Projection: Starting RT in heavier Man/Gap scheme, could play inside in a pinch but is better suited outside where he can take advantage of his footwork. Draft Projection: Mid-to-late Round 1 – Ryan Wilson, CBS Sports

Ravens Fit: Green will be a tough eval for the Ravens, as his run-blocking is a great fit for their heavier gap scheme and his power at the point of attack as well as his toughness and competitiveness will be attractive. His versatility, more than anything, will have the Ravens intrigued. given that he always put the team first, moving all over the Aggies OL, often times in the middle of games. But his pass protection is enigmatic. He may not have the anchor or play strength to face down bigger interior DL at the next level while there are still technique issues when he plays outside, particularly with his inside hand, that need to be ironed out if he is to play RT in the NFL. I’d rather have Patrick Mekari there while he develops (or, as of last night, of course, Morgan Moses).

Overall Fit 4/5

Pass Protection

His pre-snap and immediate post-snap recognition can be found wanting at times. He struggles to identify where pressure is coming from and move to block the right man. This could come from A&M moving him around as much as they did, but even after a solid run of games at one spot you can see some issues in this regard. It’s always second-level pressure that he struggles with the most. He can identify stunts and games quickly and use his footwork to match looping defenders. He is an efficient mover in his kick-slide, somewhat in the Mike-Mayock-Dancing-Bear mold, he consistently wins the half-man relationship. He has some issues with his punch timing and can sometimes wait too long to get his hands on, particularly when working with independent hands.

Longer rushers can win quickly against him when he misses his mark in both timing and placement when working with an inside strike. When he does time his inside strike, he lands it in the strike zone and uses his play strength to guide the defender up the field and get him to run the hoop. When using an outside strike, or when working a two handed strike, he can struggle to locate his outside hand, this usually leads to less latch strength and therefore rushers with good hand usage can disengage. He isn’t always able to sustain and when he doesn’t sustain, he also struggles to counter and get back latched, though when his body gets out of position, he does have good recovery ability through his balance. In jump sets when he gets his hands on quickly, he can use his footwork to mirror effectively. Against bigger and longer interior defenders, he can stand up too quickly and lose his position of leverage. While he can reset his feet and anchor against edge-rushers – he’s not able to do this against interior rushers with more power and play strength.

Run Blocking

The processing issue raises itself in the run game too, particularly when pulling or getting to the second level when he can hesitate for too long on who to block in space. On Gap/Man blocks at the line of scrimmage he can be dominant. When he can take smaller drive and attack steps on Down and Drive blocks, he can really bring his play strength into play. He can snap into contact and uncoil his leverage to finish. He moves people at the point of attack, drives his feet on contact and shows a bit of nasty at times. On combination blocks, he can move too quickly to the second level when playing as the Drive man.

He displays his lateral movement, fit and finish on reach blocks well.  He’s better in short spaces than out in lots of space when he has to travel quickly in a linear fashion. His reactive athleticism and play speed on space blocks at the second level can be found wanting. He has physical toughness and mental toughness given all the position changes and consecutive starts as well as the will to compete every play.

SUMMARY
Powerful Gap blocker who can move people at the point of attack. Processing and technique issues in pass protection but efficient footwork and versatility will help him
