College Statistics


Player Overview

Greg Little finished his collegiate career at Ole Miss with SEC All-Freshman First Team (2016), All-SEC Second Team (2017), 2018 Preseason All-America First Team, All-SEC First Team (2018), and All-America Second Team (2018) honors. He has had a decorative career at Ole Miss University that has propelled him to become one of the better offensive tackle prospects coming into the draft this year.


  • He has pedigree, familiar with level of competition and intensity at pro-level due to bloodlines. Father was a former player with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
  • Athletic big, frame does not limit him when he moves.
  • Has the quickness to handle speed-rushers on the edge.
  • Great Length that helps with typically being the person to initiate the contact.


  • Not the most effective run blocker - Must develop frame, strength, and technique in run game.
  • Has to develop patience and control when beat to recover effectively. Balance becomes an issue in this regard.
  • Does not seem to have the overall motor that is desired in an offensive lineman.

Let’s see his work (#74 OT):

How He Would Fit On The Redskins

For Little, a developmental role as a Redskin’ would be significant for him. Washington is in solid standing currently at the tackle position; however, the Redskins has two starters in Trent Williams and Morgan Moses who has proven to deal with significant injuries throughout the season, and there is no reliable backup or younger player, in general, being invested into for the eventual take over of either tackle position. Due to his athletic build for the position, Little is capable of playing in any scheme in the league, so that is a non-issue here in Washington. If the Redskins were to look for a player to the caliber of Greg Little in the third-round, or him if he slips past his projection, he can be a useful option. The only question would be at that point is, did the Redskins waste the pick by selecting a project (based on the Redskins standing at the offensive tackle position)?
