Hat tip to KMarch, who pointed out that the Falcons will be holding a private workout with Louisiana-Lafayette tight end Ladarius Green. The Browns and Buccaneers are also in.

Green is one of those raw, toolsy prospects that could go either way. He has the size (6'6"), physicality and hands to be a terrific receiving tight end and could even play wide receiver with his excellent straight line speed. What he doesn't do exceptionally well is block and run routes, both things that would probably preclude him from having a huge role with the team in 2012.

If all went exceptionally well, he would be a useful role player in year one and a quality starter from 2013 on. If all doesn't go well, he could struggle to crack the lineup in 2013 and beyond while he develops to the demands of the NFL game, and maybe never make it at all. I tend to think his talent speaks for itself, but you just never know.

Of course, the Falcons do have Tony Gonzalez in front of him for this season. That's not a small consideration.

So where could Green be had? He's widely projected to go between the second and third rounds, and would be nice value in the third if the Falcons could nab him there. I tend to think that the team will try to address its pass rushing concerns or offensive line in the second round, but I've been wrong about a great many things.

What do you think of Green?
