The Packers fear fifth-round WR Jared Abbrederis suffered a torn right ACL in Thursday's training camp practice.

Packers rookie Jared Abbrederis' special teams ability gives him a leg up in the battle for a roster spot.

Green Bay is searching for a replacement for Randall Cobb on both kickoff and punt returns. Abbrederis was an excellent college returner, and worked with the Packers' special teams in spring practices. Abbrederis will battle fellow rookie Jeff Janis, Chris Harper, and Kevin Dorsey for the No. 5 receiver job in camp.

Packers signed fifth-round WR Jared Abbrederis to a four-year contract.

Abbrederis was the 176th overall pick. He projects as an outside receiver in the pros but will have a helluva time earning meaningful snaps as a rookie in Green Bay's loaded receiving corps. Abbrederis can also return kicks and punts.

Packers selected Wisconsin WR Jared Abbrederis with the No. 176 overall pick in the NFL draft.

Abbrederis (6-foot-1, 195) earned draft evaluators' respect by shredding heralded Ohio State CB Bradley Roby for a 10-207-1 stat line last September. A former walk-on, Abbrederis did his best work at Z and X receiver as opposed the slot, leaving Madison ranked first all-time in career catches (202), and No. 2 in both receiving yards (3,140) and touchdowns (23). He was also an effective kick and punt returner. Although he created separation in the Big Ten, Abbrederis lacks ideal size, speed (4.50), and explosion (30 1/2" vertical), and will likely max out a sub-package wideout with special teams value. He'll have to compete for a roster spot in Green Bay.
