Florida State senior WR Rashad Greene is a potential Round 1 pick, according to CBS Sports' Derek Stephens.
Greene was named to the All-ACC team in 2013 after finishing with 76 receptions, the third straight season he's led the Seminoles in catches. He's fourth in school history with 171 catches. "At only 178 pounds, there are merited concerns about Greene's durability at the next level, but he's fast, extremely quick, fluid in and out of cuts and can make big plays with the ball in his hands, prompting some to mention DeSean Jackson as an NFL comparison," Stephens wrote. "Though explosive and possessing a knack for getting open, Greene relies too heavily on his chest and body to catch the football and has dropped a few easy ones as a result." Jul 11 - 5:15 PM

FSU's Rashad Greene ranks as Mel Kiper's top senior WR.

"Nobody who watched most of FSU's games last year would say Benjamin was the team's best receiver. That was Greene..." Kiper writes. Stanford's Ty Montgomery, Louisville's DeVante Parker, Baylor's Antwan Goodley and UNLV's Devante Davis round out the top five at the position.

Florida State junior WR Rashad Greene and junior T Cameron Erving will return for the 2014 season.

This is huge news for Jameis Winston, as Greene is his most reliable receiver and Erving has started for the Noles at left tackle for the last two seasons. Greene specializes in yards after the catch and likely would have been a second day selection. Erving projected to the same area.

Florida State junior WR Rashad Greene had nine catches for 147 yards in a 34-31 win over Auburn in the BCS National Championship game.

Greene (6-foot-0, 180 pounds) often played in the shadow of 6-foot-5, 234 pound teammate Kelvin Benjamin, but he entered the game as FSU's leader in receptions (67) and receiving yards (971). The Seminoles star could stand to spend another year on campus. For one, 16 underclass wide receivers have already declared for the draft, even before Benjamin's decision is announced. Secondly, Greene would be one of the top returning WRs in the nation next season. He could put up huge numbers as Heisman winner Jameis Winston's favorite target; especially if Benjamin, as expected, declares for the pros.

Three scouts from NFL teams will be on hand to watch Florida versus Florida State.

The Detroit Lions, New York Jets, and Oakland Raiders are the three teams in attendance. There are plenty of draft-eligible prospects on both sides of the ball, but the best might be the one that has missed most of the season: Gators defensive tackle Dominique Easley.

Florida State junior WR Rashad Greene caught four passes for 90 yards and two touchdowns against Boston College on Saturday.

Greene now has five touchdowns on 19 catches this season. The long and lean receiver won at the catch point on a 56 yard bomb today. He'll continue to shine with Jameis Winston at quarterback.

Florida State junior WR Rashad Greene has scored 18 career touchdowns on 139 touches.

That means Greene averages 7.7 touches per touchdown, which is ridiculous. Compare that to Clemson junior receiver Sammy Watkins, who also has accounted for 18 touchdowns but on 252 career touches. Greene will benefit from having another passer with an NFL future in Jameis Winston.

Florida State junior WR Rashad Greene will miss several days with a finger injury.

Greene left Monday's practice and did not return. The junior is arguably the school's top receiver and should be a consistent target for new freshman starting quarterback Jameis Winston. Greene caught 57 passes for 741 yards and six touchdowns in 14 games last year. We expect the Seminoles to rely on their running game, featuring senior James Wilder Jr. and Devonta Freeman.

Florida State sophomore WR Rashad Greene continues to impress Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl.

Greene is "silky smooth" and "savvy within stem to gain leverage and create separation" with his routes. The sophomore will not be int he 2013 NFL Draft, but keep the Seminole in mind next season as he could come in right behind Marqise Lee and Sammy Watkins.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl "loves" Florida State sophomore WR Rashad Greene as a prospect.

Greene does a "great job of climbing the ladder and maintaining balance with the landing to pick up extra yards," according to Weidl. Along with Marqise Lee and Sammy Watkins, Greene is a name to watch in next year's crop of junior receivers.

Florida State sophomore WR Rashad Greene caught six passes for 125 yards and two touchdowns Thursday against Virginia Tech.

Greene scored the game winning touchdown on a short crossing route that he took 39 yards untouched for the score. His frame and straight-line speed could remind many of Desean Jackson, but Greene also has a history of fumbles.

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher has removed sophomore Rashad Greene from punt return duties after the WR coughed up three fumbles this season.

Only eight players in the country averaged more punt return yards than Greene, to go along with two returns for a touchdown. Sophomore defensive back Tyler Hunter appears to have moved into the starting spot. The latter has only returned two punts for four yards this season.

Florida State receiver Rashad Greene (Achilles) returned to practice after missing three games and is day-to-day.

Greene was having quite a freshman season before missing the last three games. He was 12-163-1 against Wake Forest in his last outing and he had scored at least one TD in each of his five games. A healthy Greene would greatly benefit the Seminoles, who have three ACC games remaining. They are at Boston College on Saturday before home dates against Miami and Virginia.
