BIO: Two-year starter who posted 36/1/5 as a senior after 58/3/6 the prior year. Missed the .02 season after tearing his left ACL.
POSITIVES: Well-built cornerback with top size/speed numbers and playing skills. Jams opponents at the line slowing their release, displays good footwork in reverse and quickly flips his hips in transition. Explodes to the pass, has a burst of closing speed and gets vertical to make the acrobatic pass defenses or one-handed interception. Very sudden and flashes on the scene. Alert and immediately locates the pass in the air. Displays both timing and anticipation of pass defenses. Improved his skill in zone and stays with assignments.
NEGATIVES: Must improve his tackling technique and playing strength. Very soft backed off the line of scrimmage and gives up a lot of receptions in the underneath coverage. Likes trash talking.
ANALYSIS: A physically gifted prospect, Green improved his play in almost every aspect last season. Progression on the field, coupled with his measurables, could help Green move into the top 40 selections.
