  • Khaseem Greene Update Thread

    This thread will be devoted to Khaseem Greene, the player the Giants passed up in favor of the Next Jeff Rutledge.

    As a Rutgers Alumni, Chicago area resident, and fan of good defense, I'll be posting periodic updates on the promising young linebacker....

    BOURBONNAIS — Rookie linebacker Khaseem Greene has a lot to learn, but he’s learning from the best.
    Greene, a fourth-round draft pick from Rutgers, is playing on the second team at weak-side linebacker behind Lance Briggs, a seven-time Pro Bowl player. And Briggs is doing everything he can to bring the rookie along quickly.

    ‘‘He’s great,’’ Greene said. ‘‘I’m picking his brain. I’m watching him on film. I’m watching him in practice. I’m asking him a lot of questions, and he’s giving me answers.

    ‘‘He’s been a dominant player for all these years. That’s something I want to be. Having him in front of me, somebody I can go to when I have doubt or questions, it’s amazing. It’s a really good situation for me.’’

    The 6-1, 241-pound Greene, a two-time Big East defensive player of the year, is a former safety who became a playmaking strong-side linebacker at Rutgers. He can play any of the three linebacker positions.....

      Yeah, the last thing the Giants need is a fast linebacker that is smooth in coverage and creates turnovers.

        Khaseem Greene, who grew up in Elizabeth, N.J. and won Big East Defensive Player of the Year twice for Rutgers, is making an impression as a linebacker for the Chicago Bears.
        The fourth round selection (117th overall) had a solid first preseason game in a win over the Carolina Panthers in which he had four tackles. "As long as I'm out there I'm going to try to do everything within the scheme and the defense to go out there and make plays. If the opportunity presents itself like that, I'm expecting and holding myself to the standard of going and making it," he told ChicagoBears.com's Larry Mayer. He had three tackles in the Bears' 33-28 win over the Chargers last Thursday.
        The Chicago Tribune's Dan McNeil wrote a few days ago that Greene "looks worthy of a role on special teams" and that the Bears' coaching staff had similar things to what was said at Rutgers about Greene's "smarts, maturity and leadership qualities."

              Absoulutley Loved Khaseem Greene! This guy was so dynamic at Rutgers, and a huge playmaker for them. One of my fave players in last yrs draft, along with Alec Ogletree, whos wit the rams now.

              I saw someone mention Werner on here, and he was the guy i would of picked had i been GM with our first pick in draft.

              My first 4rds would of played out like this.

              1).Bjorn Werner DE Florida St.
              2).Jamar Taylor CB Boise St.
              3).Khaseem Greene LB Rutgers
              4).Marcus Lattimore RB S.Carolina(albeit, Brown and Wilson look fine, but i just loved this kids upside if he is healthy).

                Didn't find Greene impressive at all. Still don't.

                He will alwys be a backup, IMO.

                Also did not find Ogletree (can't shed at all) or Werner (not a natural pass rusher) impressive either

                  With our OL concerns right now, I can only imagine how bad of prospects we would have been had we not drafted Pugh in the 1st.

                    Khaseem Greene is getting the start in place of Lance Briggs this weekend. Given the Giants bye, I'll be closely watching the Bears game to see how my Rutgers bro handles business.

                      i was hoping he was going to be our 4th rd pick, I was shocked when we picked Nassib. As far as WLB I think we are ok with Paysinger and Jacquain. It was the middle we had the glaring hole..It looked decent with Connor, but once he got hurt you can clearly see Herzlich is not a starting caliber NFL middle linebacker. Here's what I would do moving forward..

                      1. re-sign Beason to a 2 or 3 yr deal ( if he makes it thru this season injury free)
                      2. Draft a young MLB to learn under Beason for a few years
                      3. Cutt Herz..great story but not a very good football player anymore

                        I definitely think resigning Beason needs to be a priority for Reese. Team has too many holes to create a new one by losing him to free agency next season.

                        For #2, I'd draft an OLB first....I do agree we also need an MLB of the Future, but we need an OLB of the Present.

                        As for Herzlich, yeah, agreed. Maybe keep him for specials or depth, but clearly he's not a starter.

                            He had four tackles yesterday which brings his grand total to 5.

                              I thought he played well, positionally.

                              Considering he's a rookie, playing his first game, on an injury-depleted unit, I thought he did a very good job.

                              Alot of the action went to the SAM side, so Green was on the tail end of alot of plays. But he covered his responsibilities.

                              On a hit-and-miss defense against the Green Bay Packers, Khaseem Greene was right in the middle.

                              The rookie from Rutgers made the tackles he was in position to make in his NFL debut at linebacker. Greene had four tackles — all solos — and no missed tackles to finish with a plus-0.2 rating, according to Pro Football Focus.

                              I] felt real comfortable,’’ said Greene, who was replacing injured starter Lance Briggs on the weak side. ‘‘I don’t feel there was a [particular] challenge. I was prepared. We prepared as a team. We did some extra work. A lot of things I saw on film, I saw [in the game].

                              ‘‘It was cool. I felt real good. It feels good to win. That’s really the only difference in this locker room. We got the win.’’
