Interview with Jared Abbrederis at 2014 Senior Bowl

By Charlie Campbell - @draftcampbell

One of the Senior Bowl's most consistently impressive wide receivers was Wisconsin's Jared Abbrederis. Abbrederis was the Badgers' leading receiver the past three seasons and was the big play element used to stretch Big Ten defenses vertically. He had 78 catches for 1,081 yards with seven touchdowns in 2013.

Abbrederis showed his quickness and route-running in Mobile by consistently gaining separation from defensive backs. Abbrederis may not go in the first two rounds, but he could be a value pick that becomes a weapon as a slot receiver and returner in the NFL.

WalterFootball.com caught up with Abbrederis to discuss his Senior Bowl experience and the draft process.

How has it been working with the Falcons' staff?

"It's been good. I think for the staff its hard for them to coach up your game because they're trying to make sure you know the plays and making sure you get depth. I think that's the biggest thing, getting depth and knowing where you're supposed to be. So that's been the main coaching points that they've given."




Your route running, quickness and hands led to your production in college; are those the attributes that teams are telling you have them excited?

"Definitely. Those are my strengths. I think along with that is knowledge of the game, understanding coverages, knowing where to be at the right spot at the right time. Things like that. That's been the feedback, but you still have to keep working on your craft. You can't be complacent."

You've been doing lots of special teams work in practice. Is that something you're looking to do in the NFL?

"I love doing punt returns. That's my favorite. If I get a chance to that I'll take advantage of that. Special teams is really important and a third of the game, so you have to be willing to do that and I'd be excited to contribute there as well."

Your program and offense has sent a lot of teammates to the NFL in Russell Wilson, Montee Ball, Nick Toon, Peter Konz. Have you sought them out for some advice for the draft process?

"Yeah I talked to Nick the other day. I talked to Bradie Ewing a lot as well. Those guys are giving me some feedback and things to be aware of and just to enjoy the process. It's been good to have guys who've been there before and done it."




Who are some of the teams you've met with here in Mobile?

"I feel like I've met with everyone. I can't name one team that I didn't."

Are there any teams that stick out as showing more interest than others?

"I couldn't say at this point. It's hard to tell."
