If Marquez Vadles-Scantling’s Hands Are Really Better This Year, Watch Out.
Training Camp stories are my favorite. Why? Well, sometimes, they provide a lot of truth honestly. Like a player who seems to be on the rise, they actually do level up. Then sometimes, we have the training camp player who doesn’t seem to amount to much when the bright lights come on for the game. In the case of this recent note about Marquez Valdes-Scantling, I would lean towards the former. Matt Schneidman, a Packers beat writer, who is with the team fairly often noted that MVS’ hands are noticeably better from last season. If that is in fact true, look out NFL.
MVS hands are noticeably better so far in camp. Do with that information what you wish.

MVS has all the skills in the world. The drops felt like they were between the ears for him. We’ve seen this before with Packers’ players too. Remember how bad of a drop problem that James Jones had? Davante Adams also struggled at times with drops. This isn’t new. And if MVS is the next one to emerge after a couple of bad years of drops, that’s going to be huge for Green Bay. He already led the NFL in Yards per Catch last season. Imagine what he can do if he holds on to the football. I would be very much here for an MVS breakout and the number of old tweets we would get to cycle through.
