A.J. Green scouting report

A.J. Green WR Georgia

Ht: 6’4″

Wt: 212

Strengths:
Prototypical size for a true No. 1 receiver. Best asset is his hands; makes all the easy catches and has a knack for coming down with the ball in traffic as well. Elite leaping ability; a nightmare matchup for cornerbacks in the red zone. More than enough speed to stretch the field.
Weaknesses:
Suspended for four games in 2010 for contact with an agent. Missed three games with a shoulder injury in 2009. Not very physical; doesn’t use his size to his advantage as often as he could.
Comments:
Green is a truly elite prospect with very few holes in his game. He is about as polished as a 21-year-old receiver could be and he should make an immediate impact in the pros. His game compares favorably to Randy Moss – both in the good and bad ways. Like Moss, he is a tall receiver who has the speed to stretch the field. However, also like Moss, he isn’t very physical which means some of the more experienced cornerbacks in the league could push him around early in his career. That said, he’s still a game changer and should be a top-10 pick. There just aren’t many cornerbacks around capable of holding their own in a one-on-one matchup with someone who possesses Green’s size and speed. As a result he’ll attract a lot of attention from defenses even as a rookie.
