What scouts are saying:
"Balanced athlete with natural body control and gliding speed. Very good foot quickness at the line of scrimmage and in his breaks to release and create separation. Sharp plant foot to quickly change directions in his routes and show the quarterback his numbers. Subtle patience, footwork and burst to set up his moves in single coverage. Very good feel in his routes to catch defenders off-guard. Savvy moves before and after the catch, controlling his momentum well. Runs tough and decisive with deceiving body strength; bounces back up after hits. Quick hands and eyes to find the ball with natural adjustments and concentration in traffic. Slippery after the catch with excellent spatial awareness and finishing speed." — Dane Brugler, CBSSports.com
"Very productive in big games and at big times. Greene has the athleticism and quicks to get open and has a natural smoothness in his routes. He might get pigeon-holed into a slot position, but that might not be a bad thing. Greene needs more route polish but should be able to compete for snaps right away." — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
Fit for the Bears:
Greene is a player that any team in the NFL would want, regardless of its situation at wide receiver. He's an extremely productive receiver and was a leader on the Seminoles team. He doesn't have elite size or speed but still managed to be Jameis Winston's top target at Florida State. He may not seem like a receiver that could start right away for the Bears but Greene could be a steal for Ryan Pace in the middle rounds if the Bears don't address the receiver position in the earlier rounds.
