Games watched: vs Oklahoma State, vs Notre Dame, vs Boston

 

The Good:

 

Smooth, fluid runner. 

 

Underrated deep speed. Natural play-maker. 

 

Quick, explosive out of his breaks. No wasted steps.

 

Decent elusiveness after the catch. Can make people miss.

Lines up all over the field.

 

Adjusts to the ball.

The Bad: 

 

"On-ground" receiver. Meaning he's not a guy who you want to rely on for jump balls. 

 

Very skinny. Durability concerns. 

 

Plays small. Can beat press regularly. 

 

Doesn't shield the ball with his body allowing defenders to knock it out. 

 

Sometimes runs laterally or backwards after the catch. 

 

The Ugly: 

 

Lots of drops in his last year. Mostly when contacted. You'll see way too many of these:

Bad hand strength, which relates to the above.

 

Conclusion: 

 

Overall, Greene is a pretty meh prospect. He can definitely be a starting quality slot receiver in the nfl and be a regular 700-800 yards a year guy, but probably not much more. Most of his problems are ones that I consider "fixable".
 
Projected Round: 3
NFL Comparison: Robert Woods, Buffalo 
 
Up next: Tyler Lockett, WR, Kansas State

All I know is that if the NY Giants draft Green and Dorial Green-Beckham, then their receiving corps would consist of:

 

Green, Green-Beckham, and Beckham Jr.  It would be cool--just for that reason. Also they would be really good.

Do you mean he can't beat press, or was that supposed to be in the Good part of the analysis?

And I thought Robert Woods had good hands. Does he have a lot of drops?

Meant can't. Woods' hands at OK. There are no exact comparisons, I just thought he was the closest. Maybe Marqis Lee.

I think his ceiling is Reggie Wayne. He isn't a guy that's going to burn the D for 70 yards like Hilton or Antonio Brown, but he can be the go to guy on 3rd downs and has sure hands. Won't always make splash plays, but he'll make plays. Definitely see a little Reggie in him. Better finesse and skill player than athlete.

Definitely wouldn't say he has sure hands.
