Greg Little Scouting Report

WR Greg Little, University of North Carolina, 6'3" 220 lbs. 

Size/Ball Skills - 10 - Little possesses a well strapped together 6'3 220 frame, has long arms, and naturally plucks the ball out of the air. Brings ball in tight immediately after the catch; strong hands that really snatch the ball. 

Speed/Quickness - 9 - Has good speed to stretch the field vertically, understands how to just get open. Really quick in space and is an excellent open field runner. This has a lot to do with his background as a player. To read more about Greg Little's versatility, check out my Sleeper Special Edition.

Production - 7 - With only one full season at wide receiver, Little is somewhat a raw talent. With that being said, his production in his first season at WR in 2009 was solid (62 receptions ranking 4th all-time in UNC history, 890 all purpose yards, and 6 total touchdowns). Production is more of quality than quantity for Greg Little.

Route Running - 8 - Not very sharp in and out of his cuts, Little makes his money in the quick hitting, timing routes. Very efficient on drags and crossing patterns, Greg Little needs the ball in space where he can be most effective. Shows his great ball skills when asked to run deeper post and corner routes; Little can run the entire route tree. Bodies up his man more often than he separates, Little understands how to utilize his frame well.

Best Fit: Little would fit in with a unique offensive scheme that needs a playmaker at the wideout position. He will need more refinement in his route running ability, and Little needs a veteran presence around him to teach him the position. Best fit would be with the Baltimore Ravens, who are in desperate need for more talent at wide receiver.

X-Factor: How will teams view Greg Little, who was declared ineligible for the 2010-2011 college football season? In such a deep wide receiving draft class, will Little get lost in the mix? Greg Little's upside and current draft stock combine for one of the best bargains of the 2011 draft.

Where he will be picked: Day 2: Rounds 2 thru 3

Where he should be picked: Mid 2nd Round
