Where Mock Drafts Project A.J. Green to be Selected in the NFL Draft

A.J. to the Pats?



After a strong Senior Bowl showing and a good-not-great NFL combine, A.J. Green’s NFL Draft stock appears to have settled in. Here’s a look at where major outlets currently peg the former All-Big 12 corner’s value and where he may play his NFL career.

1. CBS Sports

Projection: Round 4, pick 142 overall

Team: Washington Redskins

Probably not the best team to land on — in fact, maybe the worst team! — but Washington has a need Green could help fill. The team parted ways with veteran corner Josh Norman, who recently signed with the Bills.

2. Bleacher Report

Projection: Round 4, pick 114 overall

Team: Arizona Cardinals

From being picked on by Kyler Murray to helping him out on the opposite end of the field? I’m sure A.J. Green wouldn’t hate that. This is a team that could use a boost of depth at corner, and one that, for a rookie, would be a dream destination to learn behind Patrick Peterson.

3. Dynasty Draft Room

Projection: Round 5, pick 173 overall

Team: New England Patriots

Talk about opposite ends of the spectrum. A.J. Green going to the Redskins would be a worst-case scenario. A.J. Green to the Pats would arguably be best-case. New England had the best defense in football last season and would offer Green a chance to learn from the best lockdown corner in the NFL: Stephon Gilmore.
