Pick Analysis: Green was one of the top all-purpose performers in the Sun Belt Conference the past four years, earning first-team all-conference nods as a receiver and all-purpose player in 2017 and 2018. A finalist for the 2018 Paul Hornung Award as the nation's best all-purpose threat, Green led the Red Hawks in receiving (50-855-17.1, eight TDs) and contributed as a rusher (20-193-9.7, one TD) and returner (19-385-20.3 kickoffs, 5-85-17.0, one TD punt). Green was an offensive weapon (team-high 54-812-15.0, five TDs receiving; 14-185-12.5 rushing) and special teams demon, tying for the FBS lead with four kickoffs for touchdowns (27-876-32.3 total, 13-101-7.8 on punt returns). He led his team in receiving in 2016 (36-344-9.6, four TDs) as a part-time starter, as well as in his all-purpose ways (14-123-8.5 rushing; 14-298-21.3 kickoff returns; 10-94-9.4 punt returns). Even as a redshirt freshman, he managed to garner honorable mention all-conference honors as the ULM's top pass-catcher (63-698-11.1, seven TDs) while returning some kickoffs (10-202-20.2).
