They Said It: Mike McCarthy on undrafted rookie receiver Montay Crockett: “I mean Crockett jumped out yesterday. You know we have a correction segment, but it’s important to keep highlighting the things that you’re looking for and he was on it a couple times today.”
Davante Adams on undrafted rookie receiver Michael Clark: “You can see that like me coming in, a lot of the real finesse basketball movements and I see it and I love it. He has a lot of potential.”
McCarthy on young receivers getting work with Aaron Rodgers: “If you watch practice closely, you’ll see there’s a lot of communication between the quarterbacks and particularly the perimeter guys during team drills. Our young receivers thrive on the opportunity to get in there when he’s in there, and definitely want to make plays when they have that opportunity.”
