Florida State's leader in receptions for three years running now, Greene earned All-ACC honors in 2013 with 76 receptions (second most in a season in school history) for 1,128 yards and nine TDs. His 22 career touchdown receptions make him the active leader in the ACC, and his 171 career receptions are the fourth highest in school history. And some think he's only scratched the surface.
Another year with Jameis Winston at QB could lead to even better chemistry than we saw last year between these two and should make for quite a showcase for NFL scouts leading up to draft, where Greene could find himself in first-day conversation.
At only 178 pounds, there are merited concerns about Greene's durability at the next level, but he's fast, extremely quick, fluid in and out of cuts and can make big plays with the ball in his hands, prompting some to mention DeSean Jackson as an NFL comparison. Though explosive and possessing a knack for getting open, Greene relies too heavily on his chest and body to catch the football and has dropped a few easy ones as a result.

11/11/14 - Jameis Winston overcame some more first-half mistakes to lead second-ranked Florida State to another comeback victory.

Winston and the offense started slowly for the third consecutive game and two first-quarter interceptions allowed the Cavaliers to take a 13-7 lead.
