18. Jordy Nelson
“I could be off base here but I seem to remember both Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams being considered reaches at the time and they both worked out pretty damn well,” adapt313 reminisced. The Reddit user was absolutely correct in his assessment because Nelson was a relatively obscure second-round pick who endured a tough rookie season in Green Bay. But he turned things around in style.
Nelson won a Super Bowl in Wisconsin and spent a total of 10 seasons with the Packers. He was also a one-time Pro Bowler. Furthermore, Davante Adams was also a wide receiver with low expectations upon his shoulders. However, he performed at a strong level and quickly became a fan favorite in Green Bay. They made him the ninth selected receiver in 2014 but he outperformed many above him.
