Pos: 
Two-year starter who lined up at both defensive end and outside linebacker and posted 31 tackles and 3.5 sacks as a senior. Athletic defender best standing over tackle. Fluidly moves about the field, shows quickness when asked to twist or stunt and displays good change of direction. Covers a good amount of area on the field, gives effort against the run and makes plays in space. Agile, easily redirects to the action and also shows a good head for the ball. Breaks down well, uses his hands to protect himself and plays with a nasty attitude.
Neg: 
Easily blocked from plays or taken from the action by a single opponent. Marginal playmaking ability in reverse.
Analysis: 
Green was a solid college pass rusher who was out of position at defensive end for Mississippi State last season but comes with upside. He's a 3-4 outside linebacker prospect who will begin his NFL career as a situational pass rusher as he develops his game and learns to make plays in reverse.
