What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about GREG LITTLE: North Carolina, 6024 231 4.51. Three-year
starter. Did not play in 2010 due to a ruling by the NCAA on accepting extra
benefits. Talented and athletic as any wide receiver in the 2011 draft. The
sticky wicket in Little’s production lies in the quarterback position where TJ
Yates threw more interceptions than touchdown passes and consistently missed
open receivers in 2009. The upside for the big receiver was that almost every
catch he made was spectacular and magical. Has started at both running back and
wide receiver during his career. Does it all – blocks, catches, and runs strong
after catch. Slashes through arm tackles and finishes the play. Goes up after
the ball at the high point with his strong hands and positions his body between
the ball and defender. An impact player with long arms and big hands. Possesses
natural ball skills. Plucks the ball away from his body. Has the foot quickness
to beat press coverage. Can avoid and shows a burst to get upfield and separate.
Big and strong enough for inside breaking routes. Good hip flexibility and knee
bend. Adjusts to the flight of the ball and competes to catch it. Produced
against good competition. Caught 62 passes for 724 yards and had 5 TDs in 2009.
Averaged 5.7 ypc as a running back. Benched 27 reps at Combine. OSR:6/43.
Second/third round. (A-33 1/4, H-9 1/8, VJ-40.5, SS-4.21).
