FSU WR Rashad Greene will attend the Senior Bowl.
Greene joins West Virginia's Kevin White and Michigan State's Tony Lippett as a few of the top receivers attending the event. We are big fans of Greene's game, as he might be the top route runner in this class both on the outside and in the slot. Many teams will likely restrict his evaluation to the slot due to size. We expect Greene to be selected on the second day. Dec 23 - 11:54 AM

Florida State senior WR Rashad Greene received a +2.2 game score for his work against Georgia Tech, according to Pro Football Focus.

Greene caught seven passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns in the 37-35 win, with 65 of those yards coming after the catch. "If there was a player that really stood out on the FSU offense when it came to the passing game it was Greene, though TE Nick O’Leary had a fine game also," wrote Sam Monson. "Greene made a series of big plays in the game and was the main threat, notching the most targets, receptions, yards and touchdowns on the team." NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah compares Greene to Broncos' WR Emmanuel Sanders.

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah compares Florida State senior WR Rashad Greene to Broncos' WR Emmanuel Sanders.

"For a guy that's not that big (6-0, 180), he has the toughness to work the middle of the field," Jeremiah wrote. "His draft grade will largely depend on his measurements and how fast he runs in drills, but he's probably penciled in as a third-rounder by most evaluators at this point." Greene caught seven passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's win over Georgia Tech. "He's like Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders in that he's a clean route runner with good quickness and lacks great size," Jeremiah wrote.

Florida State senior WR Rashad Greene caught seven passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns in the school's 37-35 win over Georgia Tech.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris tweeted last night he will almost certainly have Greene ranked higher than he will be drafted. The NFL has an idea of the size/speed combination of "No. 1 receivers," and Greene will not fit that. However, the Seminole receiver is quite good with precise routes and a wide catch radius for his size. He can win inside and outside and will likely be selected on the second day.

An AFC executive said he worries about FSU senior WR Rashad Greene's lack of muscle.

"Rashad Greene is a nice player, but I worry about his lack of strength. He's probably going to play in the slot and I don't know if he'll physically hold up in there," the AFC executive said. Greene is one of the nation's best receivers and has caught 75 balls for 1,148 yards and five touchdowns in 2014. His lithe frame, however, worries evaluators. "His slight frame (verified 5-11 1/2 and 175 pounds) will give some scouts pause and ultimately could keep him out of the top tier of receivers in the 2015 draft class," noted NFL.com. "He contemplated coming out last year but returned to work on his game. His route-running is among the best in college football."

Florida sophomore CB Vernon Hargreaves III will not shadow FSU senior WR Rashad Greene.

Hargreaves is one of the top corners in the country, and you will be hearing all about him this summer. However, few corners actually prefer to shadow opposing receivers, especially ones that also work in the slot (like Greene). Jameis Winston has tended to lock on to Greene and Nick O'Leary this season, and expect to Florida attempt to bait Winston into interceptions with underneath coverage.

FSU senior WR Rashad Greene caught eight passes for 106 yards in Saturday's 20-17 win over Boston College.

Greene left the game briefly with an arm injury, but was able to return. As per usual, he acted as a safety blanket for Jameis Winston. This was Greene's seventh game with 100+ receiving yards. At only 5-foot-11, 175 pounds, he isn't as big as some of the more heralded prospects in the nation, but he's consistently shown an ability to work his way open with his precise routes and quick movements. On the season, he's caught 75 balls for 1,148 yards and five touchdowns.

FSU senior WR Rashad Greene caught four passes for 53 yards in Saturday's 30-26 win over Miami.

Greene was coming off a career-best 13 receptions, but was held to just four catches on Saturday. Miami played him tough and forced quarterback Jameis Winston to find other outlets in the mad scramble of a comeback. Greene's been incredibly consistent this season and this marks just the second time all season that Greene's been held beneath 60 yards. It also tied a season-low for receptions. Greene's only 5-foot-11, 175 pounds and while he's very skilled at running routes and using quick steps to get open, when he's faced with bigger DBs he will occasionally be rag-dolled out of the game.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler praised FSU senior WR Rashad Greene's ability to get open.

