by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com (8/16/14) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson returned to action and nearly scored a touchdown Saturday afternoon against the Rams in exhibition play.

With so many quality receivers to sift through on Draft Day, identifying the right ones can be difficult. Our Dave Richard shares his overview on the position with his updated tiers.
There is no longer any doubt that Jordy Nelson is the Packers' top receiver, and he proved it in a year where he didn't catch passes from Aaron Rodgers for the better part of eight games. Nelson's coming off a season with career-highs in catches (85) and yardage (1,314), numbers that arguably would have been higher had Rodgers stayed healthy. Without Rodgers last year Nelson averaged 63.0 yards per game with one score. With Rodgers those numbers ballooned to 101.3 yards per game and seven scores. The Packers will have their star quarterback healthy and ready to go this season, which should mean big things for Nelson, who will be in a contract year in 2014. We're definitely on board with him as a No. 1 Fantasy receiver – expect him to be someone's third-round pick in every draft you're in, taken soon after Dez Bryant gets snagged.
