Packers receivers coach Edgar Bennett gave his thoughts on second-round draft choice Davante Adams:

*Goes up and makes tough catches. Gets yards after catch.

*He's a complete football player. That's what stood out. He competes. Has good size and strength, can create separation.

*He made most of his opportunities, that's what it comes down to.

*He's a high character indiviedual, tremendous work ethic, mindset is right. Mentally he's ready as far as taking next jump. When he gets here he's got to continue to work.

*On tape you see a guy who can get open. See a guy with strong hands.

*Some similarities to James Jones, but they're different players. Jones was one of most physical tough receivers I've been around.

*Some of ways he was able to create separation on deep route (was impressive).

*His big wing span helps.

*He has outstanding vertical, 38, somewhere in that area.

*He's a very focused young man. Having that understanding, know you have to earn it, he did that, proved that in college. He has the right attitude.

*It's always exciting to add additional player that brings that competitive fire, edge to room, to go along with guys already in that room.

*It was a deep receiver class, just part of doing due diligence, having good feel for each and every guy.