Greene "may be dinged" for his slight build (5-foo5-11, 175 pounds) in draft discussions, but Brugler wrote that "he is so savvy with his routes and knows how to manipulate defenders, creating room to work." Jameis Winston's favorite target showed this ability repeatedly against Virginia, catching a career-high 13 passes for 136 yards and a touchdown.

FSU senior WR Rashad Greene caught 13 passes for 136 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's win over Virginia.

Greene didn't catch anything longer than 22 yards, but a struggling Jameis Winston hit him with a 22-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter and targeted the senior early and often. This was Greene's third game with 11 or more receptions. This season, Greene's made 71 catches for 989 yards and five touchdowns. Greene isn't a physically imposing receiver at just 5-foot-11, 175 pounds, but he's a dependable target and works well in the middle of the field.

ESPN's Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl noted that FSU senior WR Rashad Greene's slight stature might be a concern for NFL teams.

Greene is listed at 5-foot-11, 175 pounds. The ESPN analysts said that "long-term durability" might be an issue, citing the fact that Greene's history is already checkered with injuries. They're referring to Greene's concussion earlier this season against Wake Forest and an Achilles injury that kept him out of four games last year. "He's not going to outmuscle defensive backs in jump-ball situations, either, and he can get pushed around coming off the line, which is why he'll have a harder time lining up on the outside at the next level," the analysts wrote. Despite these caveats, they still think he "excels at getting open quickly. He changes directions well, and he's a sneaky hand fighter who uses defenders' momentum against them." This season, Greene has caught 58 balls for 853 yards and four touchdowns.

FSU senior WR Rashad Greene caught all eight of his targets in Saturday's victory over Notre Dame, according to Pro Football Focus.

Greene caught hauled in eight passes for 108 yards and a touchdown in the win, marking his fifth 100-yard game of the year. "Though he popped up on both sides of the field to make catches, Greene did most of his work down the middle collecting 79 yards on four catches between the numbers more than 10 yards downfield," wrote Ben Stockwell. The site graded Greene out as a +1.7 in the contest.

FSU senior WR Rashad Greene caught eight passes for 108 yards and a touchdown in the school's

Jameis Winston trusts Greene so much, and it is easy to see why. Greene is winning from the outside and inside, and quick breaking routes and long developing routes. He might not possess first-round size or athleticism, but Greene is a top-50 talent and will produce in the NFL.

Florida State senior WR Rashad Greene's "lack of size and bulk is a question mark for the NFL, but his production and dependability speaks for itself and will likely land him in the top-100 picks."

"Greene lines up all over the field and does his best work in the slot where he can manipulate the middle of the field and use his sudden footwork in space. His lack of size and bulk is a question mark for the NFL, but his production and dependability speaks for itself and will likely land him in the top-100 picks," Brugler wrote. The FSU prospect has hauled in 44 receptions, 683 yards (15.1 yard average) and 3 touchdowns halfway through the season. In 2013, Greene finished with 76 receptions, 1,128 yards and nine scores. Brugler notes that Greene "uses his short-area quickness and reliable hands to finish catches and be a threat with the ball."

Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher compares Florida State senior WR Rashad Greene to Derek Jeter.

"Greatness is measured to me with consistency and performance over a long period of time and that’s what he is about," Fisher said. "He makes all the big plays when you have to, but the rest of the time you’re talking about somebody else all the time. He doesn’t go get the spotlight. He carries himself with tremendous professionalism, represents his organization in the classroom, off the field, on the field unbelievably." Similarly to Jeter, Greene is a quiet leader. "I consider myself a workhorse," Greene said. "I do a lot of work and just keep going. All the fame and attention doesn’t really matter to me. I’m more concerned about my teammates and myself getting better and just making sure we win. All the other stuff, I feel like pretty much will take care of itself." Through the midway point, the FSU prospect has hauled in 44 receptions, 683 yards (15.1 yard average) and three touchdowns.
