5. Khaseem Greene, WLB, Rutgers

Khaseem is a Safety converted to a tackling machine linebacker. Many scouts and draft experts would say this would be a reach at 21 but in my opinion, he is a solid first round pick. I do not expect him to get past the 49ers, patriots or Ravens, so I would not be upset, by no means if we snatch him up in the first. Green like I said earlier was a safety then converted to weakside linebacker. He was named 2012 co- defensive player of the year and finished the year with a 136 tackles, 12 which were for losses and 6 sacks. Greene is a prototypical 4-3 linebacker and would fit perfectly in cincy’s scheme which is in need of a solid weakside linebacker so they can move Vontaze Burfict to his natural position at MLB. And move Rey to the bench where he is most helpful.
