Top 100 Prospects – TE Ladarius Green

For many of the players entering pro football through the NFL Draft, success on the college level was an everyday thing over four or five years on campus. Schools like Penn State, Georgia, Florida, Louisana State, Oklahoma, Southern Cal, Oregon – every season brings more victories than defeats and seasons end with bowl games.
