Thought this was good post-Senior Bowl.
A.J. Green lined up across from South team wide receivers this week and accepted the task of physically dominating his opponent at the line of scrimmage. His 6’1”, 200-pound frame allowed him to rock players off the line of scrimmage with his length and power.
He won’t be for every team, but Green is perfect for a scheme like those of the San Francisco 49ers or Jacksonville Jaguars in which size and strength at the line of scrimmage are key. As a player who flew under the radar before Senior Bowl week, Green leaves with a good amount of buzz.
The senior cornerback class was limited after injuries forced LSU’s Kristian Fulton (who also had a significant family issue, per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero) and TCU’s Jeff Gladney (knee) to drop out, and Green made the most of his opportunity to shine against an excellent receiver class.
Green’s stock is rising and might gain a top-100 grade after the combine.
