Overview

A former defensive tackle, Green started the last two seasons at left guard for the Tigers and is viewed as an ascending player by NFL scouts, if one relatively unknown outside of the SEC. He remains a bit of a work in progress in terms of technique and upper-body strength, but for zone-blocking teams looking for an athletic developmental prospect, Green could prove one of the more intriguing guards of the 2009 draft. Had an arm span of 33 3/4 inches and a hand span of 10 1/4 inches at the combine.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Good quickness off the snap. ... Wide set and has good lateral agility and balance to compete with athletic defensive tackles in pass protection. ... Quick first step to pop the defensive tackle and release to the second level for combo blocks and on pulling plays. ... Good vision to locate the secondary block and is athletic enough to hit the moving target. Negatives: Raw. ... Was getting by on his athleticism at the college level. ... Marginal upper-body strength and hand placement. ... Struggles to sustain blocks. ... A bit high in pass protection and can be bull-rushed into the pocket.
