Kansas City Chiefs Scouting Report: Rashad Greene


The Kansas City Chiefs have to upgrade the wide receiver position with at least one or two of their selections in the 2015 NFL Draft. Lucky for them this year’s crop of wide receivers is top notch and the team should be able to grab themselves a few good receivers. If the Chiefs decide to go after a wide receiver in the second round, Rashad Greene out of Florida State is someone worth looking at.

Rashad Greene was a member of the Florida State Seminoles for all four years of his college career. He was a member of the team during three ACC Championship seasons and the year the Seminoles won the National Championship in the 2013 season.

During his four years at Florida State, Greene put up impressive stats. He caught 270 passes for 3,830 yards and 29 touchdowns. He also had back to back 1,000 yard seasons in 2013 and 2014.

The Kansas City Chiefs added Jeremy Maclin in free agency, but still could use someone in the second wide receiver spot. As we’re all aware by now, both Dwayne Bowe and Donnie Avery are not in Kansas City anymore, so that currently leaves that second spot to most likely Jason Avant or Albert Wilson.

Greene has the ability to compete for that second wide receiver spot and could be just the weapon Alex Smith needs in 2015. Greene had some notable quarterbacks throwing to him during his days at Florida State including EJ Manuel and Heisman Trophy winner and likely first overall pick in this year’s draft, Jameis Winston.

"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 of NFL.com"

I like the idea of the Kansas City Chiefs grabbing Rashad Greene in round two because this a deep wide receiver class. The Chiefs can grab a more important need in the first round (maybe a corner, safety, or even a center, as Todd McShay predicted) and then focus on getting a solid receiver in the second round. Greene should still be on the board by the time the Chiefs’ second round pick rolls around, and if so, he very well could be on his way to Kansas City.
