2014 NFL Draft Picks: Packers select Jeff Janis in 7th round

It's time to start getting super scared about Jordy Nelson, am I right?

With the 236th overall selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, the 21st pick in the 7th round, the Green Bay Packers have selected...

Jeff Janis, WR, Saginaw Valley St.

I was joking to Tex and Jason that we'd take a guy from Directional State University. I wasn't too far off. Saginaw Valley State play in Division II and have brought us Jeff Janis, an absolutely insane workout warrior.

You can see all of his combine numbers below, and they're super impressive. Normally I'd wonder why the Green Bay Packers have decided to select three wide receivers, but based on the guys they picked, it's entirely plausible that both Janis and Abbrederis were the best player available on the Packers' board when they were taken.

Janis' DII stats are, unsurprisingly, excellent. He finished his career with 4305 receiving yards and 46 TDs. He hardly played as a freshman, so that's mostly over three years. Crazy.

Combine results

Height: 6'3"

40-yard dash: 4.42 seconds

Vertical jump: 37.5"

Bench press: 20 reps

3-cone drill: 6.64 seconds

20-yard shuttle: 3.90 seconds

Seriously, those numbers. Good god.
