Green was a 3-star recruit coming out of Peoria High School in Peoria, Illinois. He had many offers from bigger programs like Iowa and Minnesota, but opted to stay close to home. He started all three years and only gave up four sacks.
Green is a big man measuring at 6’4″ and 315 pounds. He is a little top heavy and could stand to strengthen/add size to his lower body.
Green is a people mover. I’ve seen a few times where he takes linebackers completely out of the frame. The scary thing is that he still hasn’t harnessed his full explosive ability.
Green often struggles getting to the next level. He misses blocks in space simply because he can’t react as quick as he needs to. Slightly below average length, could struggle with longer armed pass rushers.
Run Blocking: 4
Arguably the best part of his game. He is a nasty finisher who just moves people out of the way. As I stated earlier, he can struggle in space, but he’s undefeated in short yardage situations.
Pass Blocking: 3
Nothing here to really ride home about. He’s by no means a bad pass blocker, although he does struggle with low hand placement. Just nothing special.
The biggest area Green will have to improve on at the next level is his overall technique. His hand placement is sometimes downright sloppy, and the same goes for his footwork.
Green moved inside and played center for the majority of the 2020 season, and played great. He just doesn’t have the length or athleticism to ever play tackle at the next level.
Green has no injury history and played in every game during his three year career at Illinois.
Green is an explosive, physical player at the point of attack. His motor never cools off and he will open up a hole when you need him to.
Green is an average athlete with less than ideal length. His technique, specifically his hand placement, will need a lot of work.
Green has all the tools to start at the next level. You can’t coach explosiveness and physicality, two traits he has and excels at. Ultimately, his ability to polish his footwork and hand placement will determine if he’s a starter or a backup at the next level.
