4) Rashad Greene, wide receiver, Jacksonville Jaguars
Another rookie to step up for the Jacksonville Jaguars, wide receiver Rashad Greene really put in a strong effort in Week 1.
While seven receptions for 28 yards isn’t going to leap off the page and make anybody fall in love with him, Greene’s effort was far and away better than that of starters Allen Robinson or Allen Hurns. While the other two were plagued with drops, fumbles, or pretty much anything nasty a wide receiver can be plagued with, Greene seemed to step up.
His seven catches came on 13 targets (one drop) but what he showed is potential.
I liked what I saw out of Greene. I think he is developing a strong rapport with quarterback Blake Bortles and I think he can be a real up and comer for the team. Hopefully he continues to get opportunities and hopefully he can find a way to turn them into more than 28 yards going forward.
