My take
A.J. Green is a dynamic, outstanding football player. He has ideal size at 6 foot 4 211 pounds, long arms, phenomenal hands, silky smooth route running, and unbelievable body control. One of the biggest, most overlooked qualities of a great receiver, is their courage to go over the middle and not get alligator arms and make the catch. Green has this and he will make the spectacular catch consistently. Every game he is in there are a couple plays where he looks like he is on a higher level then everyone else. When I was watching his film I didn’t want it to end because it was so entertaining. He was suspended this season for selling his own autographed jersey. Aside from this one hiccup, there are no known red flags concerning his character. If I was Carolina, I would cringe on the thought of passing him and going with the bigger need (defense). There is no way he falls past Cleveland at #6, I expect Cincinnati to snatch him up, allowing them to dump Terrell Owens or Chad Ochocino, or both.
