Analysis

Strengths

Has the ability to play outside and from the slot and did so in college. Creates leverage with his routes. Plus concentration over the middle and near sidelines. Can get on top of off coverage quickly. Aware of boundaries and usually makes pro catch with two feet down. Silky athlete. Hits accelerator out of breaks, creating separation. Has long speed to make defender pay on missed tackles. Has some elusiveness after the catch. Shows subtle usage of hands to help him get open. Adjusts to poor throws. No wasted motion in his routes. Scouts love his "quiet competitiveness."

Weaknesses

Thin frame. Play strength needs improvement. Not very competitive blocking. Has to get better at using body to shield defender from the ball. Allows cornerbacks to break back on the ball rather than run through him. Hand size and hand strength might be an issue. Had 7 drops his junior year. Must improve at selling all aspects of the routes. Will give routes away -- especially on intermediate throws. Scouts say he makes himself "too small" as a target. Can be outmuscled.

Bottom Line

Very productive in big games and at big times. Greene has the athleticism and quicks to get open and has a natural smoothness in his routes. He might get pigeon-holed into a slot position, but that might not be a bad thing. Greene needs more route polish but should be able to compete for snaps right away.
