Can anyone cover Cincinnati Bengals youngster A.J. Green? Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh isn't sure, already ranking Green as perhaps the league's premier wide receiver, according to NFL.com.
That's strange timing for those kind of comments, considering Harbaugh's team get the first chance to try and stop the explosive 2011 rookie sensation. The Ravens handled Green well in the final game of last season, but his knack for the big play means he can change a game at any time.
Being able to match up with a corner as athletic as Lardarius Webb, certainly helps the Ravens chances. He can run with any receiver and possesses good natural agility and change-of-direction skills.
Shadowing Green is Webb's best bet, as he is sure to lose a physical, press battle against the 6'4", 207-pounder. Of course it won't hurt Webb's chances of corralling Green to have safety Ed Reed lurking around the deep zones.
Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton looks Green's way a lot, so the Ravens would be wise to bracket him as often as they can.
