Draft Analysis:

Bucky Brooks' take: Green is a matchup nightmare with his combination of size, speed and athleticism. He is a sneaky vertical threat capable of developing into a role player behind Antonio Gates.

  • 6'6" Height
  • 34 1/2" Arm Length
  • 238LBS. Weight
  • 10 1/8" Hands

Overview

Green has been a late riser and could see his stock go up even more if he continues to show the type of athleticism he showed in his senior year. Although he comes from a smaller conference, Green has been a very productive pass-catching tight end and has displayed the type of athleticism that makes him a mismatch at the next level and the type of player a team could fall in love with. All things considered, he has displayed sixth-round talent up to this point and is a developmental project at the position.

Analysis

Strengths

Green is a big tight end who understands how to get open and use his frame to be a good option for the quarterback in the short passing game. He has good foot quickness, which he uses along with his frame to work against zone coverage and box out smaller defenders to secure the easy first-down catch. Green has body control that allows him to leap, torque and reach both high and low for poorly thrown balls, making him the type of red-zone option who can have his quarterback throw jump balls.

Weaknesses

Green is a raw player and likely would be a project at the position. He can struggle getting off the line of scrimmage and can give away his routes quickly when running them. He has a lot of negative aspects to his game, but the skills he lacks could be developed through coaching.
