Anybody know anything about the TE from USC that's getting a tryout? Name is Kevin Greene, so it kinda stuck out and I looked him up. Apparently he ran a 4.4 flat at his pro day and is 6'3'' 250. Looks like he's played both sides of the ball.
Greene is a local kid. From the bay area and went to Sacred Heart. Was recruited by Pete Carroll as a OLB/DL but never really panned out. Was mostly a reserve and special teams player. Great athlete and good size though and a smart kid too. He made the switch to TE his last year and was still playing OLB/DL. He tried out with the Raiders as well. Now he's at camp with us for a tryout.
My roommate is a private tutor and also tutors at Sacred Heart, so he knows him personally and was actually his tutor before he went to USC. I've followed his career a bit because of the personal connection. If he makes in the NFL, it won't be as a OLB/DL only but he's just the type of guy that if the 49ers like. Has versatility and can play special teams. I'll be rooting for him to grab that 90th spot after the recent cut of Marquardt. I think he can be a PS player.
