The former Kansas State Wildcat has built a unique chemistry with QB Aaron Rodgers, and regardless of who else is on the field, those two always seem to connect when the Packers need a play.
Nelson has not simply flipped a magic switch this season, but rather has slowly become one of the preeminent targets in all of football.
His receptions yards have increased in each of the last three seasons. In 2011, Nelson recorded an astounding 68 catches for 1,263 yards and 15 touchdowns.
His ability to make tough catches over the middle earned him a spot on the field, but Nelson is more than capable of being a vertical threat deep down the sidelines.
Yes, Green Bay has one of the best quarterbacks in all of football in Rodgers, but to credit Rodgers as the sole reason for Nelson's success would be a disservice to everyone involved.
