2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Greg Little, WR, North Carolina

Greg Little spent his first two seasons at North Carolina as a running back. However, prior to the 2009 campaign, Little was moved to wide receiver. He did quite well and led the Tar Heels with 62 receptions for 724 yards and five touchdowns. On a team that was not very efficient passing the ball, those were some pretty impressive numbers. Little even did some running again and carried the ball 29 times for 166 yards and a score.

Little showed potential, but he was obviously not a polished wide receiver. Thus, how he performed during his senior campaign was going to go a long way regarding his draft status. Unfortunately for Little and his draft status, he was suspended for the 2010 campaign amid an investigation by the NCAA into whether players received benefits from agents.

Little will have a lot to prove at the combine both on and off the field. The recent success of receivers out of UNC in the NFL had Little poised to be a first or second round selection assuming he could polish his skills during his senior season, but without a senior season his stock will likely fall to at least the middle rounds…if he is lucky.

2/8 Update: Little still has a lot to prove. His draft stock could be one of the most volatile in this class. His lack of experience is a big negative, but he is a talented player who could be a superb receiver at the next level. Scouts will have to try and figure it all out during North Carolina's Pro Day and at the NFL Combine. The difference could be between a second round and a sixth round selection.
