2011 NFL Draft: A.J. Green Not Concerned About Draft Status

A.J. Green is almost certain to be drafted amongst the first five picks in the NFL Draft, but Green says that where he is drafted is of little concern to standout Georgia wide receiver

"It doesn't matter. I don't worry about any of that" 

Whoever drafts Green will be getting a supremely talented receiver. Despite missing the first four games of the 2010 season, Green still had 57 receptions for 848 yards and nine touchdowns. At this point, it isn't known if Carolina is actually considering Green with the No. 1 selection. While he would pair nicely with Panthers wide out Steve Smith, Carolina also has needs at the quarterback position and the defensive line. 

While the suspension has caused Green to be questioned by every NFL team, Green doesn't see himself as a player that has a lot of baggage surrounding him. 

"You can talk to anybody I've been around, I definitely don't have any character concerns."

The NFL Draft begins this Thursday and can be seen on ESPN.
