TE Ladarius Green, Louisiana-Lafayette

Chargers, 4th round. La.-Lafayette: Often split out wide. H-back size with Jared Cook-like build. Very good hand size. Long wingspan. Buccaneers, Saints, Falcons and Jaguars have shown interest.

Positives: Above-average vertical leap. Good hands and concentration in traffic and can extend. Good straight-line speed.

Negatives: Suspect run blocking ability — lacks effort. Doesn’t look very agile. Long strider who has trouble changing direction or running crisp routes. Below-average upper-body strength.

Projection: Will only ever be an H-back, not an inline TE. Will probably be on the bench and special teams in 2012, with Gates and Rosario ahead of him, but I envision a Jared Cook-like career with a long developmental period. Don’t draft him, but watch him for early signs of being used.
