Draft Rewind 2011: AJ Green, Cincinnati Bengals

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about AJ GREEN: Georgia, 6035, 211, 4.50. Junior entry. Three-year starter. Was suspended the first four games for reportedly selling a game jersey to an agent. A natural hand catcher with good focus. He extends to catch the ball away from the frame of his body. No blind spots. Can make the overhead circus catch as needed. A good athlete who is quick in and out of his breaks. Demonstrates rare quickness that may be more important than his speed. A polished route runner who has room for fine tuning his game. For example – doesn’t always come back to the ball and is not always crisp against a lower level talent. A wiry and strong build to compete for the ball in a crowd. Can adjust to the ball with good hip flexibility and knee bend. Has the speed and acceleration to eat up a cushion. Finds the ball quickly in transition out of route. Adjusts to the flight of the ball. Good body control. Catches the ball with the intent to break a tackle or make a defender miss. Can run routes off of motion. Snaps off a dig route or square in with suddenness. Extremely long arms for the position. A consistent competitor. Uses his tall rangy build to his advantage as a blocker on run plays. A three level receiver. Career stats: 166- 2619 yds, 15.8 ypr, 23 TDs. OSR:12/43. First round, top 10 selection. (A-34 3/8, H-9 1/4, VJ-34.5, SS-4.21).
