Featured Prospects

Selected by: Green Bay Packers
Round: 3
Pick (Overall): 32 (96)

Pick Analysis: The Packers finally address their running back needs with the selection of Green. He is a punishing inside runner with the strength and power to grind out tough yards between the tackles. Throw in the fact that he is a terrific pass catcher, and it's easy to forecast a big role for Green in the Packers' offense next season.

Overview

Green does not project to be an every-down back at the next level, but he is a weapon in the passing game and could contribute on third down. He has prototypical size, but he runs a bit upright and will not consistently break tackles in the NFL. He also has a case of fumble-itis. He excels in the passing game, as he shows the ability to consistently get open, catches the ball away from his body and turns upfield without any wasted motion. Green will likely be a late round pick due to his ability as a receiver.


Strengths

Green is a big back with quick feet. Finds running lanes quickly and shows good explosion through the hole. Possesses a bit of a wiggle to make defenders miss in the open field. Shows great instincts as a receiver, runs precise routes and has terrific hands. Fights to the whistle and finishes runs.

Weaknesses

Lacks the top end speed to break the long one. Runs too high and gets tackled too easily at times. Will not be able to push the pile in short yardage situations at the next level. Does not keep the ball high and tight and fumbles far too frequently. Struggles to block linebackers in pass protection.

Grade

5.0
