Scouting Report
Green exhibited his versatility during an outstanding 2010 season, only his second in college. He ran for 1,199 yards with 18 touchdowns and an 8.2-yard per-carry average, while catching 27 passes for 363 yards for Hawaii. At the very least, that part of his game should create interest among NFL teams. Green, who had 11 receptions for 98 yards in 2009, is polished and experienced in the passing game, as he has excellent hands and knows how to get open. He is smooth making the catch and turning upfield, is a strong route runner and understands when to come back to the quarterback. While talent evaluators may not view him as a future every-down player, Green runs hard and fights for yards after contact. He possesses quick feet for a big back and can elude tacklers with some shiftiness, but runs too high and can be cut down easily as a result. He has good burst to the hole, though he doesn't have top-end speed in the open field. His biggest problem may be ball security, as he carries it away from his body and often has trouble transferring it between arms. He fumbled twice during the East-West Shrine game, setting up a 16-yard touchdown for the East by coughing it up on the first play of the game. He still led the West with eight carries, running for 18 yards, and caught two passes for 13 yards. How to protect the ball better is something that can be taught and Green may need some intensive coaching to fix the problem if he wants to become a feature back in the NFL. He's likely to be a value pick in the later rounds.
