Bears selected Rutgers OLB Khaseem Greene with the No. 117 overall pick.
Greene (6-foot 3/4, 241) earned Big East Defensive POY honors as both a junior and senior. A weak-side 'backer, Greene paced the Scarlet Knights in 2012 tackles (125) and forced fumbles (6) as the lynchpin of Rutgers' No. 4-ranked defense. Greene ran 4.71 at the Combine with a 1.62 ten-yard split and did 17 reps on the bench. He plays faster than the forty time indicates with sideline-to-sideline range both in coverage and run support. Greene fits quite well in the Bears defensive scheme and projects to the weakside. Sat, Apr 27, 2013 01:06:00 PM

Rutgers LB Khaseem Greene visited the St. Louis Rams on April 15.

Greene is an intriguing fit in St. Louis, where former Tennessee Titans head coach Jeff Fisher is in charge. Fisher's been known to have small but rangy linebackers in the past, which fits Greene. Greene is a former safety and is best suited to be a weak-side linebacker in a 4-3 defense. He's expected to be a top 60 selection in this year's draft.

The Steelers Digest's Bob Labriola reports the Pittsburgh Steelers has had visits with Rutgers LB Khaseem Greene and Fresno State S Phillip Thomas.

Greene's visit is the one that's most intriguing simply because he's not a typical Steelers linebacker. Greene is largely considered a weak-side linebacker in a 4-3 defense. He flows very well to the ball and is very rangy, which may be why the Steelers are interested. The team needs to get faster on defense and that's what he would bring.

Russ Lande of National Football Post writes teams are split on Rutgers OLB Khaseem Greene.

Lande adds that teams question Greene's instincts, which is interesting. Greene spent a lot of time as a hook defender in Rutgers' Cover 2 scheme and he did well. He flowed very well to the ball and looks to be a solid talent at weak-side linebacker. It'll be interesting to see where he goes in the draft because if he slides, a team could be getting a steal.

The NFL Networks' Bucky Brooks lists Rutgers' Khaseem Greene as the third best OLB in the 2013 draft.

Greene comes in behind Georgia' Jarvis Jones and Alec Ogletree and ahead of Kansas State's Arthur Brown and UConn's Sio Moore. The Rutgers product fits best in a weakside linebacker spot behind a four man front and has plenty of range in coverage or to beat ball carriers to the edge.

Rutgers senior LB Khaseem Greene accounted for 1.5 tackles for loss, including a half sack, one fumble recovery for a touchdown, two quarterback hurries, and eleven total tackles Friday against Virginia Tech.

Greene, as usual, was all over the field, chasing down ball carriers from behind and finding the ball to convert turnovers into big plays. We would like him to attack the run with more aggression, but Greene's comfort and mobility in coverage will definitely be coveted in the NFL, perhaps as a top-50 pick.

Rutgers LB Khaseem Greene will attend the Senior Bowl.

Greene, a former safety, is one of the top weakside linebackers in the class. Few prospects can cover as much ground against the run or in coverage, along with bringing force on contact. Expect the Rutgers product to be a top-50 selection.

Rutgers and Virginia Tech will meet in the Russell Athletic Bowl on December 28.

This is going to be a fun one. Obviously Virginia Tech junior quarterback Logan Thomas will play in possibly his final collegiate game, but he will have a tough opponent in a very talented Rutgers defense. Senior outside linebacker Khaseem Greene is an absolute stud and makes plays all over the field, and junior Logan Ryan may be preparing to declare. Senior defensive tackle Scott Vallone is another intriguing option and redshirt sophomore running back Jawan Jamison may be leaning towards declaring as well.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl considers Rutgers senior OLB Khaseem Greene a "sure second-rounder."

He gets even more specific and states that it wouldn't be surprising if Greene works himself into the top-50 selections. Weidl cites Greene's athleticism, which "makes him exactly the kind of linebacker NFL teams are looking for right now." We wholeheartedly agree.

Rutgers senior OLB Khaseem Greene was sidelined in the first half of Saturday's game against Pitt with an apparent head injury.

Greene leveled the Panthers punt returner but appeared to suffer a possible concussion. He needed help to get to the sideline and remains there with helmet in hand. The senior is an absolute sideline to sideline monster and should at least be a second-round pick.
