NFL Draft Grades: Do you like the Rashad Greene pick?

New, comments

How do you grade the selection of Rashad Greene in the fifth round?

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars waited until the fifth round to provide Blake Bortles a new receiver to work with, but got some quality value by snagging Florida State's Rashad Greene with the No. 139 overall selection.

Greene racked up 99 receptions for 1,365 yards and seven touchdowns in his senior season with the Seminoles and averaged more than 10 yards on 15 punt returns. He finished his career at FSU with 3,830 receiving yards and 29 touchdowns.

At 5'11, 182 pounds with a 36 inch vertical jump, Greene projects to be a contributor as a slot receiver for the Jaguars.

Some sites, including CBS Sports, had Greene rated as a second round pick, but the receiver was ranked No. 114 on Dan Kadar's list of the top 300 players in the 2015 NFL Draft class.

Greene earned First Team All-ACC honors in both his junior and senior seasons at FSU. So what say you, Jaguars fans?
