Green has fallen out of the first round in most of the mocks and live drafts I’m seeing. His “down year” has scared off perspective drafters and opened the door for you to get an excellent value in the late second and possibly first couple picks of the third round. The fifth year wide out lead the league in YPRR (yards per route run) last year and finished the year with his fourth straight 1000 yard season, despite not catching a pass in six games. Green will once again be the clear focal point of the Bengals offense with a projected 14oo yards and 9 TD’s, his biggest risk is staying healthy.
Highest recommended draft position: first round pick 9
