Draft Scout Jared Abbrederis News
08/26/14 - WR Jared Abbrederis (knee) was placed on reserve/injured by the Packers Tuesday Aug. 25).
08/05/14 - WR Jared Abbrederis suffered a season-ending torn ACL in his right knee in practice last Wednesday. The diagnosis didn't turn up until Friday after Abbrederis felt good enough to continue practicing Thursday.
Abbrederis, a fifth-round draft pick who joined the Packers as a fan favorite because of his home-state roots and excelling in college at Wisconsin, had a strong start to camp. He was in the mix for one of the three or four open receiver spots behind starters Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb and a viable candidate to return kicks.
"It's unfortunate," Abbrederis said. "Obviously, these things happen. You just look to the positives, try to find positives. (I'm) just ready to get to work – get surgery, get it fixed up and get ready for next year."
The Packers have yet to put Abbrederis on injured reserve, which would free up a spot on the 90-man preseason roster.
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Packers' picks: Round 5/176 - Jared Abbrederis, WR, 6-1, 195, Wisconsin...The first Badgers player taken by the Packers in the draft in 13 years was an overachiever after starting his productive college career as a walk-on. "I love Jared's versatility," Green Bay receivers coach Edgar Bennett said. "He's a savvy route runner." Besides putting up big receiving numbers his last two seasons, Abbrederis has appeal as an accomplished kick returner. - The Sports Xchange
04/29/14 - 2014 NFL Draft Wide Receiver: Jared Abbrederis, Wisconsin, 6-1, 195, 4.50...Slick receiver who has a knack for finding even small windows in a zone defense and if the window closes he is shows tenacity to go get the ball. Lacks speed that will invite any sort of special coverage, but will give fits to faster, more athletic defenders tasked with trying to cover him without help. Former high school quarterback who made team as a walk-on and coaches had to find a way to use his athleticism and competitiveness. Married, devout Christian with one son.
Frankly: Anybody out there remember Bobby Chandler (USC, Buffalo, Oakland)? He was a former high school quarterback who was 1970 Rose Bowl MVP as a wide receiver, then used his zone-busting skills to lead the NFL in receptions from 1975-77 with 176. He was a great guy who left us too soon, of cancer in 1995. Watching Abbrederis, I thought of Chandler. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
01/20/14 - 2014 SENIOR BOWL, WIDE RECEIVER: Arrow pointing up: Jared Abbrederis, Wisconsin...A former walk-on, Abbrederis is a balanced athlete with gliding speed and short-area quickness to create separation in coverage. Although he's not the biggest or fastest, he is a savvy route runner and reliable hands-catcher who projects as a dependable NFL target. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
