Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Green Bay’s target distribution last season can be summed up as Davante Adams, then some other dudes.
    • Adams led the team with 149 targets, despite playing just 14 games.
    • Marquez Valdes-Scantling tied for 2nd on the team with 63 targets.
    • Allen Lazard ranked 3rd among WRs and 5th on the team with 46 looks -- despite losing 6 games to injury.
  • Lazard ran most frequently from the slot among Green Bay wideouts in 2020, but he did so on just 50.4% of his pass snaps. The whole corps moved around plenty, with Adams and MVS each spending about one-third of their snaps in the slot as well.
  • Rodgers profiles as a slot receiver. He spent 82% of his snaps there for Clemson last season. At 5’9, 212 pounds, he’s also built more like a RB than a typical WR. His new coach agrees.
  • HC Matt LaFleur said in mid-May: “He’s a well-built kid. He looks like a grown man. He has that big, running back, thick frame. Then you watch him run routes and he doesn’t move like most traditional running backs. We’re really excited about just the versatility that he could potentially bring to our offense and also his contribution on special teams.”
  • Rodgers didn’t fully break out until his final college season. He did emerge as the lead target -- accounting for 23.6% of team receptions, 24.4% of yards and 22.6% of TDs -- with Tee Higgins gone to the NFL and WR Justyn Ross out recovering from a back injury. Rodgers’ 6.4 receptions per game rank 5th in school history. His 85.0 yards per game rank 7th.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Rodgers doesn’t come with the most exciting prospect profile and lasted until Round 3, the 13th WR off the board. He’s not a great bet for immediate production. But he landed in a good spot for opportunity. Rodgers’ range of outcomes includes pushing past Allen Lazard for a top-3 WR spot. Of course, whether Aaron Rodgers returns will be key to the upside of such a spot. We’ll see where that story goes.

The Packers finally added a WR for Aaron Rodgers, grabbing Clemson’s Amari Rodgers in Round 3. Rodgers’ college career was disrupted by a March 2019 torn ACL. He unbelievably made it back for the 2nd game of that season -- just about 6 months after the injury -- but was noticeably limited. He bounced back to set career highs across the board in 2020 with 77 catches, 1,020 yards and 7 scores. All 3 marks led the Tigers. The 5’10, 212-pounder is at his best after the catch, with good vision, enough wiggle and strong contact balance. The concerns: he doesn’t create a lot of separation, has a small catch radius and is subpar in contested situations. Rodgers tested as an average athlete at Clemson’s Pro Day, including a 4.52-second 40 time. There was some pre-draft talk about him moving to RB, but the Packers announced him as a WR. Rodgers doesn’t look like a difference-maker in the NFL, but this is a solid landing spot as long as Aaron Rodgers sticks around. Amari has a chance to win the slot receiver job right out of the gate.
