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.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that FSU HC Jimbo Fisher said senior WR Rashad Greene is expected to play against Syracuse.

Rashad was wonderful," Fisher told the Orlando Sentinel. "He practiced all day and he will be ready to go. The doctor has to see him afterwards to clear, but I don’t expect anything. Yes [he will play] that is what it looks like. I am not saying that 100 percent until they double check him after practice, but he was normal. That was old Rashad." The FSU prospect missed Monday and Tuesday practices, while recovering from a concussion that he suffered against Wake Forest. Greene was able to participate in practice the past two days, and if all goes well he should be cleared for Saturday.

ESPN's Todd McShay compares Florida State senior WR Rashad Greene to Jaguars WR Marqise Lee and gives him a Round 2 grade.

"Greene has below-average size for the wide receiver position at the next level, but he is a sudden athlete with the quickness to both beat press coverage off the line and separate from defensive backs in and out of breaks," McShay wrote. "In the Seminoles' comeback win over NC State on Saturday, he exploited the Wolfpack's inferior cornerbacks all game (11 catches, 125 yards, one touchdown). The handful of times in which NC State played tight man coverage, he was able to separate easily, and when NC State backed off, it created a game of simple pitch-and-catch between him and [QB Jameis] Winston." Greene has led the Seminoles in receptions in each of the past three years, ranking ahead of prospects such as Kelvin Benjamin.
Sep 30 - 6:04 PM

Florida State senior WR Rashad Greene hauled in 11 passes for 125 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 56-41 win over NC State.

Greene undoubtedly prefers Jameis Winston behind center for the Seminoles, though he's going to put up ridiculous numbers regardless of which signal-caller is throwing him the ball. Last week, Greene had nine receptions for 135 yards and a touchdown from Jameis Winston-replacement Sean Maguire against Clemson. He already has 35 receptions for 543 yards and three touchdowns in four games.

Florida State senior WR Rashad Greene hauled in nine passes for 135 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 23-17 overtime victory over Clemson.

Greene's biggest play came in hauling down a 74-yard touchdown pass from Jameis Winston-replacement Sean Maguire with 6:04 left to knot the score at 17-17. The game went into overtime, where Karlos Williams' touchdown run won it after the Seminoles stoned the Tigers on the first possession of the extra frame. Greene already has 24 catches for 418 yards and two touchdowns through three games.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote that Florida State senior WR Rashad Greene "lacks elite top-end speed," but "uses his short-area quickness to create separation."

That ability to create space is "probably the strength to his game," according to Brugler, "along with his dependable ballskills, toughness over the middle and savviness in his routes." Greene, who has averaged eight catches and nearly 150 receiving yards per game, was recently compared to Antonio Brown by an AFC personnel executive. "Greene is lean muscled and will probably never be 190+ pounds, but he does a better job than expected in traffic and the game appears to come very natural to him," Brugler wrote. Greene has a big matchup on deck against Clemson, of which Brugler added: "Look for Clemson defenders to try and take away Greene in the passing game, but that's easier said than done."

An AFC personnel executive compared Florida State senior WR Rashad Greene to Antonio Brown.

"I know Rashad Greene isn't the biggest guy, but he's an outstanding player," said the executive. "He reminds me a lot of Antonio Brown. He is so quick and has very strong hands." With scouts already calling Kelvin Benjamin a draft steal, Greene will not fly under the draft radar. "While Benjamin received most of the attention last year for the Seminoles, Green actually had more receptions (76) and yards (1,128), and while most people remember Benjamin for his winning catch in the BCS title game, it was Greene who led FSU with nine receptions for 147 yards in that contest," noted NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks and Charles Davis. "He is considered the top senior receiver in the country and a case could be made for him being the best overall."

Florida State senior WR Rashad Greene's huge game against Oklahoma State -- 11 catches for 203 yards and a touchdown -- has his draft stock on the rise, writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

He averaged eight targets and 81 receiving yards last season, but QB Jameis Winston, looking less poised than usual, looked to Greene early and often on Saturday. "The rocky start from Winston was made easier by Greene, who finished the game with 11 receptions for 203 yards and 1 score," Pauline wrote. "Most impressive was the way Greene found openings in the defense and worked his way back to Winston, who struggled with consistency most of the night. An average of 18.5-yards on 11 catches for a wide out not considered a vertical threat will also raise eyebrows." Greene is a potential Round 1 pick.
