2015 NFL Draft: Chaz Green works out for Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are apparently also scouting non-quarterbacks. I know, I know, shocking. Still, it's happening. According to Tony Pauline, one of the players they've scheduled a private workout with is Florida's Chaz Green.

Green's a 6'5", 313 lbs. lineman out of the University of Florida who's versatile, but not outstanding. He's a talented athlete with quick feet, but can lose the edge on pass rushers and doesn't play with a ton of strength, either in the running game or against power rushers. He'll have to improve quite a bit if he wants to be a starter in the NFL, but he certainly has the talent to turn into one with some good coaching. Writing for NFL.com, Lance Zierlein called him a "heady player with positional versatility," but someone who "must improve his strength and ability in pass protection if he wants to be anything more than a backup."

The Bucs are in desperate need for linemen, so a mid-roud pick on Green wouldn't be out of the ordinary.
