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 8-of-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.

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.
