However, lacks much wiggle or lateral shiftiness to his game when asked to make defenders miss or be sudden at the line. More of a weaver who is real sharp or sudden and has a tendency to gear down when trying to make a cut at full speed. But he does possess decent footwork for a big man when asked to pick his way in tighter areas. Does a nice job maintaining balance, keeping his pad level down and can step through a defender or break and arm tackle at the line.
Isn't a real seasoned pass catcher, but does showcases the ability to block in the pass game. Is patient, does a nice job keeping his head on a swivel and identifying his target quickly. Looks natural sliding his feet, sitting into his stance and initially taking on his man. But isn't real heavy handed, struggles to stay engaged on the block though the play.
Impression: Possesses good size, runs hard and likes to finish through contact. However, lacks a second gear, isn't real shifty and is just limited in what he can give an NFL team."
This is not to say that he doesn't have a place on an NFL roster. After all, how many NFL teams use a true every-down back?
Green's size and straight-ahead running style could make him a nice short-yardage or even fullback option, and his natural pass-catching ability provides the versatility that teams seemingly can't get enough of in today's pass-heavy NFL. Teams looking to add a running back should give Green strong consideration between rounds four and six.
Positives: Big, tough, physical cut-and-go back with a knack for lowering his shoulder and creating contact. Decisive, hard runner who knows where he's going as soon as he gets the ball. Reaches top speed quickly with a quick first step and strong initial burst toward the hole. Keeps his weight forward and feet churning, rarely falling back or losing yardage. Quick feet for a back of his size. Willingly engages defenders along the sideline to earn the extra yard rather than stepping out of bounds. Soft, reliable hands as a pass-catcher. Displays good balance and body control, extending his arms to catch balls thrown outside of his upper torso. Nice concentration to secure passes in the flat before looking upfield. Isn't afraid to take on defensive linemen in pass protection and maintains route accuracy through contact from linebackers when running routes in the flat.
Negatives: One-dimensional, straight-ahead runner who lacks vision and recognition to cutback and extend runs. Too willing to initiate contact in one-on-one situations, often lowering his shoulder when he has the space to elude tackler laterally. Leans too far forward at times and will lower his head prematurely, rendering him off balance. Short, quick steps and low knees leave him vulnerable to arm tackles below the waist, and easier to bring down than his size would indicate he should be. A one-speed back, lacking a top gear to pull away from second-level defenders. Lacks patience to allow holes to develop, often outrunning his blockers."
Positive: Productive ball carrier with solid size/speed numbers. Displays good vision, quickly finds running lanes, and immediately gets through them. Relatively quick footed, eludes defenders or avoids piles. Patient, waits for blocks to develop, and will choose his spots on the inside. Solid receiver out of the backfield.
Negative: Not a physical runner and tends to finish plays out of bounds. Does not display much strength carrying the ball. Must pick up the blocking intensity.
Analysis: Green is a physically gifted ball carrier with the athletic skills and running abilities to make it at the next level. He offers potential as a second back in the NFL if he rounds out his game and carries theball with more physicality."
Weaknesses: Size a tad under the typical NFL RB. Does not possess elite break-away speed. Fumble on first play of Shrine Game was not helpful.
Projection: 7th round."
