According to Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel,  Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson has stood out so far in training camp.

“If wide receiver Jordy Nelson hasn’t been the best player on the Green Bay Packers’ practice field the last two weeks there certainly haven’t been many better,” wrote McGinn.

Nelson received plenty of praise from his receivers coach Edgard Bennett.

“Wow!” Bennett said Tuesday. “This guy just continues to improve. He is an elite receiver.”

Bennett believes Nelson is a difference maker.

“He has those three ‘S’ words: size strength and speed,” said Bennett. “This guy is a difference-maker.

“You know, it’s easy to say something like that. But when you watch the guy work and what he puts into it, then you can see it.

“Now we have to get to the games and let the games speak for themselves.”

Packers offensive coordinator Tom Clements says Nelson is a great player.

“He’s been outstanding,” said Clements.  “He’s a great player.”
