Marcus Greer is a prospect to get excited about when you look at what he’s done over the past year.
Projected on the offensive side of the ball as a guard or center, Greer brings a defensive lineman mentality to his game.
Greer uses his athleticism to separate himself from others in the trenches. With quick feet, Greer does a great job of going lateral with fluid movement. This skill set allows Greer to block in space and gain position on defenders. Quick feet allow Greer to be ready to flip his hips and shoulders to be in position to make a block on pull plays.
While some look for brute strength, we look for explosive movement at the position and Greer bring solid leg drive, solid and strong punch, and the ability to anchor. At times, Greer does tend to get high, however, we see that from almost every offensive lineman at the high school level.
A high-level student off the field, Greer shows the mental makeup and football IQ we love from offensive linemen that might not have the eyeball test size. As we stated already, Greer plays aggressive and we love that about him. He’s an old fashion ass-kicker in the trenches and the type of player you want on your team.
Pros: Physicality, Natural Bender, Quick Feet, Nasty
Cons: Would like to see weight in 290 range, fine tune technique
