Competitive Toughness: See Above.
Pass Sets: Green is a well proportioned offensive lineman possessing great lower-body thickness. Green keeps great body positioning by maintaining knee bend while moving, which allows him to keep a great base for power. He is always in a powerful position to strike defenders and deliver a powerful blow without overextending himself.
Anchor Ability: Green has exceptional lower-body thickness that serves as his source of power for his anchor ability. Once he gets in position, he does a great job of activating the power in his hips to stop defenders’ momentum. Once Green sits in his base, he is rarely moved backward.
Lateral Mobility: For his size, Green has surprisingly good lateral mobility. In the run game, he is able to trigger this mobility in his ability to be an effective puller on power run plays. He is also able to work to cut defenders off in a zone-blocking scheme. Green’s lateral mobility affords him the ability to make key blocks in space and makes him an effective blocker on the second level.
Power at POA: See Above.

Occasionally, Green’s hands may slip outside the interior frame of a defender, but he has the awareness to reset and replace his hands.
Football IQ: See Above.
Versatility: Any team that drafts Green is getting a player that has experience playing four different offensive line positions. Green’s body mass, strength, and athleticism allow him to play in multiple positions effectively. Green’s versatility will serve NFL teams well as they will be able to plug and play him wherever they have a need.
Pass Sets: Out of his stance, Green has a quick first step that he uses to get a jump on defenders and dictate the pass-rush sequence. He has great spatial awareness so he knows exactly how much space he has on either side of him to work his leverage against the defender. When he engages, he shoots his hands and is immediately able to get a firm grasp on defenders, slowing their momentum. Green is great in pass protection because he has the combination of strength and athleticism to match defenders and seems to have an answer for whatever pass-rush move defenders attempt on him.
Flexibility: Green has good flexibility that shows itself in both his run blocking and pass protection. In the run game, Green’s flexibility allows him to work to second-level defenders with a great stance that allows for him to explode into defenders upon contact. In the pass game, Green uses his flexibility to maintain great knee bend and move laterally to mirror defenders.
