Jaguars selected Florida State WR Rashad Greene with the No. 139 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.
Greene joins Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns, Marqise Lee and potentially Justin Blackmon in a receiver corps the Jags have aggressively addressed the past few seasons. Greene (5'11/182) was a first-team All-ACC pick as both a junior and senior, setting FSU all-time records in receptions (270) and receiving yards (3,830). He scored 32 TDs in college, including two on punt returns as a sophomore. Limited athletically for his skinny build, Greene ran 4.53 at the Combine with a 36 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump. Greene projects as a Doug Baldwin-ian slot receiver. He's at his best working the middle of the field. His arrival is trouble for Ace Sanders. May 2 - 1:53 PM

Florida State WR Rashad Greene "is a skinny, slinky runner who has a deceptive change of speed that he uses well to screw with defenders both before and after catch and even as returner," notes NFLDraftScout.com's Frank Cooney.

Greene skipped the Senior Bowl due to a banged up knee. At 5-foot-11 1/2 and 175 pounds, Greene clocked a 4.53 forty at the combine. "Great addition to locker room and the field, where he has experience at every receiver position," Cooney wrote. "Greene could become a pest for NFL defenses as a slot receiver as long as he holds up physically." Greene dropped only one of every 74 balls thrown his way last season. He was asked about playing in the slot at the combine: "It's very tough, you have to learn to get in and out of traffic, take hits, take on different types of linebackers and safeties. You have to learn to make your way through traffic, so you definitely have to have that toughness," Greene said.

ESPN's Todd McShay wrote that Florida State WR Rashad Greene is "able to gain separation because he's so sudden as a route runner, and he shows natural instincts versus zone coverage."

"Any time Jameis Winston needed someone to get open, Greene was able to find separation," McShay wrote. "His ball skills improved every season as well. He should be a solid No. 3 receiver in the NFL, working out of the slot. He has experience as a punt returner but doesn't project as one in the pros." If you watched Winston's appearance on Jon Gruden's QB Camp, you know that his confidence in Greene's hands and routes was unquestioned. NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah compares Greene to Broncos' WR Emmanuel Sanders, while Lance Zierlein comps him to Marvin Jones.

FSU WR Rashad Greene posted a low drop rate of 3.88 percent in 2014, according to PFF.

Of the top receivers last year, that would have only ranked behind Jarvis Landry's final season of college football. A great drop rate might not stay exceptional, but rarely will you see it turn into an issue. That is the takeaway here. Greene might not be the best at contested catches, but teams should not rely on a 5'11/182 lbs receiver who has not shown that ability to win in that area.

ESPN's Mel Kiper wrote that Florida State WR Rashad Greene is "productive and willing to make plays in traffic."

At 5-foot-11 1/2 and 175 pounds, Greene clocked a 4.53 forty. Greene dropped only one of every 74 balls thrown his way last season, a ridiculous percentage which showed why he was Jameis Winston's most trusted option. We expect Greene to be a nice value selection on Day 2. NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah compares him to Broncos' WR Emmanuel Sanders, while Lance Zierlein comps him to Marvin Jones.

NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock said Florida State WR Rashad Greene "gets overlooked a little bit too much."

"His production got better every single year. He's one of the best route runners in this year's class," Mayock said. "He's quick. He understands the game. He has good hands. What he needs to show this week is some speed. Everybody knows his quickness. I think most of the teams want to know what he runs that 40 in." Greene dropped only one of every 74 balls thrown his way this past season, a ridiculous percentage. We expect Greene to be selected on Day 2. NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah compares him to Broncos' WR Emmanuel Sanders, while Lance Zierlein comps him to Marvin Jones.

CBS Sports' Pat Kirwan passes along that Florida State WR Rashad Greene had the best drop rate he'd seen.

And you wonder why Jameis Winston loved him so much. Greene dropped only one of every 74 balls thrown his way this past season, a ridiculous percentage. We expect Greene to be selected on Day 2. NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah compares him to Broncos' WR Emmanuel Sanders.

Florida State senior WR Rashad Greene caught six passes for 59 yards in Thursday's 59-20 loss in the National Semifinal to Oregon.

Greene and fellow NFL prospect TE Nick O'Leary combined for merely seven catches for 63 yards. Coming into this matchup, the pair had combined for 142 receiving yards per contest. Not all of that can be blamed on Jameis Winston's struggles or the outstanding play of Oregon's defense: Greene didn't play well, and dropped at least one catchable ball. Greene, who might be the top route runner in this class, will attend the Senior Bowl. We expect Greene to be selected on the second day.

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.

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 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.
