This experience, combined with the veteran presence of Pro-Bowler Jordy Nelson and the ever-dangerous Randall Cobb will give defenses fits in 2015. Add to that the up-and-coming Jeff Janis and a healthy Jared Abbrederis and the Packers receiver corps will force defenses to “pick their poison”. We will highlight all these guys in successive installments of the series.  Continue reading

Who Will Be The Packers Toughest Opponent In 2015?
