2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Virgil Green



Strengths:
  • Athletic receiving threat
  • Good speed
  • Catches with hands
  • Red zone target
  • Effective after the catch
  • Durable 3-year starter
  • Hard worker



    Weaknesses:
  • Lacks strength
  • Height is not ideal
  • Very limited as blocker
  • Not an accomplished route runner
  • Played in unconventional Pistol offense
  • Did not compete against top competition

    Summary: Virgil Green has the athleticism to impress an NFL team enough to get him drafted earlier than his production and overall skill set suggest he should be taken. Teams looking for a secondary receiving threat to challenge defenses down the field are going to be intrigued by Green. Other teams needing more blocking ability will shy away. He can certainly add strength and work on that aspect of his game, but he is a project in that area.

    Player Comparison: Ben Troupe. This is a natural for me. Both guys are athletic vertical threats with limited blocking ability. Troupe was just a little bigger coming out of Florida, and wound up being a bust after being taken No. 40 overall in 2004. Teams are going to reach for Green as well, but in a later round which should give him a better chance to develop instead of being thrust into a role as a starter.
