Green gets in the backfield. A lot. As you can see by his junior highlights above he seems to have a a good understanding of leverage which doesn’t come easy to some defensive linemen. While ‘only’ 6’1″ 245 lbs, he displays excellent technique by not only keeping his center of gravity low but also making sure his shoulders are parallel to the ground. This allows him to drive with his legs and plow offensive linemen backwards. Green seems to use his hands to shed blocks well which is, again, a testament to his understanding of the position. Oh and the big lineman seems to mighty quick, too. He makes the most of his time in the backfield by chopping down ball carriers before they get to the line of scrimmage. He really is a joy to watch on film.
Definite redshirt. Green projects to an interior lineman at Cincinnati and will need time to bulk up. What’s encouraging is that he seems to have the mental aspects of the game down pat and there’s no question in my mind that Dave Lawson will add on valuable muscle. My only concern is his frame but if he can follow the path that Jordan Stepp did at Cincinnati, Green will be just fine. Stepp like Green is short but powerful and has made the most of his 6’0″ frame standing at almost 290 lbs now.
