Cowboys’ Potential Pick: Khaseem Greene, LB, Rutgers

My latest scouting report is on Rutgers linebacker Khaseem Greene.

At 6-1, 241 pounds, Greene is an undersized linebacker. At his height and with sub-33 inch arms, Greene struggles getting off of blocks. Once engaged, he’s usually rendered ineffective. Greene makes his impact in pursuit, flying down the line to tackle ball-carriers in the backfield. He’s not an extremely explosive athlete—he ran just a 4.71 and posted a 30-inch vertical at the Combine—but he plays instinctually. His bread-and-butter is making plays in space as opposed to taking on blocks.

As a former safety, Greene is a fluid athlete. He plays linebacker as if he’s in the defensive backfield. Again, he doesn’t possess outstanding speed, but Greene makes up for it by rarely taking any false steps. He finds himself in the right place at the right time. Greene is also a reliable tackler in the open-field. He seems to have a knack for creating turnovers; he intercepted six passes and forced an incredible 12 fumbles during his time at Rutgers.
