Scouting Report: Strengths
- Greaney accelerates quickly and possesses good straight-line speed. He shows solid ball-tracking skills and body control downfield, able to adjust to the off-target throw.
- He’s a coordinated hands catcher who does a nice job digging out low throws. He’s very good with the ball in his hands, a violent runner after the catch, and often able to fend off defenders with a straight arm.
- Has smooth body control, reliable hands and natural ball skills to adjust to off-target throws and make impressive catch.
- He can move the chains and has the skills to stand out in the red zone with sneaky foot speed and long stride to top producing tight end.
- He’s at his best facing the line of scrimmage, when he’s able to use his body to box out defenders. Greaney runs well after the catch and will work as a blocker downfield.
- Good body control to reach back for the pass behind him. High-points passes and has good vertical, timing and hand-eye coordination in jump-ball situations.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- While Greaney has the athleticism to be a catch-and-run threat, he never seemed comfortable catching, gathering, and transitioning to a runner.
- He’s largely a non-factor downfield, and he had issues with drops when running behind a defensive back and tracking the ball. More quick than fast, he won’t always be able to run away from NFL defensive backs.
- He’ll give enough effort to get in the way, but because he doesn’t get any push in the run game, he won’t be used in-line early in his career.
