Rasheem Green, the highly talented defensive end who recorded 10 sacks last season for the Trojans, did his part to showcase his abilities in front of nearly every NFL general manager and scouts as he looks to solidify his standing as one of the better defensive prospects in the upcoming draft.
At the combine he clocked the following measurements:
- Height - 6’5”
- Weight - 275 lb.
- Hand size - 9 7/8”
- 40 yard dash - 4.73 seconds
- Vertical jump - 32.5”
- Broad jump - 118”
- 3 cone drill - 7.24 seconds
- 20 yard shuttle - 4.39 seconds
Many looked at Green as a potential sleeper coming into the combine - with his performance, though, he may have just vaulted himself into the backend of the first round of the NFL Draft.
To say that Green impressed those in attendance would be an understatement:
Rasheem Green has a lot of upside - so much that a team may jump at the opportunity and snag him somewhere near the end of the first round. That’d a steep price for a player who many say still needs some seasoning before he’d be able to consistently contribute to an NFL defense. Green has all the potential but, as it has been detailed by some, there are worries about whether or not he declared too early.
It’ll be interesting to see how Green’s stock develops as the draft season progresses. USC’s Pro Day is set for March 21 and it will provide him with one of his last opportunities to further show teams what he has to offer.
