Jonte Green
Round 6, Pick 196
Position: CB
Class:  Sr
HT: 5'10"
WT: 174 lbs.
40 Time: 4.45
Conference: WAC
Biography: Three-year starter awarded all-conference as a senior with totals of 64 tackles/1 interceptions/14 pass breakups. Junior numbers included 74 tackles and eight passes broken up.

Positives: Athletic cornerback who's displayed a variety of skill in his game. Plays with an aggressive nature, works hard to defend the run and makes a lot of tackles up the field. Keeps the action in front of him, gets a nice jump on the throw and displays a good move to the pass. Can burst to the ball out of his plant and works to make plays. Solid return specialist who sets up blocks, finds the running lanes and quickly gets through them.

Negatives: Does not consistently play to his 40 time or show a burst. Loses opponents, blows assignments and does a lot of trailing down the field. Struggles staying with receivers out of breaks.

Analysis: Green is a size/speed prospect who flashed ability the past three years yet has shown little consistency in his ball skills. Best in zone coverage, he's a prospect who must earn his wage on special teams.

Projection: FA
