Ladarius Green, TE, Louisiana-Lafayette

Green was one of the most productive tight ends in college football last season due to excellent speed and great hands.

Although he comes from the tiny Sun Belt Conference, Green has some serious potential. He ran a 4.53 in the 40-yard dash, one of the best times at this position. Some may describe him as raw, but it all depends on what teams want to do with him. As a blocker, he will need to add muscle and improve his fundamentals. As a receiver, there's a lot to like, more than enough to get by as a pass-catcher. Green could become a serious nightmare matchup on defense given his height, hands and speed. He's not perfect as a route runner but he is still learning after all.

Ultimately, don't be surprised if you see a team reach a little and grab him in the second round instead of waiting until the third. His ability to be a difference maker in the short field and occasionally attack safeties deep will entice someone to give Green a shot. He's a project in the long term though and it's important to remember that.

Prediction: 1st Round

L Green would be excellent for the SF 49ERS, maybe 2 or 3 round? Man can run, great hands, route runing needs better coaching from WR coaches. He's ideal for WR not a TE.
