The Second-Year Player that I am MOST Excited About

There has been a lot of talk in Packernation about second year players. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Davante Adams, and Richard Rodgers all made an impact last season and if they take a leap this year, could be special. Adams in particular has Aaron Rodgers raving after OTA's, and at 6'2 and 216 pounds, Adams could add yet another receiving threat - this time, throughout the season.

We've been asking Packernation about NFC North division rivals this week. One of the most important reasons that teams try to institute new "wrinkles" into their offense is to try to throw their division rivals off the scent. There is a certain familiarity that comes from meeting a team twice each year and using different players in different ways helps nullify the advantage that such familiarity may give a defense. Plays that have not seen the field cannot show up as tendencies on the film. (more…)
