Nelson doesn’t have the longevity of many other receivers http://www.packerslockerroom.com/authentic-antonio-morrison-jersey , but his peak production makes him an all-time great."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareShareJordy Nelson’s peak years have gone underappreciatedPatrick Gorski-USA TODAY SportsJordy Nelson’s career was probably too short to get in to the NFL Hall of Fame, which already has a backlog of worthy players, and is voted on by a group of people who shouldn’t be trusted to pick out matching socks. But, while Nelson probably does fall short of enshrinement, it’s probably a closer call than most people realize.There are several analysts out there scoffing at the idea of Nelson as a Hall of Famer, citing his lack of First Team All-Pro selections, his relatively small number of career touchdowns, and other deficiencies in his counting stats that you would expect from a player who had his career cut short. The problem with this approach is that there is more to a player than longevity; there is also peak value. Sabermetrician Jay Jaffe created a system for measuring a player’s worthiness for the Hall of Fame in baseball. His system, known as JAWS, attempts to account for and give credit to players who produce good value for a long time, as well as those who produce stellar value for over a shorter time frame. After all, a player who dominates for a shorter period can Geronimo Allison Jersey White , in many instances, be more valuable and memorable than a long-term stat-compiler. JAWS breaks players into career WAR and Peak WAR, and averages them together. It then compares the aggregate number to certain established Hall of Fame benchmarks.We don’t have a decent version of WAR (yet) in football, but the principle is still a good one. Nelson will obviously not have great overall counting stats, and while we should not ignore them entirely, we should weight his peak value appropriately. The fact of the matter is that Nelson was, from 2011-2016, no worse than the third-best receiver in football. Looking at Football Outsiders’ primary advanced metrics, Nelson finished in the top three in DYAR four times over those six season, and he lost one entire season (2015) to a torn ACL. On a per-play basis Nelson was almost as good, ranking first in DVOA in 2011 and no worse than eighth in any other season. Football Outsiders’ metrics are not the final word on receiver play, but consider that by more conventional metrics Montravius Adams Jersey , Nelson accomplished some pretty astonishing feats. Over the last 20 years of football, there are only three receivers with at least 300 targets who have pulled in over 65% of their targets for over 13.5 yards per catch. The other two are Brandin Cooks and Tyreek Hill. Nelson is the third, but he has maintained these levels with nearly double the targets of Cooks.If you drop the threshold for catch rate to 63%, all you do to the list is add Marques Colston, Julio Jones, and Ed McCaffrey (and, oddly, Patrick Crayton). Some people like to hold Aaron Rodgers against Nelson, citing the advantage of playing with an all-time great and, in his earlier days, of having outstanding teammates. However, this is often the case for great receivers Aaron Ripkowski Jersey White , and for those who doubt Nelson’s contributions to the Packer passing game, you merely need to look at Aaron Rodgers splits in the pre and post-Nelson eras. Take special note of the 2016 season as well, when Nelson returned after his injury. If Aaron Rodgers made Nelson’s career early, there is a compelling case that Nelson helped make Aaron Rodgers’ career later. The fact of the matter is that Nelson’s peak was on par with many of the all-time greats, and that peak is underrated by many for various reason. No one combined efficiency with big play ability like Nelson, and while longevity will ultimately doom his case, another year or two on a healthy ACL would have made him a no-brainer for Canton. In the Packer pantheon, he is no worse than the fourth best receiver in team history behind Don Hutson and James Lofton, but right there with Sharpe, another great player with an exceptional peak who saw his even shorter career undone by an injury. Nelson won’t get proper consideration for the Hall, but don’t let anyone tell you he shouldn’t be close. Green Bay has plenty of options for slot receivers already, and they could get even more in the draft at the end of the month.The Green Bay Packers need a plan at slot receiver. While pretty much every other starting job on the roster is settled Womens Jermaine Whitehead Jersey , what the Packers do in the slot will be a fascinating saga to watch over the course of spring workouts and training camp.Plenty of players already on the team could contribute there. Each of the Packers’ top four receivers — Davante Adams, Geronimo Allison, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Equanimeous St. Brown — have experience in the slot. Jake Kumerow does as well. Add in tight end Jimmy Graham, who is less of a blocker and more of a big slot receiver anyway, and you have lots of big players to contribute.In addition, the 2019 NFL Draft provides some exciting options. One player we’ll learn about shortly has a diminutive frame, but exceptional athletic ability. Numerous other options like Ohio State’s Parris Campbell, Ole Miss’ A.J. Brown, and others could also come into play early on the second day of the draft.In short, there are already no shortage of options; the question now is what head coach Matt LaFleur and his staff choose to do once the season rolls around.Packers keeping their options open in the slot | Packers.comWith Randall Cobb gone, the Packers are looking inside and outside the organization for players who can get separation from the inside of the formation. However Womens Brett Favre Jersey , LaFleur's past experience and some of Brian Gutekunst's comments suggest that a bigger body is what they're looking for there.Report: Packers ‘really interested’ in UMass WR Andy Isabella | Packers WireHowever, the interest in Isabella goes counter to the idea of lining up bigger players in the slot. Since Ted Thompson got the GM job, the team has never drafted a receiver shorter than Cobb (5-foot-10 1/4). Isabella is an inch and a half shorter than that, but he does have ludicrous speed (4.31) and good workout numbers in other areas.Edge rusher Preston Smith reaching for 'high ceiling' with Packers | Packersnews.comSmith has played in all 65 possible games in his four-year career (including a playoff loss to the Packers in 2015), and that string of steadiness is one of his biggest strengths. However, he's looking to become a true premier edge rusher, moving beyond the label of being solid and dependable.4 most underrated signings in the second wave of 2019 NFL free agency - SBNation.comTwo former Packers slot options show up on this list: Cobb for his deal with the Cowboys and Jared Cook for his contract in New Orleans.Burglars steal $100K in Magic the Gathering cards from Bothell board game café | KIRO-TVHere’s hoping the thieves feel the Wrath of God upon them.
