Skyler Green - WR

 Skyler Green Grade: 3.43
 Position: WR
 Class: Sr
 School: Louisiana State
 Conference: Southeastern
 Ht., Wt.: 5-9, 192
 40 Time: 4.53
  Selected by: Dallas Cowboys
  Round 4, pick 28 (125 overall)

BIO: SEC Special Teams Player of the Year last season after averaging 13.3 yards on 27 punt returns, bringing one back for a score. Receiving totals were 32/268. All-Conference selection the prior two seasons with pass-catching numbers of 24/219/3 as a junior. Led the nation as a sophomore with an 18.5-yard average on 25 punt returns. Posted career-best receiving numbers that season with 48/519/5.

POSITIVES: Elusive ball carrier whose primary duties lay as a return specialist. Solid pass catcher who extends and looks the ball into his hands. Quick-footed, makes defenders miss and follows blocks anywhere on the field handling the ball. Always works to pick up as much yardage as possible.

NEGATIVES: More quick than fast and lacks top-end speed. Not tall as a receiver, which poses problems.

ANALYSIS: A game-breaking punt returner, Green projects as a slot receiver at the next level who will earn his wage on special teams.
