Draft Scout Jared Abbrederis News
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
12/09/13 - 2013 BURLSWORTH TROPHY WINNER: His football career is far from over, but the journey Wisconsin’s Jared Abbrederis took to the top was worth another look Monday. The senior wide receiver was named the winner of the Burlsworth Trophy as the nation’s most outstanding player that began his career as a walk-on in a ceremony in Springdale, Ark. He won the award over fellow finalists Max Copeland of Missouri and Trey Watts of Tulsa. “You think about the hard work that you put in through the years that brought you to where you are today,” Abbrederis said after accepting the fourth-annual award. “All those memories come back and you’re honored, blessed.”
A semifinalist in 2012, Abbrederis claimed the award following an outstanding regular season that saw him make 73 receptions for a career-high 1,051 yards and seven touchdowns. A consensus first-team All-Big Ten selection, he became the first Wisconsin wide receiver to earn first-team all-conference honors in consecutive seasons since Al Toon in 1983 and 1984. Abbrederis ranks in a tie for second all-time at UW with 23 touchdown receptions. He also ranks second all-time in receiving yards (3,110) and receptions (197). With one game remaining in his career, Abbrederis’ 3,110 career receiving yards rank him ninth in Big Ten history and eighth among all active FBS players. He became just the third player in school history to amass 1,000 receiving yards in a season and is the first at UW to record at least 800 yards in three different seasons. - Wisconsin football
