Janis: Separating Myth From Reality

If playing wide receiver was all about size and speed, Anthony Morgan would be in the Packers Hall of Fame and Donald Driver would be a footnote in franchise history. That’s why it surprises me when I hear so many relatively intelligent people continuing to insist Jeff Janis is only an opportunity away from being a star. I hope I’m underestimating Janis, but nothing I’ve seen...

Jeff Janis Could Be Answer to Packers’ Big-Play Problem

For the past two seasons, Jeff Janis has been a bit of a folk hero in Green Bay. But now, with their offense struggling, Janis needs to make his potential a reality. Last night in Denver, the Packers were destroyed by the Broncos 29-10 in a game that showed just how much Green Bay misses Jordy Nelson. Green Bay could barely pick up a first down, let alone make a big play. Aaron Rodgers...

Jeff Janis, Ty Montgomery Makes Green Bay Ridiculously Good at WR

Is it Time to Unleash the Jeff Janis?

Thursday night saw a lot of firsts for the Packers.  Julius Peppers had his first Lambeau Leap.  Davante Adams scored his first NFL touchdown.  Letroy Guion recorded his first sack as a Green Bay Packer.  One of the other firsts that I noticed, and one that excites me greatly, was the first career reception for 2014 7th round pick Jeff Janis.  Janis is an extremely athletic...

VIDEO: Jeff Janis lights up the St. Louis Rams for a touchdown

The Green Bay Packers already have a wealth of talented wide receivers, and it looks like the rich just keep on getting richer. Yesterday the Packers visited the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis to take on the Rams in an exhibition game, and we got a good glimpse at what rookie wide receiver Jeff Janis can do. In this highlight clip from the third quarter, Janis catches a nice pass...

Jared Abbrederis, Jeff Janis Could Force Packers to Keep Six Wide Receivers

The Green Bay Packers are loaded at wide receiver. Yes the team did lost James Jones to free agency this offseason and both Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson are headed for free agency but if we just focus on the 2014 season, Green Bay has more talented wide receivers than it knows what to do with.  Throughout the Mike McCarthy era, the Packers have generally kept five wide receivers...

Packers rookie WR Janis has 'always been a little bit of an underdog'

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- There is not much more that wide receiver Jeff Janis could have done to make himself worthy of being a mid-round draft prospect. Elite-level testing numbers at the Scouting Combine and dominating college statistics didn't matter as much as Janis thought they would, though, as he slid all the way down to the Green Bay Packers in the seventh round. Of course, the...

  The Green Bay Packers agreed to term with seventh-round pick WR Jeff Janis on Wednesday, per Aaron Wilson. This marks the second draft pick that the Packers have got under contract since the draft concluded on Saturday.
