Overview

Green is one of the finest receiver prospects in the last few years. Has the ideal length, refined route-running skills, hands, and big-play ability to become one of the league's top players at the position. Displays tremendous acceleration and fluidity for a taller player. Is a consistent vertical threat because of his outstanding combination of deep speed, height, ball skills and leaping ability. Very productive underneath gaining separation or catching the ball in a crowd. Occasionally has difficulty with bigger, more physical defensive backs and would like to see more attitude when run blocking. Was suspended once by NCAA but character appears to be solid. Green carries an early first-round grade, likely in the top 10.

Analysis

Strengths

Green possesses prototypical height, a wide catch-radius, and very good speed. A true vertical, big play threat. Explodes off the line. Eats up cushions immediately. Doesn't idle down in-and-out of his breaks. Displays the ability to uncover against zone. Can haul in the poorly thrown pass and wins most jump balls. Productive over the middle. Very competitive.

Weaknesses

Only possesses adequate bulk. Can be harassed at the line by physical press-man corners with good size. Bigger defensive backs will compete with him for 50-50's. Would like to see more sustained effort and physicality while run blocking. Suspended by NCAA for selling a jersey.
