A.J. Green, WR, Georgia

Green is a physical specimen at 6'4' and 212 pounds. Combine those tools with 4.38 speed and great hands and what you have is a can't-miss prospect. Green needs to bulk up in the weight room as he makes his way to the NFL, but he is just 22 years old and that should come. Although leaving after his junior year, the wide receiver has a ton of experience and it will help his NFL cause that he played in a pro-style offense at Georgia.

In his first season with the 'Dawgs, Green hauled in 56 passes for 963 yards and eight touchdowns. His numbers were not quite as impressive in 2009 without Matthew Stafford throwing the football to him, as he made 53 receptions for 808 yards and six scores. Green was suspended for the first four games this season due to selling a game-worn jersey, but he still posted career marks in receptions (57) and touchdowns (nine). He caught multiple touchdowns on three different occasions, including against Auburn.

Green is a playmaker who can do anything with the football. He is NFL-ready right now, and if he adds more muscle he could be a Pro Bowl performer sooner rather than later. He is the best receiver in the 2011 class ahead of Julio Jones, whose stock is also sky-high. Anything lower than a Top 5 overall selection in the upcoming draft would be a surprise, and Green would even be a possibly at No. 1 overall to the Panthers if they did not have serious holes all over the football field.

Prediction: 1st Round

This guy is an absolute monster. He will catch anything that is thrown his way, he has great speed, and i were to compare him to an NFL player it would be Randy Moss in his first season with the Patriots. Not the best route runner, but can go up for the ball, tremendous hands, exceptional leaping ability, and deep threat potential. He will go to the browns.
