Dynasty Player to Watch: Chargers Tight End Ladarius Green

Ladarius Green was a fourth round pick for the Chargers in the 2012 draft and he has a total of 4 career receptions. Before you hit back on your web browser, I should tell you that Green scores higher on my tight end model than most starting tight ends in the league.  A model that includes just two variables, 40 time and receiving yards, does a decent job of projecting tight ends although it is by no means all-encompassing.  Ladarius Green caught 67 yards per game receiving in his senior season at Lousiana Lafayette and he ran a 4.45 at the Combine.  Those are both very good for a tight end, so let’s just call him a high ceiling dude.

The interesting thing is that while Green is light for a tight end at just around 240 pounds, he isn’t short like Chris Gragg is for a tight end.  Green is almost 6’6”.  That might make Gragg comparatively thicker, but I would think there’s also potential that Green could add weight to his huge frame.  I like to see a 6-6 TE that runs 4.45, but I would rather see a heavier tight end as he could add weight and even if it made him slower, he could still be very fast for a TE.

The playing time picture for Green also isn’t as convoluted as you would think (given that he was 4th among TEs in receptions for the Chargers last year).  The Chargers have released Randy McMichael and Antonio Gates is turning 87 this year I think.  Maybe Gates is turning 78, I’m not 100% sure about that but he’s old in any case.  The only other tight end that Green has to contend with is Dante Rosario.  Dante Rosario!

Ladarius Green is exactly the kind of player that I think NFL teams should be incorporating into their offenses as he is the kind of big/fast player typically associated with scoring touchdowns.  Will Green get his chance any time soon?  Who knows.  But he’s a player to keep on your radar in dynasty formats.
