Greene finished the 2014 season with 99 receptions, 1,365 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. He had 270 catches as a Seminole and scored 29 receiving touchdowns. He was also a decent kick returner, who scored two touchdowns returning punts in 2012.

One of the most impressive aspects to Greene’s resume is how his production grew from season to season. In his freshman season he had 38 receptions. In 2012 he had 57 receptions. In 2013 he had 76 receptions. In each progressive season he was given a larger role in the offense and his productivity increased.

More from NY Giants Draft

  • Good speed: He ran a 4.53 40 yard dash at the combine
  • Good vertical ability: He is a good red zone threat
  • Deep Ball receiver: Averaged over 13 yards per catch every season for a reason
  • High football IQ: He knows where he is on the field, drags his feet by the sideline and dives for the first down marker
  • He is a team player and a leader


  • Drops too many passes: This is a big red flag for a receiver, obviously
  • Not a great route runner: He has to show that he is more than just a go route, and deep post route receiver at the next level
  • Small frame: He may have good vertical ability and toughness, but he is not a physical receiver and can get bullied by bigger defensive backs in the NFL

Greene has an impressive resume, and is one of the most accomplished receivers Florida State has ever had. He will be a good receiver in the NFL but one could fairly question if he’ll ever be a No. 1 receiver. He could be an option for the New York Giants, who love to draft receivers and could use somebody to play in the slot.
