Virgil Green   #88 TE

Height: 6-5   Weight: 255   Age: 29

Born: 8/3/1988 San Bernardino , CA

College: Nevada

Experience: 8th season

High School: Tulare HS [CA]









Draft 2011

Pick No.204

Selected By: Denver Broncos

Round: 7

Pick (Overall): 1 (204)

Pick Analysis: Green's an undersized, athletic, pass-catching tight end / H-back with big-play potential who doesn't bring much to the table as a blocker. Has good burst off the line and doesn't idle down in and out of his breaks but is susceptible to press coverage and doesn't exhibit great awareness against zone coverage. Possesses outstanding ball skills. Did not make a load of explosive plays in college but has a high ceiling here due to his speed and hands. Shows good effort as a blocker and could improve technique but lacks natural size and strength to excel in this area. Green could sneak into Day 2.
