    Strong Points: Better-than-adequate size for an EDGE with excellent athletic ability. Some experience playing both on his feet and down. Good snap reaction and shows a burst off blocks to close on the QB. Has some experience dropping into coverage.

    Weak Points: Weight-room strength (24 reps) but it doesn't carry over to the playing field. Tendency to play tall vs. the run, where he struggles because he doesn't show top strength at the point and can be slow to shed. Not quick to read and react and can get fooled by misdirection.

    The Way We See It: Green played more as a linebacker in 2017 and looked like a good prospect. In 2018, when he played down more often he didn't play as well. Reads and reacts better when on his feet. Adequate size and weight-room strength but plays small and can be slow off of blocks, especially in the run game. Flashes as a pass rusher because of his speed and length. Flashed quick hands. Has to win with his initial quickness to make his presence felt. His speed and athletic traits will get him drafted, but he looks to be more like a practice squad player at this time. Just too raw. Has to learn to play with the strength he has and use his speed to his advantage. If he can show he can be a force on special teams, he may be able to roster as a rookie.
