I bet they'd run to the podium to draft him.
That's what I say as well. Some people didn't like my choice of him at #56 in the mock that I did (the knock on him being that he's too slow) ... but from everything I can get my hands on ... and everything I've learned about him ... I've come to the conclusion that Khaseem Greene just makes plays. He hits like a truck and has fantastic instincts from what I can see. I have to totally agree with your assessment English.

Absolutely. If Lofa Tatupu didn't teach Seahawk fans that lesson ... I don't know what it's going to take. Khaseem Greene appears to have that same kind of ability to READANDREACT that Tatupu had. He has a real nose for the football, is a very sure tackler, hits with authority, and just flat out makes things happen. He's also one heck of a leader, an amazingly hard worker, and is all about team. Personally, I'd take THATkind of player every day of the week over one who has a .2 second superior 40 time and who may need a bit more polish. That's just me though.
