Green has below-average athletic ability, play speed and play strength. He's a solid run-blocker in A&M's multiple-blocking scheme who primarily excels creating movement on double-teams, down blocks and kick-outs.

He is functional in pass protection with the slide to his side or chip help, but he struggles to get to his spot when isolated and is often late with his hands, creating easy wins for good or better pass-rushers. Green can serve as competition for a roster spot in camp but will be a liability in the drop-back passing game if he stays at tackle, making it difficult to see him as anything more than a depth piece.

GRADE: 5.9/10 (UDFA - Priority)

OVERALL RANK: 285/300

POSITION RANK: IOL31

PRO COMPARISON: John Wetzel
