A.J. Green, CB, Oklahoma State

Draft Profile:

"AJ displays sufficient reactive athleticism for the position. His tackling efficiency has been better on the perimeter than it has been against the run. In the passing game, while playing press-man, he easily opens his hips and runs upfield with nine routes on outside releases. In off man, his technique is sufficient. He demonstrates an ideal length for the position and good foot quickness. He has a good transition at the top of the route and demonstrates good ball skills when the ball is in the air. This is an outside corner whose skill also projects well as a vice/gunner on special teams."

Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn loves big athletic corners and that is exactly what Green is. He almost 6-foot-2 and 200 pounds. The biggest knock on Green is he can be a touch too grabby during routes, though most corners get away with that in the NFL.

In addition to adding depth in the secondary, the Falcons will need to secure some special team players and Green will be a great gunner. His size and strength will help him in matchups with players from around the NFC South like Mike Evans or slant specialist Michael Thomas.
