Ourlads' Analysis:

2012 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about LADARIUS GREEN: Louisiana-Lafayette, 6056 238 4.47. Three-year starter. Is a good athlete who is a raw route runner. He is built like a thicker slot type receiver. Needs more strength as a blocker. Needs pattern development. Struggles to separate from linebackers in man to man despite level of competition and his athletic ability. Runs several crossing patterns where at times he doesn’t get his head around quickly to see the ball. Doesn’t make sharp cuts and rounds off routes. He tries to rely on his speed. Flashes at times when he lines up in the slot and runs a skinny post. He needs to refine his faking ability. Has big strong hands to take the ball away from a defensive back. Lacks the upper and lower body base, balance, and willingness to be an inline blocker. A finesse waist bender type blocker. Will break down on linebackers and screen block them initially but doesn’t finish. Grades out as a solid backup developmental tight end and ‘upgrades’ a stop gap backup. He has ascending skills and production. Has a chance to contribute on Sundays based on measurables, but he needs pro physical and skill development. 2011 stats: 51-606 yds, 11.9 ypr, 8 TDs. OSR:4/12. Fourth/ fifth round. (A-34 1/2, H-10 1/8, BP-16, VJ-34 1/2).
