. Good red-zone target. Exceptional work ethic. Outstanding football character. Very passionate about the game. Has a 37 1/2-inch vertical jump, posted a 3.98-second 20-yard shuttle (fourth-best among receivers) and a 6.64-second 3-cone time.

WEAKNESSES Has very small, inconsistent hands -- will cradle the ball and use his body. Is not a nuanced route runner. Does not attack the ball in the air and will give up some break points. Not strong after the catch and will look for a soft landing spot. Can be fazed by traffic. Regularly faced Division II competition. Not a consistent blocker -- does not play to his size.

DRAFT PROJECTION Rounds 3-4

BOTTOM LINE A Division II standout with rare measurables and production, Janis must prove that he can translate his small-school success to the field against better competition.

Finally, my tall receiver. So sick of watching Stafford and Cutler lob up shit to their tall covered receivers and we don't have that option.

lol half those passes get batted down or intercepted anyways and even when they catch it they get tackled right away. With our super accurate QB we are way better off with receivers who can get a yard or 2 in front of the defender and pick up an extra 10 to 20 after Rodgers delivers a strike. Besides even if we do start throwing passes like that Janis isn't the guy for it Adams is.

Goodbye Myles White. Goodbye Kevin Dorsey. Goodbye Chris Harper. Ted Thompson will have to keep 6 WR's unless Abby or Janis totally flames out. Perhaps, they can sneak Janis to PS, but if he shows something they won't risk it.

Agree completely. Now, can we go 6 wide?

Holy crap this kid is a gem.

I wonder how much being white cost him, if at all? His measurables are fun to think about.

I think Kevin Dorsey can play.

This dude seems raw, might need a redshirt year, unless he can return punts. Then again you KNOW at least one of these guys will get injured.

He is too raw for the NFL. The weakness listed in his profile are major issues. Defenses will eat him alive until he toughens up.

KR or PS his two most likely options.

Nelson, Jordy
Cobb, Randall
Boykin, Jarrett
Adams, Davante
Abbrederis, Jared
Harper, Chris
White, Myles
Janis, Jeff

It is not the end of the world if they lose Janis off the PS to another team. Every year GB picks up another promising, speedy WR. He moves on and GB adds another one to the bottom of their depth chart the following year. If he makes the team great. If not I won't even think about him any more. If he turns into something special in a few years after he has had a chance to grow and develop, good for him. I don't mind it if he is learning while on the PS but I don't want to use slot on the 53 man roster for a 6th WR who is inactive every week and will not contribute.

I did hear Ted say you never know in referencing this logjam at WR. A couple injuries and all of a sudden a team can be in trouble. We will not be in trouble here, and I thought this Janis pick was indeed a steal. Especially with both Nelson and Cobb contracts coming up for monster money.
