Broncos scout Cornell Green has been named the AFC Scout of the Year by the Fritz Pollard Alliance.
Green, who has been evaluating players for the last 32 years, is in his 25th season with the Broncos. He will be honored alongside Falcons scout Bob Harrison, the NFC Scout of the Year, at an awards reception Friday in Indianapolis.
"Cornell is a vital part of our scouting department, and I'm thrilled that the Fritz Pollard Alliance is honoring him with this prestigious award," Broncos GM Brian Xanders said. "He is a winner who brings vast experience and wisdom to our scouting process."
Green played for the Cowboys for 13 seasons from 1962-74 and recorded a 145-game consecutive starts streak. The defensive back was named the 10th-best undrafted player of all-time by NFL.com.
