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.

    • Colts wearing their color rush 
    • Maybe Nelson plays LT this week and balls out, then the problem is resolved, LOL.    IDK, depends on how the draft goes towards filling the pricey players at LT, DE, WR, and QB.  We might have to let one of Nelson or Leonard go.  We might get a 3rd round comp pick for Nelson's contract, 4th for Leonard's contract, and we could find a ILB in that round.  Don't have to make that decision for a while, and if Ballard can hit on those pricey position draft picks, we could pay both while the youngsters are playing on their rookie deals.   No, I doubt BB would pay either....and would take the comp picks.  But I don't think he is a great drafter given the number of picks he has had over the years.
    • I predict I will be at the texans @ colts game on Dec. 20th. 
    • he has one year left and a low salary, he probably will play that out and they make a decision after next season.  doubt he gets cut before then, he seems to have a strong work ethic and the potential is there to be a good edge rusher 
    • Yeah, Ballard & Reich should end Philip’s impressive consecutive games streak and sit him for a game, but not in favor of the rookie QB – I think I’ve seen this movie before, 3 seasons ago when Giants GM Jerry Reese & HC Ben McAdoo thought it would be a good idea to sit Eli Manning and end his 210 game streak, the longest in the NFL at the time but not to play their rookie 3rd round draft pick QB Davis Webb, but to start Geno Smith instead. They lost anyway, and Reese & McAdoo were immediately fired, and Eli started the next game and led the G-men to 1 more win that year.
