4. A.J. Green, Cornerback, Oklahoma State
A.J. Green is on this list for two reasons, experience and the Browns paid big UDFA money to bring him to Cleveland. Usually, that means a team likes what you bring to the table. For Green, it is a 6-2 frame and 40 games of experience at Oklahoma State.
As stated above, Green’s size and experience are his two most significant assets. Green was very productive in his time with the Oklahoma State Cowboys with 147 total tackles, 21 passes defended, six interceptions, two forced fumbles, and an interception return for a touchdown. Green, with only a 4.69 time in the 40, will need to be very physical at the line if he is going to keep receivers in front of him.
That is unless Green is one of those rare players that plays faster than his times at the combine have shown. Green has already stated to the Cleveland media that he comes to the Browns with a “mountain on my shoulder,” so motivation should not be an issue.
While it may be hard for him to find any time in a deep cornerback group, special teams is always a way to get on a roster and fight to get to the top.
