31 games - 35 receptions, 363 yards over 3 seasons. Pretty good?

Actually 52 receptions, 670 yards, and four touchdowns in 46 games in his career (at U.V.A and Southern). Not bad for a wide receiver that was the fourth wide out on his team.

Also, I don't know why you are bringing up college stats now, we are in to training camp in the NFL. If you have been to camp, you would have heard/seen that Jared Green is killing it day in and day out.

His stats in college, have nothing to do with how well he could/can be.

So, you believe college success doesn't correlate to NFL ability?

Name another 4th wideout on a below average team that has made a 53 man roster. Continuously posting how great he has looked against camp fodder is just as ridiculous as claiming Armanti is a camp riser, even though he has nearly as many receptions in 8 preseason games against NFL competition than Green had in the mighty SWAC during his senior season.

BTW, that is a "pretty good" season, not a "pretty good" career.

You mentioned one, Armanti Edwards hadn't even played wide receiver before he reached the NFL.

Also don't put words in my mouth. College success does/can correlate to NFL success, but it's definitely not the end all be all. Green could have reasons unbeknownst to us on why he didn't see the field much. A few of these reasons could have resulted in him transferring.

Also Green has the NFL in his blood his father the great Darrell Green has kept him around NFL facilities for years, if anyone knows what it takes to make it in the NFL coming out of college, it's Jared.

Jared has shown a strong work ethic and his playing very well against the competition that is in front of him.

He may not make the roster, but I guarantee you that he will be a part of this team via the practice squad come week one.

Sounds like Rivera wants CJ to step up to another level.

At this point in the preseason I see some of the risers as Murphy, Barnidge, Keiser, Alexander, Tolbert, Norman, Phillips

Falling Hogan, Hardy, Norwood, all safeties

The safeties haven't been that bad...no big glaring mistakes which is good...nakamura looks like a solid tackler

Well, they really weren't tested much on Sat.

Wish we played a better O than the Jets this week.
