5. David Sills V
West Virginia, 6-foot-4, 210 pounds
The Mountaineers #13 not only looks like Jordy, but like #87 made the move to wideout in college.
Here’s some Jordy Nelson trivia for you: Nelson was originally a safety. He made the transition to wide receiver in his sophomore year of being a Wildcat.
Do you know who else converted position? Six-foot-four former quarterback David Sills V made the move to wide receiver in his junior season.
And he’s thrived post-conversion, putting up 125 receptions for 1,980 yards and 33 touchdowns. When you watch Sills play you may get flashes of Jordy for more reasons than you may think. Sills’ frame is oddly reminiscent of Jordy’s, he’s only seven pounds lighter than Jordy and they both share a wiry look with pads on.
Sills also has an amazing catch radius because of those long arms and the ability to use his long frame when in the end zone. Sills put up a vertical of 37.5-inches, which compared to Jordy’s 31.0, showcasing that he can get up and possibly become someone who thrives on the boundary like Jordy used to.
Sills isn’t without his flaws though, a good amount of work needs to be done on Sills’ hands. He suffers from a bad case of the drops, but more years of working on his skills and technique could lead to Sills becoming a very intriguing option for the Packers.
