He logged 13 tackles, 2 assists, and made 6 stops. In coverage Greene had no pass breakups, no interceptions, and surrendered a disapointing QB rating when targetted of 142.1.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Can track the ball downfield and gets his head around when playing in a trail position, and Greene shows excellent ball skills when breaking on a route. He’s a plus tackler in run support as well.
  • Strong hands to make plays on the ball, effective blitzer who shows well-coached technique and awareness.
  • Has the change-of-direction ability to mirror underneath but did solid work out of press and off coverage.
  • Transitions well from coverage to close on the ball. Strong hands, quick reactions for the interceptions.
  • Willing and successful blitzing off the edge. Consideration for a move to safety with a combination of range and sure tackling.
  • Stout and feisty. Will engage, shed and securely wrap the ballcarrier. Very fluid hips, backpedal and change-of-direction agility.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Gets sloppy with his backpedal when playing off-man and seems to lack the instincts to close on the ball.
  • He’ll draw plenty of flags early on with his playing style. Greene is hesitant when facing the action in zone coverage.
  • Lacks ideal size and frame with limited measureables and short arms that render him helpless against bigger receivers.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
