Jeff Janis is a very special talent, and the team was able to see that, when Janis took a slant pattern and burned the entire team up the sidelines for a touchdown. Well in an online interview ESPN Packers writer Rob Demovsky was asked if Jeff Janis was a lock to make the 53 man roster, and his answer was simple.
Demovsky: After what Jeff Janis put on film in St. Louis, there’s no way the Packers can cut him and hope to slide him through to the practice squad. He’d get snatched up on waivers in a heartbeat. The one thing you can’t teach is speed, and the rookie seventh-round pick has it. He’s a lock for the roster after that 34-yard touchdown catch and run against the Rams.
I have to agree with him, Jeff Janis is a special talent, and I would not be surprised to see him make an impact soon for the Packers.
