Scouting Report: Strengths
- Green has good size and is a fluid mover, capable of mirroring quickness underneath
- Transitions well from coverage to close on the ball. Strong hands, quick reactions for the interceptions.
- Has the quick, agile feet and fluid hips to mirror quickness and change direction underneath. But he’s at his best facing the action.
- Flashes intimidating attitude and will crush tiptoeing receivers across the middle.
- While built more like a cornerback than a safety, Green has the vision, range, hitting ability, and ball skills teams want at free safety in the pass-heavy NFL.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Isn’t great in route recognition when he’s facing the action, is hesitant and susceptible to double moves, and too often gets unnecessarily handsy when playing trail position
- Has very inconsistent tackling technique and too often just throws himself at the lower body of the ballcarrier instead of wrapping up.
- Inconsistent getting off of blocks. Can be a step slow to react when a quarterback comes back to his side of the field late in progression.
- Not an explosive player and needs to show better bend and flexibility in his drops - plays too high.
