According to ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky, seventh-round WR Jeff Janis "showed up regularly" during team drills at OTAs and minicamp.
Janis is pretty well buried behind Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Jarrett Boykin, and Davante Adams, but each of the former three are entering contract years, giving Janis forward-thinking opportunity. At 6'3/219, he drew Nelson and Eric Decker comparisons coming out of Saginaw Valley State. Janis is worth a flier in Dynasty leagues. He ran 4.42 at the Combine with a 37 1/2-inch vertical.

Packers signed seventh-round WR Jeff Janis to a four-year contract.

Janis wowed at the Combine by running a 4.42 forty at 6-foot-3 and 219 pounds. The small-school product out of Saginaw Valley averaged 18.9 YPR and reeled in 14 touchdowns as a senior. Janis is unlikely to see the field much as a rookie if he sticks in Green Bay's loaded receiving corps, but he's someone to watch.

Packers selected Saginaw Valley State WR Jeff Janis with the No. 236 overall pick in the NFL draft.

Janis (6-foot-2 7/8, 219) was a decorated wideout in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC), posting 83 catches for 1,572 yards (18.9 YPR) and 14 touchdowns as a senior. He turned heads at February's Combine, clocking 4.42 in the forty with a 37 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-3 broad jump. Janis offers upside based on athleticism and size, but must improve his reliability as a receiver and is facing a massive jump in competition. A shoo-in Hall of Famer according to SportsWunderkin's Davis Mattek, Janis is someone to monitor in Dynasty leagues.
