Wide Receiver: Jordy Nelson (2005-2007)
Jordy Nelson, while he had a great career at Kansas State, is better known for his career with the Green Bay Packers. However, his career at Kansas State, even after Bill Snyder retired for the first time, is still impressive.
In his final season as a Wildcat, Nelson had 1,606 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns. In his career with the Wildcats, Nelson had 2,822 total receiving yards and 20 total receiving touchdowns. Nelson is top three in receiving yards at K-State, trailing only father-son duo Kevin and Tyler Lockett.
As a pro in the NFL for 11 years, Nelson had 613 receptions for 8,587 receiving yards and 72 receiving touchdowns. He played 10 out of his 11 seasons with the Green Bay Packers and had a short one-year stint with the Oakland Raiders. He was only voted to one Pro Bowl but did win Comeback Player of the Year in 2016. Nelson retired in 2018.
We have a smaller receiver in Lockett and now a big-body receiver in Jordy Nelson. I would say this offense is coming together quite nicely.
