The Delaware product had a good start to the Senior Bowl and his last name already carries weight in Green Bay."In grading the Green Bay Packers’ positional units on defense in 2018 Preston Smith Jersey , the safety position is right near the top as one of the team’s biggest problem areas to fix this offseason. An early release of Jermaine Whitehead and mid-season trade of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix further depleted the team of depth as injuries took their toll on Kentrell Brice, Ibraheim Campbell, and other members of the secondary. There is little doubt that Green Bay will address safety this spring and one way they could do so is through the draft.And one way to add to the safety unit is a relative of NFL Hall of Famer and Packer legend Herb Adderley.That would be Nasir Adderley, a free safety from Delaware. Adderley’s grandfather’s cousin was the legendary Herb, a cornerback on the Packers’ first two Super Bowl-winning teams. Nasir has been a star in his own right at the NCAA FCS level with nine interceptions over the past two seasons for the Blue Hens.Currently, Adderley has been given a day-two grade from many scouts, but an impressive NFL Combine could vault him into the first round. He started off his Senior Bowl invite on the right foot this week, earning praise from NFL Draft guru Todd McShay as a “ball-hawking free safety.” At 5-foot-11 and 195 pounds, Adderley plays bigger than his size and can high-point a ball in coverage. Helping his cause is his versatility to play slot cornerback at the next level, after seeing plenty of one-on-one matchups as a collegiate player Color Rush Ka'dar Hollman Jersey , and special teams with experience as a returner and gunner at Delaware. However, as a pro in Green Bay, he would primarily be counted on to fill the deep half of the secondary once occupied by Clinton-Dix.Although he has somewhat of a thin build, Adderley stands out on tape for his physicality. In many ways, he brings the same aggressiveness that Jaire Alexander showed in Green Bay as a rookie. While Adderley may seek unnecessary contact while taking on blockers in pursuit of the ball, he is a force when he hits the ballcarrier. A high motor and ability to track down runners in the open field was also evident when watching Adderley as a senior.On top of his more-than-willing desire to tackle, Adderley has been reliable as a single-high safety covering center field. His ability to read and react quickly to cover ground and get to the intended receiver is a trait NFL teams will covet. Against North Dakota State, the FCS champion, Adderley’s area of the field was rarely targeted. And when he was? Adderley jolted the receiver as the ball arrived for an incompletion on one play and almost jumped a route in single coverage for an interception on another.With highlight-reel interceptions and an all-around skillset, Adderley would be an excellent piece for the Packers to begin building around at safety. With Josh Jones returning as a potential in-the-box safety Cheap Ka'dar Hollman Jersey , Green Bay could be scanning the market for more of an upgrade at the free position. While Adderley’s level of competition will be lower than other draft prospects in the latter end of round one and early part of round two, his ability should translate just as well to the NFL. After all, the Packers did very well when they selected another FCS safety in round two of the 2005 draft in Nick Collins. If the cards fall right, perhaps another small-school product and another Adderley will be making his name in Green Bay next season.Packers 2018 Prop Bets: Odds on Aaron Rodgers, NFC North, & Super Bowl LIII Prop bets have become one of the biggest ways to participate in sports gambling over the years, with sports books both in Las Vegas and online giving odds on just about anything a prospective bettor can imagine. With the 2018 NFL season almost upon us, let’s take a look at some of the bets that are available for fans interested in how the betting market views the Green Bay Packers.(Note that all odds are provided from the online sports book Bovada.)Team PropsFirst of all, we have overall odds on the team itself. Over/under total wins: 10Odds to win Super Bowl LIII: 11/1 (T-5th behind Patriots, Rams Ka'dar Hollman Jersey Womens , Eagles, Steelers)Odds to win NFC Championship: 7/1 (3rd behind Eagles, Rams)Odds to win NFC North: 31/20 (2nd behind Vikings at 23/20)Odds to make playoffs: 1/2 (-200)Notable is that the Packers’ over/under total on wins has remained the same since May, but the odds on either side have changed. While the odds favored the under slightly in May (-140 for under compared to +110 for the over), they have shifted to favor the over (-130 for over compared to even/+100 for the under).Aaron Rodgers PropsRodgers’ return from injury this year gives the NFL back one of its biggest superstars, and it’s no surprise that the two-time MVP is near the top of most prop odds involving quarterbacks. Here are a handful of odds involving Rodgers himself:Odds to lead the NFL in passing yards: 19/2 (4th, behind Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Philip Rivers)Odds to lead the NFL in passing touchdowns: 9/2 (lowest odds)Odds to lead the NFL in interceptions: off the boardThere should be no surprise that you can’t even get odds on Rodgers leading the lead in interceptions. He has finished in double digits only twice, in 2008 and 2010 Ka'dar Hollman Green Bay Packers Jersey , and the league leader has had no fewer than 18 picks in recent recorded history. As for touchdowns, though, Rodgers has surprisingly led the NFL only once, in 2016. He threw 45 during his first MVP year in 2011 but fell one short of Drew Brees’ 46, while his 38 in 2014 came up third behind Andrew Luck (40) and Peyton Manning (39).It’s also no surprise that Rodgers isn’t the favorite to lead the league in passing yards. In fact, he has never finished a season higher than fourth in that statistic, holding that spot in 2008, 2009, and 2016. Part of the reason for that is that he has regularly finished outside the top ten in total pass attempts.
