ESPN's John Clayton: The No. 3 WR Will Be Jordy Nelson

From ESPN's John Clayton:

As for Jordy Nelson, he continues to be in a big battle against James Jones for the No. 3 receiver role, and I think Nelson will win it and have his best season.

Jones looked lost running routes early last season. I kept waiting for Nelson to move ahead of him, but then Nelson had a knee injury, and later a shoulder injury, and it never happened. Meanwhile Jones got better as the season went on. First he had his only 100 yard game at Tampa in week 9, and finished the season with at least 3 receptions in 5 of the last 8 games. 

I've been expecting Nelson to win the job for almost a year. Do you have a preference? Maybe these two are interchangeable right now.
