Wisconsin WR Jared Abbrederis position coach at Wisconsin, Chris Beatty, said several NFL scouts and coaches have called Abbrederis "one of the best route runners in the draft."
Abbrederis famously annihilated first-rounder Bradley Roby in September for 10 catches, 207 yards and a touchdown. "Roby is a great player," Beatty said. "Jared made him look average on that day. I mean, the guy couldn't keep up with him." Abbrederis is lost in the shuffle a bit amidst a deep WR class, and his measurables (6-foot-1, 195 pounds, 4.50 forty) aren't off-the-charts. However, he's a low-floor prospect who should stick. "He's one of those guys who pays attention to every little thing in the meeting," Beatty said. "He's a film guy, and he's been in a pro-style offense for four years, five years. He knows what those routes look like -- he's run them over and over. So he knows what comebacks look like, where sometimes the spread-offense guys don't have that background."
