Eric Green   CB   Virginia Tech
Strengths

Eric has excellent size, speed, strength and quickness for his position. He is an excellent bump and run CB. He has leadership skills and makes the players around him better. I love his quickness and I have no doubt he will impact some lucky teamís special teams unit in his first year. Right now, he is a player with 1st round talent that seems to be under the radar.

 

Needs to Improve

Eric needs to put away the camouflage uniform and stop playing hide and seek.

 

Talent Board Round  2
This kid is going to be an excellent CB in the NFL. He will help a team right away because of his quickness, speed and strength. He has the maturity to continue to learn his techniques and will become a core player for his team. When I look at Eric, he reminds me of Ty Law. Same body type, strength, quickness and brains. Eric has first round talent, but because everyone is so wild about the juniors who have come out, players like Eric are in stealth mode. You go ahead and pick your special junior CB in the top ten or top fifteen -- I will pick Eric in the 2nd and I bet he beats them all to the Super Bowl and the Pro Bowl.
