Scouting Report: Rasheem Green, DE

Green is a player who may be a bit of a projection, but the talent is undeniable and his upside could make him an intriguing pick.

NEPD Staff Contributor: Jeff Fidler

Let me first apologize for not getting these out yesterday. Jeff has worked hard on these reports, so not getting them edited and posted earlier is not cool on my end. Sometimes the real job just gets in the way. What made it really crazy was that I was not on a computer or able to look at my phone at all yesterday. I can’t remember the last time I was completely disconnected like that. On one hand, I did find myself wondering what, if anything was going on outside my little world, but on the other, it was a nice change. Anyways, instead of Two for Tuesday, it is going to have to be Two for Wednesday. It doesn’t have the same ring to it, but the content is just as good. Make sure you check out both reports. Also, we have some awesome stuff coming up really soon. I have a top 150 I am about to release and I know Jeff has a special series planned as well. I of course have been putting all my time into my big board series and I should be dropping the first position early next week.



 

Background

  • Born 5-15-97
  • From California
  • 5 Star Recruit

 

 

Strengths

  • Looks like a Sunday Player. 6’4+/275 & looks like he could add some muscle to his lower have. 33+ arms.
  • Pass Rush – At times, on the edge & inside, looks like more than a handful. Nice jump, Powerful strides, active hands & a motor that won’t quit. He’ll use a long arm, pin his mans arm, swim-arm/over, chops & a rip move. Lots of potential off the edge w/ his size (ability to add more muscle), length & power. Can work down the & shows good lateral movement.
  • Run Game – At times sets a nice edge to seal off the outside. Anchors down & uses his length well. Can/will disengage to make a play w/ half his body or disengage completely. At times, inside, will get underneath his man to blow up a play.
  • Versatility & Motor – Can & Will line up outside/inside to take advantage of slower IOL’m. Pressures off the edge & inside. Motor let’s him impact the game from sacks & pressures to PD & FF. Very good engine that keeps going.
  •  Upside – Young player that has his best football in front of him. Has Youth, Traits & Motor. Looks the part & flashes something nice. USC didn’t help him by putting & keeping him inside so much.

 

 

Concerns

  • Lower half stops moving to often & his play is d.o.a. Too many snaps inside? Frame could handle a little more muscle in his lower half if truly needed.
  • Loses sight of the action around him from constant QB pursuit.
  • Overall looks like a 1-2 year project that needs some body work, pass rush refinement & a little work in the run game.

 

 

Summary

Green is a project & def needs time to develop but the goods are there. He has the body, tools & motor to succeed. USC did him 0 favors by keeping him inside that often in my humble & unqualified opinion. Green could be very dangerous as a full time edge player that rushed inside on select plays. His size, length & power are formidable now. Imagine his overall game after 2 years of development & training?

    the latest Walter’s mock draft on Walter football.com :

    1st:Kolton Miller OT

    2nd:mike Hughes CB

    2nd:Josey Jewell ILB

    3rd:Kyle Lauletta QB

    4th:Chase Edmonds RB

    6th:Joesph Noteboom OT

    There was no 7th round for some reason.

    I only agree with the Lauletta and Edmonds picks.

    I would be happy with the Patriots getting Rasheem Green in the 3rd or 4th round. I feel like with a little time and development Rasheem could become a beast.

      Agree this guy has good potential for rush edge player. Would have liked to see some run def clips of like caliber. I’ll go looking hope he’s not one dimensional.
